Cookies have dominated my life the last few weeks with cookiepocalypse, Urban Craft Camp, and now the Food Blogger Cookie Swap. Never in my life have I made so many cookies in such a short amount of time, and believe me, I will not be baking cookies again for a looooooooong time. For my final cookie of 2014, I present to you chocolate peppermint oreos!
Anyone who knows me knows that there are two things in cooking that I really hate. The first is rolling out dough, and the second is dipping something in chocolate. Neither of those things ever go as planned. So why did I decide to make something chocolate dipped you ask? Because I’m one of those people who just can’t quit until I get it right.
This year I used candy melts, which helped a lot, but I still didn’t quite get the consistency I was hoping for. The good news with all rolled dough and chocolate dipped fails, is that they still taste good no matter how they look.
I hope my cookie swap matches enjoyed my simple, yet tasty, cookie choice. I certainly enjoyed the cookies I received. So much so, that I didn’t even get a chance to photograph them before they were gone. They were seriously amazing.
The first cookie I got was brownie sugar cookies from Sarah at Whole and Heavenly Oven. I had eaten all but 5 which I was saving to photograph. I looked over just as The Hubs was stuffing the last one in his mouth. Whoops!
Next I got some white chocolate gingerbread cookies from Aimee Broussard. Those didn’t stand a chance as The Hubs and I are both gingerbread fanatics. Once again, gone before the photo could get snapped.
Unfortunately I only received two batches of cookies this year instead of three. These things are bound to happen with an event of this magnitude. I have already consumed a record amount of cookies for the year, so thank you random third cookie match for watching out for my waistline and not sending cookies!
