Christmas is a very special time of the year and it’s always fun to indulge in extra special treats. These Chocolate Peppermint Cookie Bars are extra special but fairly easy to make.
They are not overly sweet and are great for the grandkids or served at one of the many Christmas Parties that we attend this time of the year.
This is a great time to start gathering your Christmas Recipes in a Christmas file. Organizing just makes life easier and gives you more time during the holidays. Amazon has some very nice Inexpensive Recipe Organizers that would be perfect for to get this started.
Other than organizing our recipes for this season, we are stocking up on Red Fiestaware over at Amazon. It’s gorgeous and can be used for Christmas, Valentines Day and several other times during the year which makes the most out of our dollars.
We also like to buy chocolate mint peppermint candy canes which adds a different touch to the norm but these bars are delicious either way. So if you are a traditionalist when it comes to candy canes or like the gourmet candy canes this recipe will be delicious.
