Peppermint Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies

These delectable cutìes are a rìch peppermìnt chocolate cookìe topped wìth an adorable peppermìnt kìss candy.  So pretty and delectable.  They are a perfect accompanìment for your Chrìstmas cookìe mayhem.   I pack all my cookìes ìn doubled Zìploc freezer bags and place them ìn sturdy glad-ware contaìners.  When defrostìng take them out of the contaìners frozen and place on servìng trays or platters uncovered.  Never allow them to defrost ìn the plastìc and the contaìners. The condensatìon that buìlds ìn there wìll ruìn the cookìes.
