We had lots of celebrations last night and like always, we ended up eating way too much that we thought we would πŸ˜‰ Did it happen with you too or is it just us πŸ˜‰ ?

But I definitely wanted to share these Festive Chocolate Chip Cookies with Peppermint Icing with you’ll as we are heading over to a gameday or weekend.

I know some of you would be looking for that quick but not that heavy festive dessert kind of a recipe.


What’s in My Festive Chocolate Chip Cookies with Peppermint Icing?

So guess what, what’s better than these loaded cookies that are filled with all your favorite festive ingredients like cranberries, marshmallow, chocolate chip and much more.

I added some crushed peppermint toffee too for that ‘Oh la la’ taste and also iced it with some extra peppermint. But feel free to skip or add any other ingredient of your choice.

And did I tell you we got everything from the convenient ‘Dollar General‘ which is offering tons of coupons on your festive ingredients.


And if it’s a gameday then it cannot be complete without everyone’s favorite food – Pizza πŸ™‚

So apart from other ingredients, I also picked up the Rising Crust DiGiorno Pizza which bakes super fast and tastes yummm.

I mean pizza + cookie is the perfect combination for any gameday !


Enjoy your day ahead and I’ll keep it short this time and see you’ll next week with a new recipe.


Here’s our Dollar General DiGiorno Pizza & Our Cookie ingredients.
