Not to mention those gingerbread marshmallows…oh my gosh. Their squishy little deformed bodies are somehow incredibly adorable.

But this post is about the marvelous pairing of mint and chocolate. Because even though it makes me feel even colder, I adore peppermint in the winter.

These cookies can be made in a jiffy, and they are chocolatey and minty fresh. But hurry before the limited edition mint chips vanish from the shelves!
