I found a recipe over at Melanie Dramatic for chocolate chip cookies made with crushed peppermints or candy canes. I changed the recipe a little by using white chocolate chips and left the nuts out because my husband can't eat them. The original recipe called for a cup of chocolate chips but next time I would use a scant 3/4 cup of chocolate chips. I had trouble mixing the entire cup of chocolate chips in to the cookie dough. Personally, I would rather not have quite so many but, if you are a chocolate lover, getting a full cup mixed in should be no problem for you!
The cookies came out great...very tasty. I call them Peppermint White Chocolate Chip cookies. They are a nice cookie for Christmas and winter...perfect with a cup of hot chocolate, topped with whipped cream of course!
