chocolate candy cane cookies with white chocolate chips

Christmas is all about two major food groups for me: cookies, and candy canes! Combining the two – heavenly!

Don’t those cookies look yummy? How about festive? What if I said they were really, really easy to make? Oh, did I mention that they taste like peppermint patties?

I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of a batch of these candy cane covered balls of chocolate bliss were frozen and eaten straight outta the freezer. No, my pants are not available for comment.

Eat these with some hot chocolate. Add a candy cane to the mug. Sit back and realize that yes, Christmas does have a flavor, and this is it!

Hello! Welcome to Addicted to Yum!

I'm Jen, and yes, I look guilty. See that lovely jar of salted caramel sauce to my right? Yeah, that one. I've hidden a secret stash in my pantry. Wow it feels sooooo good to say that outloud!
