Okay, my dh just pulled these from the oven. Holy Cow! No purees, no veggies…just chocolate, peppermint, butter and sugar goodness. Seriously people. It’s 9:30 pm and I want another….better grab a glass of water and watch Greys Anatomy, I need something to distract me! 1 bag Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips
6 T unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 t baking powder
1 bag white chocolate chips
1 cup Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips
In a double boiler melt the bittersweet chocolate chips and butter. In large bowl, beat eggs and sugar until thick; stir in chocolate mixture.
In a small bowl, stir together flour and baking powder; stir into chocolate mixture. Gently mix in white chocolate chips and peppermint crunch chips.
Using a sheet of plastic wrap, form dough into two logs, each about 2 inches in diameter and 8 inches long. As dough will be very soft, use plastic wrap to hold dough in log shape. Wrap tightly. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until firm.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unwrap dough; with sharp knife, cut into 3/4 inch slices. Place slices on parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake 12-14 minutes or until shiny crust forms on top but interior is still soft. Cool on baking sheet.
