This Peppermint Crunch Chocolate Chunk Cookies Recipe is a family favorite and so easy to customize!  We love adding peppermint during the holidays but use cinnamon candies for Valentine’s Day and Chick-o-Sticks for Easter…or caramel corn for Halloween….I love how versatile this Peppermint Crunch Chocolate Chunk Cookies Recipe is!

A Delicious and Chocolate Cookie Treat!

So today we helped my mom put up her Christmas tree…and it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!  Little Man is just beyond excited about seeing Santa Claus and keeps telling Miss Jellybean “you have to be good so Santa will bring toys.  He only brings toys if you listen to mommy and daddy!”


All of last year’s constant repetition of “behave, Santa’s coming” finally paid off and he GETS it this year!!  Total parenting win!!

Anyway, it was quite the experience decorating the Christmas tree with a 4 year old who wants to do it all and a 1 year old who wants to tear it all down.  Miss Jellybean has entered that stage where she thinks it’s hilarious to just empty out baskets, unfold laundry, throw all the books from the bookshelf on the floor….yep, pretty much she’s into mess mode….the bigger the better!  Well, Little Man would strategically place an ornament on the tree and Miss Jellybean would pop up right behind him and take the ornament off the tree for inspection….usually with her mouth.

So, what started out as a fun holiday tradition turned into Hubs and I swapping off containing Miss Jellybean while Little Man threw a fit every time she would wiggle herself loose and make a bee-line to the freshly decorated tree.  Luckily we had these delicious Peppermint Crunch Chocolate Chunk Cookies to keep us sane!
