So again to cookies.  These darkish chocolate cookies move SO effectively with the Peppermint M&M candies.  I seen additionally they have Mint M&M candies this year, I’m no longer certain how they range from the peppermint (I’m pondering perhaps they're chocolate mint versus the white chocolate peppermint???), but I’m guessing the two might work well.  And needless to assert you possibly can use traditional M&Ms and even simply chocolate chips. They work huge with the Nestle Holiday Morsels.  I made these cookies here.
