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.

While peppermint bark is still soft, sprinkle cookies with crushed candy canes.
