As soon as Walmart started carrying the Andes peppermint crunch pieces, I have been baking with them. I’m kind of addicted to those pink chips!!! I am also severely addicted to pudding cookies…but you know that already:-) This past spring I made Peanut Butter Pudding cookies, and they became my all time favorite cookie. Until now…
I have had a jar of the Jif Mocha spread in my cupboard just waiting to be used. Have you tried that mocha spread yet? It is my new love!!! (It’s possible that I may eat it by the spoonfuls.) I just subbed the mocha spread for the peanut butter and added those yummy peppermint pieces for a fun Christmas cookie. As soon as I ate one fresh from the oven, I was in cookie heaven. These are my absolute favorite cookies now! I need to stock up on more of those Andes chips, so I can make these year round.
I knew these cookies would be the perfect ones to share in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. These delicious fudgey cookies stay soft for days, so they were a great choice to send out in the mail.
Three dozen of these cookies went in the mail, and then I ate the rest while I waited to see what yummy ones I would get back.
I pretty much stalked my mailman until all my boxes came. It was so fun to see who had my name in the swap. I couldn’t wait to eat 3 dozen cookies all by myself. And to find some new blogs to read.
First up were Lemon Coconut Snowballs from Sarah at The Life Album. Then a package of Sour Cream Horns from Cassie at No Day But Today arrived. I could get used to cookies coming in the mail daily! My last box of cookies were Brown Sugar Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Peanut Brittle cookies from Vijay at Nosh On. It. Thank you so much girls. I enjoyed every last bite of these fabulous cookies…I can’t wait to get the recipes:-)
Now excuse me, I have a half a jar of Mocha spread and one last bag of Andes crunch pieces…I’m feeling the urge to bake another batch of these cookies!!! I better get out my fat pants too, because I know I will be eating way too many!!
