In all honesty, I’ve had this recipe in the back of my mind since August. I’ve been waiting for the holiday season to arrive, and thank goodness it finally has! These paleo dark chocolate peppermint cookies are the most quintessential paleo holiday recipe I’ve done so far. In my totally unbiased opinion, they’re perfect. They have just the cakey consistency I love in my cookies, plus a bit of a twist with melted candy canes. They’re wonderfully chocolatey, rich in flavor, and refreshingly minty. In short – I love them.
