Line a third bowl with wax paper and scoop it all in the center. Cover and chill for one hour.

Drop onto lightly greased cookie sheet (I prefer coconut oil)

Add your bits. I served the peppermints on the side this time.  Also, if you prefer to have non-fully melted chocolate…you can add those half-way through as well….

Bake at 350 for 10-14 minutes / Rule of thumb…less time for softer cookies, more time for crunchy.
