I LOVE to make different variations of pudding cookies… and I bake them up probably more often than necessary :)

That being said, I wanted to do the perfect Holiday Spin to it. When I think of holiday flavors, peppermint is the first thing that comes to mind… and what better than to pair it with Chocolate?! Chocolate and I never stray to far away from one another. These cookies are so soft and so perfect for the holiday season. They would make a perfect addition to your cookie plates this year!
