Introduction: Chocolate Peppermint Sugar Cookies

This is a great twist on sugar cookies--chocolate peppermint sugar cookies. These make perfect gifts for Christmas to give to friends and family! As one of the three ingredients, store-bought cookies are always fine, but if you prefer to make them yourself, check out my instructable for Christmas Sugar (Spritz) Cookies.

Have fun in the kitchen!

Step 1: Ingredients

Ingredients

(for 4-6 cookies)

3 mini candy canes (or 1 medium sized one)

1/3 cup chocolate chips

4 mini sugar cookies (spritz cookies)

Step 2: Melt Chocolate

Melt chocolate in microwave for 2 minutes on half power (50%), stirring in between.

Step 3: Preparing Candycanes

Smash candy canes in their wrappers with the handle of a kitchen knife, or something flat and similar. See picture for what candy cane should look like after crushing.

Cut wrappers, and pour crushed all candy cane into a bowl.

Prepare a place for your cookies by placing a piece of parchment/wax paper on a small/medium plate.

Step 4: Dip in Chocolate

Dip in chocolate by hand to cover about 3/4 of the cookie (leave room for finger space).

Step 5: Cover With Candy Cane

Place in candy cane crumbs on both sides until covered. Do this with all the cookies. Place on parchment/wax paper on plate, and refrigerate for around 10 minutes before eating or placing in gifts bags.

Step 6: Done!
