Peppermint Pattie Milkshakes - cool and refreshing for summer

Summer is in full swing and it is time for some treats that will cool you down instead of warming up your house.  As much as I want to bake brownies or cookies, I just can’t bring myself to do it right now.  So instead, I am playing with some ice cream.  Sound good to you?  Yeah, I figured there would not be any objections.

Peppermint Patty Fudge Cookies

Peppermint Patty Fudge Cookies 4 labeled

I am sure I have told you this before, but I love mint and chocolate together, especially during this time of year.  So when you have a chocolatey, fudgy cookie that includes York Peppermint Patties, I am in love.  In my adult life, Peppermint Patties have become a guilty pleasure of  mine.

I saw these cookies awhile ago on Pinterest, and knew they would make a great holiday cookie.  And boy was I right!  They are rich and full of chocolate.  But the peppermint swirled throughout leaves such a cooling and light finish to them.  I haven’t brought cookies to school in awhile, so I decided to change that.  I brought them right before their lunch break, so I was still there when they were being eaten.  Let’s just say they went over well.  I made them wait a whole 6 days for the recipe, so hopefully they still love me :)

I know there are lots of people out there who aren’t big bakers, so I am going to let you in on a little secret.  The trick to a great cookie….under bake it.  Seriously.  Not crazy amounts, just a minute or two.  They stay soft and chewy for much longer.  Plus if you want to microwave it for a few seconds for the fresh out of the oven taste, they are still gooey!  And in my opinion, nothing beats a gooey cookie.
