I know, I know, I’m late with this recipe! But, I got caught up in Christmas business and some anxiety attacks so I’m sure you’ll understand 🙂 This cookie uses the same dough as the previous recipe but features a different filling: dark chocolate and salted peanuts – mmm.
Using one dough with several fillings is perfect for Christmas of course – you can serve loads of flavors so that everyone can find something they like. I like using salted peanuts in combination with chocolate because the salt brings out the chocolatey flavor. You can use the same principle for hot chocolate by adding a pinch of salt, trust me, it will change you chocolate life!
