Peppermint Stuffed Chocolate Cookies

By  | 

Mike needed our vehicle today. The plan was he would be back before I needed to leave but he isn’t.

Not his fault that he couldn’t make it happen but I’m sitting in the kitchen with my cookie exchange package of goodies (see the ultimate list of Christmas cookies here) all ready to go…and no car.

#MyDriveTimeStory is sponsored but all opinions are my own. We’ve been looking at options like DriveTime because of days like this. Now I wish we would have come to a decision sooner.

Ideas for Christmas Cookie Exchange

I haven’t been too excited about the process of hunting for a used car, but DriveTime has specially trained technicians that inspect every car, truck, SUV and van for safety and security. That’s peace of mind.

DriveTime has over 139 dealerships and thousands of in-stock vehicles. One of my favorite selling points: they do not hire the stereotypical used car salesman.

Their online auto loan application is 100% personalized to you, your credit score, and the required down payment—they’re one of the only dealerships that provide customers with an exact down payment amount. Curious? Check out their approval process.

Hungry? I have some extra cookies I can share.

  • 1 box chocolate cake mix

  • Repeat with remaining cookie dough.

  • Cool slightly before serving, or cool completely before packaging for gifts.
