I received product from Nielsen-Massey Vanillas to help create this post.
Peppermint is definitely associated with the Christmas holiday season. Each year I add new cookies to my holiday gift tin repertoire. In past years I’ve made minty dark chocolate delights and Andes creme de menthe cookies, from a minty perspective. Double chocolate peppermint cookie is this year’s newbie. The double chocolate comes from cocoa and chocolate chips. The peppermint flavor is present but not overwhelming. My kids liked them so much they asked me to make them again before Christmas.
For the peppermint I used Nielsen-Massey pure peppermint extract. Whenever I smell peppermint it reminds me of my childhood and the Christmas season. What I love about Nielsen-Massey is the pure flavor and scent of their extracts. In addition to their peppermint I also have their almond, rose water and vanilla on hand. I have always believed that if you use good ingredients you will have a better result. Nielsen-Massey is a quality product.
