On the 5th Day of Sugar my true love gave to me Peppermint Cookie Bars and can I just say these bars are definitely Christmas-y. Peppermint is definitely a holiday flavor, don’t you think? But I love peppermint anytime of the year. Oh my heck, these bars are so, so good. Buttery and chewy with a hint of peppermint and then they are topped with a thick layer of a cream cheese peppermint frosting and finally sprinkled with crushed peppermint candy. You will love them.
Now I know we there are some out there who are not huge fans of peppermint and could take it or leave it, but the peppermint in these is not overpowering so you should give them a try. These are the perfect cookie to make for a cookie exchange, you’ll be the star of the show.Print
