A recipe for cookies for Santa- Easy Peasy style

I hate cleaning. I hate being behind at Christmas. Yes, I will be one of those freaky people who have to be out on Christmas Eve shopping. The price I must pay for falling behind. Luckily, it's just a few frames I have to get and one present for K.

So, now for a repost of a cookie recipe I did last year. I just made a bunch of these from scratch for some people, and they were such a hit! K almost devoured them though before I could get them where they were supposed to go.

We all know Santa needs his cookies and these are such fun to make with kids. Let them smash up the candy canes.

By now, you know I don't cook, but every once and a while, I get the urge to make something. It's usually some kind of snack. What can I say?! My mouth is full of sweet tooths or is it teeth? Anyway. I've been having this urge to try something. Now I'm sure I'm not the first one to make these, but I bet this is one of the easiest recipes. I'm all about that easy button when I have a 9yr old hovering. Here is my really quick and easy recipe for.......

Peppermint and Chocolate Candy Cookies

(See how pretty they look?)

1.Buy a bag of chocolate chip cookie mix. The one where you just have to add butter and water. Follow directions to mix.

2.Take one candy cane or more depending on how much peppermint you want. Smash them up. This is the fun part, but make sure it's in little pieces.

3.Mix the mushed up candy cane pieces into the chocolate chip cookie mix.

4.Spoon onto the baking sheet and follow directions for baking.

Wa la! Yummy pretty cookies! My kid when I told her my idea was like Ewww, but she loves them now.
