Peppermint Bark Snowflake Cookies

Jennifer Daskevich


This cookie was inspired by two of my favorite holiday treats - peppermint bark and sugar cookies. These cookies are the perfect combination of both - dark rich chocolate with crunchy spicy peppermint and a soft chewy cookie. Delicious and beautiful!!
