It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and we can’t wait to whip up these decadent double dark chocolate cookies with a cool peppermint blast of flavor. We made these cookies with our Black Coco Chia gr8nola and activated charcoal which give them a beautiful dark hue. These cookies will have you asking Santa for “coal” this year! ;)
