Peppermint Mocha Cookie Crisps

Peppermint Mocha Cookie Crisps- crunch cookie base topped with White chocolate and Andes peppermint #peppermint #fbcookieswap

This is my first year participating in the Food Blogger Cookie Swap! I’m so glad I signed up. It was quite exciting to get 3 separate packages of cookies in the mail, all coming on different days! And, to be honest, with all three batches that arrived to my house, I ate all of the cookies. Without sharing them with the family.

I know. I’m rotten. And selfish.

And they came in the middle of the day when I was home alone. And weak. And hungry. Sorry family!

But I made it up to them by making these delicious Peppermint Mocha Cookie Crisps. Or I thought I was going to make it up to them.

Because as it turned out, this recipe made just over 3 dozen. And I just happened to eat the ones that didn’t make the cut in delivery. And I KNOW if (when) my husband reads this post he is going to say…”when did you make those cookies? I never saw them. And WHEN did you receive 3 dozen cookies in the mail.”

I’m an awful person with a severe sweet tooth. I fight my children just to get the last rice krispie treat. And now, I have to confess to eating all the cookies from the cookie swap, by myself.

Okay. Enough feeling sorry for my husband and kids. Have you read this blog? Have you seen all the treats I make? They get more than enough…. Plus. I can’t take the guilt.

Hahaha, you crack me up! I would have done the same thing, except my husband gets home pretty quickly after me so I couldn’t eat all the cookies fast enough!

These cookies look yummy! I really need to try Jif’s new spreads. This will be a perfect recipe for me to try out the cappuccino hazelnut spread!

How do you eat all those cookies and not gain a pound? I just look at my treats and my pants feel tighter! Oh well, that’s what the holidays are about, right?! :)

Not gain a pound? Umm, you talking to me? You’re so sweet and so wrong…hahaha!!!


Joan@Chocolateandmore December 12, 2012 at 11:56 pm

You should never feel guilty about cookies. Sometimes we just need to keep them to ourselves. These bars sound amazing! If you make another batch and want to torture the family some more you can send some to me!

So glad you found me!!!

These look amazing. I was also adoring all your other peppermint delights. I love it if you would share these on Super Sweet Saturday. Have a great weekend!


Traci December 18, 2012 at 5:14 pm

I can not find the Andes Baking chips, would crushed peppermint candy work the same? Or would it change the taste too much? Thanks for the recipe. Making it for a cookie swap tomorrow :-)


aimee @ shugarysweets December 18, 2012 at 5:58 pm

The Andes baking chips are soft (with a white chocolate flavor). Can you find the Andes peppermint candy (the mini bars, not the chips?) Otherwise, I would even use Hershey Candy Cane kisses, chopped. Hope this helps. As a last resort, go for the crushed peppermint…will add even more crunch to the cookie!!!


Winnie December 22, 2012 at 5:08 pm

Very pretty and quite elegant looking cookies
I’d love to try your recipe so thanks for sharing :)


Laura@bakinginpyjamas August 13, 2013 at 3:39 am

Pinned! These look perfect for the holiday season. I love candy’s cane’s for Christmas time.


Lois December 5, 2013 at 1:27 am

I wish we were still neighbors!!!


Cathy December 10, 2013 at 2:08 am

Thanks for posting this recipe. I have been looking at recipes online and in books and have found very few I want to try. I do HAVE to try these, they look so indulgent :)
I smile at that word indulgent.
I have to admit that I am usually the last one who eats the last 5-6 cookies. It’s about the same time, in the afternoon, too close to fix something to eat because dinner is right around the corner. And yes, I always get blamed. After all I AM the only one here when my husband is at work, LOL
