I love the taste of peppermint. There’s something just so refreshing about it and it goes perfectly with rich and creamy chocolate. I found this lovely recipe from The Food Charlatan and the cookies looked spectacular so I had to give it a try.

  • You can chill the dough before placing onto baking sheets as you'll find the flavour changes slightly.
