Happy Saturday everyone! Are you having a nice weekend? It is in the 40s here and it feels warm.

I’ve been baking a lot lately. But this is not a secret to anyone!

Christmas is just 20 days away and I’m very excited testing and sharing holiday cookie recipes. Did you know it was #NationalCookieDay yesterday? To me the month of December feels like a cookie month.

No Christmas party will be complete without chocolate cookies! These brownie cookies are so easy to make with just a few staple ingredients. The combination of chocolate and peppermint is always a winner, especially around the holidays! Not to mention these are my husband’s favorite cookies. The best of both worlds – brownies and cookies.

I adapted the recipe from Food and Wine.

In this recipe I used Nestle® Tollhouse Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels, Milk Chocolate Morsels and White Chocolate Morsels. The recipe calls for a lot of chocolate so I recommend that you use good quality chocolate morsels like Nestle Tollhouse.

Since there is a lot of chocolate in these, you might want to get Nestle Toll House’s coupon here.

Feel free to follow them on Pinterest and Facebook for more holiday baking tips and ideas.

I’m in love with the great flavor and fudgy texture!
