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
(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.
