Thirteenth Annual Twelve Days of Christmas Cookies: Chocolate Peppermint Bark Cookies

Chocolate Peppermint Bark Swirled Cookies 1

Welcome to the 13th Annual Twelve Days of Christmas Cookies!

DAY 1: Chocolate Peppermint Bark Cookies

This versatile chocolate cookie dough makes a wonderful backdrop for melted peppermint bark and crushed candy canes!

You can use any variety of peppermint bark, but I really like these thin chunks that are sold in bags, like chocolate chips.

Peppermint Bark Chips

Bake the cookies, and then immediately place several of the peppermint bark chunks on the hot cookies.

When the peppermint bark melts, use a toothpick to stir the melted chocolate.

Maple Oatmeal Toffee Cookies 3

DAY 10: Maple Oatmeal Toffee Cookies

These are my new favorite cookie. They are chewy, just like an oatmeal cookie should be, with a maple caramel flavor from the maple extract, brown sugar, and toffee bits, which melt into the cookie as they bake.
