Chocolate Peppermint Christmas Whoopie Pies
Can you believe the month of November is over already? Where did it go? December sets off a month of frenzy with Christmas and holiday baking.
I am sure more people bake and make holiday treats in the month of December than any other month of the year.
To start off my holiday baking I decided to make these Chocolate Peppermint Whoopie Pies.
The chocolate cookie is lightly flavored with peppermint but you can add a tad more peppermint extract if you like a more minty flavor. I suggest you taste the dough before adjusting though.
I used a variety of Christmas sprinkles to decorate the edges.
This recipe makes about a dozen finished whoopie pies, give or take. A few of the cookies baked up in a not too perfect circle so I didn’t use them. I ate them instead and they are really good. I am thinking with a couple of adjustments this recipe would also be great for ice cream sandwich cookies.
The recipes and opinions are my own.
