I know, I know, I’m late with this recipe! But, I got caught up in Christmas business and some anxiety attacks so I’m sure you’ll understand 🙂 This cookie uses the same dough as the previous recipe but features a different filling: dark chocolate and salted peanuts – mmm.
Using one dough with several fillings is perfect for Christmas of course – you can serve loads of flavors so that everyone can find something they like. I like using salted peanuts in combination with chocolate because the salt brings out the chocolatey flavor. You can use the same principle for hot chocolate by adding a pinch of salt, trust me, it will change you chocolate life!
These cookies are also great to serve with some (vanilla or chocolate) ice cream, or even to make mini ice cream sandwiches with for a cute and easy Christmas dinner dessert!
