Chocolate Peppermint Bark Cookies
Giant Foods sent me a package of their limited edition peppermint flavored items. Included in my mailer was a package of double filled peppermint sandwich cream cookies, a box of peppermint whoppie pie mix and a pack of peppermint bark. I was so excited about the box of peppermint goodies I didn’t know what to do. I opened up the pack of sandwich cookies and I was immediately in heaven. They were spectacular. I had to put the pack away or I would eat them all on the spot.
I was thinking about what I should do with the peppermint bark. My first thought was to give it to my sister but I was in the mood for baking and decided to use it for baking instead.
Giant Food introduced the assortment of peppermint Limited Time Originals private label items that has more than 50 seasonal peppermint-filled products in both the non-perishable and fresh departments are now available for a limited time only at Giant.
Sweeten your next holiday gathering with peppermint cupcakes, ice cream, gelato, double layer cake or double filled peppermint sandwich cream cookies. Add flavor to your beverage offerings with the peppermint seltzer, peppermint craft soda or peppermint tea. Bakers will also find fun peppermint ingredients like crushed baking chips, milk chocolate covered marshmallows with crushed peppermint, chocolate bark, brownie and cookie mixes. You can even bring the holiday scent into your home with Giant’s variety of peppermint soaps, candles and cleaning products!
“Giant is excited to introduce the first-ever line of peppermint products for the holiday season this year,” said Dean Wilkinson, vice president of sales and merchandising at Giant Food. “Giant’s Own Brand items are top quality and a great value, which helps our customers save money while enjoying all the special holiday treats they like.”
To make this recipe I used a Chocolate Chocolate Chip recipe and re-purposed it to create this recipe. Instead of using chocolate chips I used the peppermint bark. It was easy to break apart into small pieces. I do suggest you get them to bite sized pieces for baking. That way when the cookies are done you get even bites of peppermint bark and cookies.
