Start a new Christmas tradition making these gluten free chocolate peppermint twist cookies with your kids. You’ll all have fun and make lasting memories.
Christmas is filled with traditions. Each family creates their own and passes them on to the next generation.
One of the traditions that my mom passed on to me is baking Christmas treats. I could sit and watch her bake for hours. I was fascinated by it (and now thirty years later write about my own baking!).
I loved to help out too. I shared her passion, and now enjoy doing the same with my own kids.
So I am always on the lookout for fun, new Christmas treats to try.
A new twist.
Yes, we do the traditional sugar cookies (though we’ve modified them a bit to fit our current lifestyle) and sometimes gingerbread cookies. They are both so much fun to decorate! But my kids and I like to get creative too.
This year we came up with gluten free chocolate peppermint twist cookies.
These cookies combine my husband’s childhood traditions with my kids’ favorite flavors.
Growing up my husband always had peppermint stick ice cream with hot fudge at Christmas time. We now have it every year at our house.
Whenever I ask my kids what kind of ice cream they want, nine times out of ten they say mint chocolate chip.
Peppermint and chocolate go so well together. Plus they are the perfect pair for Christmas. So turning this combination into a delicious treat was fun for the whole family.
