These cookies have a slight crisp to the outside but a soft, gooey brownie like texture on the inside. They are intense, guaranteed to please any chocolate lover! I built this recipe after studying about ten or so variations, putting together what I thought would make the perfect cookie and if I haven't made I'm pretty darn close! This is the Peppermint Bark Cookie post, I also did a variation with Andes Mints. I added crushed Peppermints to the mix for a lingering, warm, almost spice from the peppermint. The peppermint adds a great crunch within the cookie. And the white chocolate chips add a creamy, smooth, sweet balance to the peppermint and completes the peppermint bark effect of the cookies.
