These cookies are great for around the holidays (or any time you have a chocolate/peppermint craving!), and they are sure to put a smile on your face! My sister, who is a wonderful baker, came up with this recipe and gave these treats away as a gift! I doctored them up a little, to decorate them on the outside! Have fun and make them your own!
