Today is National Cookie Day, and while it seems like there is a national day for everything, cookies are definitely worth celebrating.
I think the timing of this holiday is aptly placed. It aligns so well with holiday cookie parties and setting out cookies for Santa. It would seem that December in general is one big cookie month.
To help you celebrate I’m taking my favorite Otis Spunkmeyer cookies and dressing them up for the holidays. This is a simple 2-step process that uses Otis Spunkmeyer Double Chocolate Chunk cookies and turns them into the perfect holiday chocolate peppermint treats.
All you need are your Otis Spunkmeyer cookies, white chocolate (or bright white candy melts), and candy canes (or peppermint candies). In a matter of minutes your cookies will become gorgeous, festive sweets that you can enjoy while cozying up next to the fire or wrapped up as the sweetest holiday gifts for friends and family. To me nothing gets me in the holiday spirit like chocolate peppermint sweet treats.
Dip your Otis Spunkmeyer cookies into melted white chocolate or candy melts. Add a splash of peppermint extract if you like things minty. Place them on a parchment lined baking sheet and sprinkle crushed candy canes over top. Allow to cool.
You can then box and share you cookies. Happy Holidays!
P.S. In celebration of #NationalCookieDay tomorrow, Otis Spunkmeyer has a fun chance to win free cookies! Everyone who enters gets a link for a $1 off coupon. Check it out!
