Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

One day Amy thought "hmmmm, I wonder what putting our peppermint drinking chocolate in cookies would taste like?" The taste testers deemed it "DELICIOUS" and "AMAZING"!  Then asked "When are you making more?"

These cookies taste like a peppermint brownie, while having a crunchy and chewy texture.  These are the perfect treat for any peppermint lover!
