Although I love a hot, delicious Pumpkin Spice latte, my favorite beverage this time of year is Peppermint Mocha.  Serve up a plate of these cookies, made with a special peppermint mocha cookie recipe, at Christmas parties and gatherings this year! If you like these cookies, try my Peppermint Mocha Glazed Donut Holes, too!



This recipe is great because not only do these cookies look fun and festive, the kids can help dip and sprinkle. Super easy and delicious! If you want another fancy Christmas cookie, check out this recipe for raspberry bow tie cookies.
