Chocolate Peppermint Chip Cookies

Chocolate peppermint chip cookies to get you in the mood for the Holiday season

‘Tis the season! Our tree is up and presents are sort of getting bought and wrapped. I hate wrapping presents, though. In the future, my kids are probably going to think I’m a disappointment cause the gift wrapping on their friends’ birthday gifts will be pathetic. When I was young, I always looked up to my mom and thought, “moms know EVERYTHING and know how to do everything PERFECTLY.” Which, for me, is true cause my mom’s present wrapping was always perfect and she rarely ever used gift bags, she knew how to sew things and hem things, she knew how to do various styles of braids in my hair. And then I think about myself and I panic because I can’t do ANY of that. I don’t know how to French braid, I don’t know how to sew, I don’t know how to wrap a present neatly..it’s kind of panic-inducing cause I don’t want my kids to think I’m a disappointment. I guess I have some time between now and then to learn, right?
