Peppermint Hot Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies

For our 11th day in “The 12 Days of Christmas Cookies” series I’m featuring a scrumptious chocolate cookie recipe from one of our community contributors, Holly Sander, from the amazingly delicious blog Taste and See. Each dish that comes out of her kitchen is truly a winner, and her festive Peppermint Marshmallow Hot Chocolate Cookies simply knock it out of the park. They’re easy to make - a bonus since we’re all so busy this time of year! - and friends and family will adore them. Who wouldn’t love a decadent chocolate cookie studded with marshmallows, drizzled with ganache, and topped with crushed candy cane!? I know I would. Let’s get baking…
