Does it get any better than peppermint everything around the Holidays?  We like to add a bit of peppermint magic to all of our baking, hot chocolate and about anything else we can think of this time of year.  These bars make the perfect gift to wrap up and surprise neighbors and friends.  They’ve got those buttery crisp edges with chewy centers everyone loves.  Get the family in the kitchen and enjoy some of my Candy Cane Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars!

It’s always a pleasure partnering with Eggland’s Best to bring you new recipes!  We’ve used Eggland’s Best Eggs for years.  I love knowing that Eggland’s Best eggs contain six times more vitamin D, 25 percent less saturated fat, more than double the Omega-3s, ten times more vitamin E, and more than double the vitamin B12 than ordinary eggs.

Eggland’s Best’s superior nutrition is due to its proprietary all-vegetarian hen feed that contains healthy grains, canola oil and a wholesome supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp and Vitamin E.  In addition, independent testing has revealed that Eggland’s Best eggs have stronger shells than ordinary eggs, which leads to less breakage and helps them stay fresher longer than ordinary eggs.

Once you’ve creamed your butter and sugars, add your Eggland’s Best Eggs then vanilla.  Stir to combine.

Time for some chocolate chips!  I prefer the mini chocolate chips in these bars, but regular or even chocolate chunks work great too.

Crushed candy cane bits up next!  Many times you can find bags near the chocolate chips at your grocery store.  You can always crush your own candy canes if needed.
