Peppermint Flavors

Peppermint is one of the top flavors of the Holiday season.  When I created this cookie I wanted it to not only taste delicious but to look festive as well!

On one side of the cookie I put halved mini peppermint patties and on the other side, I dipped it in white chocolate and sprinkled crushed peppermint candy canes on the white chocolate.  I didn't really think it was going on to come out as delicious as it looked!

Peppermint Patty Chocolate Cookies

These cookies would work great as a gift during the holidays!  They would easily fit inside small treat bags and be tied off with a red and white ribbon.  The flavors in this cookie would also be great for Christmas parties, or even just for a cozy night in with the kids.  It's a cookie everyone can enjoy.

Cookie Dipped in White Chocolate

After making this cookie and adding the peppermint patty pieces, it's important to let this cookie cool completely before moving on to adding the white chocolate.

If you do not wait until the cookie is completely cool and set, it will fall apart and your cookies will be ruined.  I test the cookies by picking them up and checking to see if they still bend.

If they don't bend and start to tear, you're ready for the dipping process.  After dipping these cookies in the melted white chocolate, sprinkle the crushed candy canes on the cookie and let cool.

TIP:  It's a good idea to dip the cookies one at a time to ensure the crushed candy canes will stick to the cookies.

I think chocolate and peppermint were made for each other. Definitely going to share this with my daughter. She and her dad have a relentless sweet tooth. Maybe she can get a bigger allowance;)
