Hello fellow Sugar Bee fans! I’m Kara from Creations by Kara where I share all things creative – from DIY home decor, to recipes, to printables, I just like to make stuff!!
I’m happy to be here for Mandy’s Christmas series. I stalked her blog for years before I met her in real life and discovered she was just as kind, cute, and talented as I thought she would be! 🙂
Today I’m sharing a cookie recipe that I came up with to feed my addiction to all things chocolate and mint. I love all of the chocolate mint candy that only comes out for the holidays, and I am always looking for ways I can incorporate it in my baking! This is the first time I’ve used the Andes peppermint crunch baking chips. They look like crushed up candy canes, but of course since they are chocolate- they taste even better!
I was originally just going to add chocolate chips, but then I remembered these cookies and decided to throw in some Oreos as well. So good! The cookies are soft and chewy, and it’s fun biting into chunks of Oreos. My family loved these so much I actually had to make a second batch because they ate them all before I had a chance to take photos. (It was technically just a half batch, but still!) These are some seriously yummy chocolate chip cookies!

For an easy Christmas neighbor gift, just wrap a few of these cookies up in a cellophane bag and attach a Christmas gift tag.
