Christmas Cookies – Day 4

The theme for today’s cookies was chocolate.  I started with double chocolate gingerbread – so good!  I have posted the recipe before.  The bad thing about making gingerbread in a loaf pan though is that we don’t get to taste it!  Torture!

I am trying to keep up with my molded chocolate cookies too.  I only make a few at a time so they take longer.  Today we made chocolate covered oreos with crushed candy cane.

The new recipe for today is Candy Shoppe Chocolate Cookies.
