Chocolate and peppermint are such a fantastic flavor combination for the holidays, and this chocolate shortbread recipe
is a great way to enjoy it. Soft, buttery shortbread is dipped in white chocolate, then crushed peppermint candies for a festive cookie that tastes as good as it looks.
If you don't want to go to the trouble of crushing your own peppermint candy by hand, look for "peppermint snow," which is basically crushed peppermint candy in the cake decorating aisle at your local supermarket.
