Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

Here is a delicious chocolate, chocolate chip and peppermint cookie that would be perfect to make for your family or for gifts. I used soft peppermint candies in these cookies, and roughly chopped them. You can cook them around 10 minutes for a softer cookie, and up to 14 minutes for a crunchier cookie.
