It's called Holiday Melting Moment. Literally, the cocoa melts in your mouth when you eat it. The peppermint topping is perfect with it. Something that is very fun to me about making this cookie is that we can not get candy canes in Turkey, nor even Starlight peppermints. So, each year, it's a sort of challenge to see if we'll somehow get some. One year my girls came home from school with some candy canes given to them from US base access friends. I pulled out my stash, and we began trading...."I'll give you 10 Hershey's kisses from my stash for 1 candy cane..." just so I could make the topping to these cookies. My sweet sis-in-law's heart broke when I laughingly described the trading we had done, and she offered to mail me some. But we declined. It's a bit of a game to see how we're going to swing it each year. I do have a stash this year as my mom sent me back with candy she'd purchased all year for the kids for the next year's holidays.
Here's the recipe for this cookie.
So, what is your favorite cookie to make for Christmas and why?
