Looking for the perfect Christmas cookies for all your holiday gatherings and giftings? These Peppermint Truffle Cookie Bars are heavenly. This recipe was created for Pillsbury. All opinions are my own.
Hang on a second … I’m drooling. Sorry, I just can’t resist this chewy, silky, amazing cookie. It’s just so good.
These are my new favorite Christmas cookies — it totally upstages all the ones that have come before because of the mix of flavors and textures made in an easy to enjoy bar form. A peppermint sugar cookie base topped with a layer of creamy, rich chocolate truffle topping. It’s pure heaven.
These bars start with Pillsbury’s Peppermint Sugar Cookie Dough, which is absolutely incredible. It’s the perfect balance of cool peppermint and buttery cookie. That cookie layer bakes into a crisp but chewy layer. Then you spread an oh-so-easy-to-make layer of chocolate truffle on top.
Be sure to chill the bars for at least a few hours before enjoying — the truffle layer hardens into a silky treat the longer it chills. Amazing.
