Chocolate Peppermint Cookies
First off, I feel like I should apologize for not getting any blogging done in over a month! Things have been super crazy busy lately (ok, I’ve said that before- excuses, excuses) But hopefully this recipe will make up for it 🙂 One reason I’ve been slacking on my blogging duties has to do with my new obsession- essential oils. I’ve been teaching classes, educating myself and also, busy making things like cookies with essential oils. For research purposes, of course. So how fun would it be to combine my two loves, blogging and essential oils, with something else I love- cookies!
But before I get to the cookies, I have to stop and gush for a minute about how excited I am for a fun opportunity to get an awesome blog makeover that will make my little personal corner of the web look just a little more boss, and contribute to a good cause to boot! Blogelina is giving away 1,000 blog makeovers for only $10– and then donating all the proceeds to cure.org, a ministry devoted to helping children in third world countries who couldn’t otherwise afford much needed surgery to get the medical help they need. Watch this video and be prepared to feel very thankful for all the opportunities our children have in this nation. You can find out all about the blog makeover event here, but hurry! You only have until May 12 to take advantage of the deal!
Now for the cookies!
So, if you’ve been anywhere near me in the last few weeks, you’ve probably heard me raving about these delicious, chocolate-y, peppermint-y cookies I’ve made, oh, I don’t know, a half dozen or so times in the last month. But that’s ok, because if you have heard me singing the praises of these cookies, chances are you also got to sample them. Chances are really good you asked me for the recipe too. So without further ado, here it is. Oh, and if you wonder why things have been quiet around the blog, here’s your answer too: I’ve been busy making cookies.
