It’s been the longest night of the year, and I have no words.
All I have is love and healing and I am sending those out into the world with all my strength.
For now, I have cookies for you. They are decadent, chocolatey, festive with a hint of a candy cane, and perfect for this holiday season. I hope you can enjoy them with the people that you love. That is all I need right now, to be with all of the people that I love and support and to love and support them to the best of my ability.
Happy holidays to everyone!

A quick note about the sugar in this recipe. I choose to use organic golden cane sugar. You can definitely use refined white sugar, coconut sugar, or whichever granulated sugar you prefer. To be honest, I am of the opinion that sugar is just sugar and you can decide to use a less refined version but in the end it really comes to the same thing, babes. So instead of spending upwards of $10 on a bag of “healthier” sugar, I prefer to limit the quantity I consume. Just a thought, but I would be curious to hear your opinions!
Also, if you are not a fan of peppermint, you can just omit the peppermint extract and add more vanilla. It would be lovely topped with chopped nuts!
