Chocolate Peppermint Cookies Recipe
A delicious and easy dessert for the holidays!
There’s something about chocolate and peppermint that just screams the holidays to me! I love love love these cookies because they combine the delicious goodness of chocolate with the fresh winter taste of candy canes…my kids refer to these as the Candy Cane Cookies…and I must say they are always a hit when I take them to Christmas parties!
With Christmas coming next week we have been in sweets overload!
Don’t get me wrong…I love all of the delicious goodies this time of year…but I’m not a big fan of all the extra calories my family is consuming…specifically, all the sugar the kids are downing every day.
That’s why I try to swap out sugar for Stevia In The Raw® when I’m baking goodies. Stevia In The Raw® is a no-calorie sweetener made from the leaves of the stevia plant. And best of all, the Stevia In The Raw® Bakers Bag has a conversion rate of 1:1. Which means when one of my recipes calls for sugar I can simply switch it out with the same amount of Stevia In The Raw® knowing that the sweetness will stay the same.
