I made these Double Chocolate Peppermint Swirl Cookies for the fourth annual Great Food Blogger’s Cookie Swap.
This was my first year participating in this wonderful event. If you haven’t heard about it before, it’s where food blogger’s from around the world participate in a cookie swap coordinated and led by Lindsay from Love and Olive Oil and Julie from The Little Kitchen.
All proceeds this year go to support Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, an amazing non-profit organization funding new therapies in the fight against pediatric cancer.
Each participant is matched with three random food bloggers who you send a dozen of your favorite cookies to. In return, we each receive a dozen cookies from three “mystery” food bloggers to enjoy as well.
The first cookies I received were from the sweet Jenna of To Deliciousness and Beyond. They were fabulous Double Chocolate Mint Cookies and were sent all the way over from Italy where Jenna is currently stationed. My husband is a huge chocoholic and mint fan and was excited to see these show up first.
The second cookies I received to my amazing luck and delightful surprise were from my blogger friend Maegan of The Baker Mama. They were Peppermint White Chocolate Pudding Cookies that my family could not stop raving about.
Thank you very much to Jenna, Maegan and Leandra for the amazing cookies! My family enjoyed each and every one of them and I can’t wait to race over to your posts and grab the recipes.
Chocolate and peppermint are perfect for this time of year so one half of the cookie is a rich and indulgent chocolate cookie dough with some festively sprinkled peppermint chips folded in. The other half is a classic soft and chewy chocolate chip cookie. They combined two of my favorites with a holiday twist into one delectable treat.
I packaged up a dozen each of these gems as carefully as I could and shipped them on their way.
Hopefully they all arrived safely to Sharon, Lindsay and Amber and you all enjoyed them as much as we did!
Thank you very much Lindsay and Julie for putting this cookie swap together for the fourth year!
