Chocolate Peppermint Shortbread Cookies Recipe

First off I need to give a shout out to my dad for helping me come up with recipe ๐Ÿ™‚

We were in the cookie aisle at Winco and I thought a chocolate covered cookie would be a great idea and my dad agreed

We could not agree on what cookie to use as the base but finally agreed on shortbread cookies ๐Ÿ™‚

Side Note – My husband ate ALL the cookies in the picture above ๐Ÿ™‚


I thought the Lorna Doone Shortbread cookies are a perfect choice – I decided to have the textured top be the bottom of the cookie

I also decided not to dip the cookie only on one side – you can dip the whole thing but I found it pretty messy when I tried to do it that way

This is also a perfect last minute treat for family or friends

Also if it is past Christmas it is a perfect way to get rid of all those extra candy canes —- I always seem to have a ton laying around after Christmas
