Peppermint White Chocolate Cookies

There is nothing better than homemade Christmas cookies to kick off the holiday season. I’ve dabbled in the delicious cookie creations around the holidays each year, and I think I finally found my go-to recipe. These Peppermint White Chocolate cookies are absolutely amazing. They taste like a little piece of Christmas. Yes, they are that good!

  9. Add white chocolate to a microwave safe bowl and heat until smooth
