This post is sponsored in conjunction with Christmas Cookies Week. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the Christmas Cookies Week recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

Holiday baking season is the BEST time of year, don’t ya agree? Like Buddy the ELF says “Smiling’s my Favorite”, well, Christmas BAKING is my FAVORITE!! It’s just a time of year that carols are ringing through the air, Hallmark is blasting on the television 24/7, parties galore, shopping, decorating, and spending time with friends and family! I mean what’s not to love!!

And on the baking note, CHOCOLATE is also my favorite especially when paired with PEPPERMINT. These little cookies are brownie like in texture and not overly sweet on their own, but topped with sprinkles and that glorious candy cane kiss! Y’all they are just the PERFECTION!

If you aren’t a big MINT fan, like my husband, don’t go running away! I will give some suggestions for other ways to adorn this cookie below.

Now let’s just talk about these bright and beautiful sprinkles the nice folks at SPRINKLE POP sent me to try! They are loads of fun and really baked up beautifully. Head over and take a look at all the amazing options and assortments they offer.  

The sprinkles I am using today remind me of Whoville in color. So fun, whimsical, and bright! The Grinch is sure to smile when he takes one nibble of these bites of pure bliss! After all his heart will be warmed as each cookie is topped with a kiss 😉

This week is sure to be full of delicious COOKIE recipes, as I am celebrating Christmas Cookie Week along with some of my blogging friends. There is also a great giveaway! So make sure to check all that out below.

Creative Ideas for DECORATING Chocolate Candy Cane Kiss Cookies

Now some people don’t like mint, so these could be make with a regular, white chocolate, hot cocoa, or any type kiss you love! 

It can be made without sprinkles as well! I like to make them and drizzle white and semi sweet chocolate over them as well.

Or melt down some of the candy cane kisses and drizzle over top and sprinkle with some crushed candy canes!

Get creative and make these for whatever occasion you need! Red Candy melts would be divine for Valentines Day too!
