These sound incredibly delicious -- starting with a soft, rich cookie made chocolatey with both cocoa powder and milk chocolate chips. And brown sugar! I think any chocolate cookie with brown sugar has a greater depth of flavor than one made with white sugar. These are a molded or shaped cookie rather than a drop cookie -- that is, you form the dough into balls. To my mind, this always produces a nicer looking cookie.
And then the frosting -- white chocolate and cream cheese will make it nice and creamy, and both peppermint and vanilla extracts (plus crushed candy canes on top) give the perfect flavor to top the chocolate cookies.
I've learned to trust recipes from Jamie Cooks It Up!. They are always scrumptious, easy to follow, and well written. This looks like another keeper.
Happy Rudolph Day -- and please pass the cookies!
