I have a fun cookie recipe for you! It’s incredibly easy to make and quite festive.

This holiday season, I am all about the cookies, as I love sending cookies to friends that live far away.

I am getting my Betty on this holiday season with two wonderful cookie recipes from from Betty Crocker “Christmas Cookies with Kids” Hub. I don’t have kids but I surely can enjoy making these easy recipes when I am pressed with time.

I don’t think I have to even tell you about my love for peppermint AND white chocolate. They are just so great together and exactly why we are starting the holiday cookie train with these peppermint spiced cookie bark.

Using the special edition Betty Crocker eggnog cookie mix, I made a large spiced cookie. Baked in a rectangular giant cookie shape, I topped this moist cookie with a peppermint white chocolate melt and some candy canes to add some crunchiness!! It’s so easy, quick and will be a fun activity for kids.

I cut mine up in triangles so I can package them and mail to friends. Wouldn’t you want to receive this cookie in a cookie exchange? The combination of eggnog spiced cookie and peppermint and chocolate just screams holidays and it’s a tasty scream.
