Peppermint Fudge Cookie Sandwiches

  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 candy canes or 8-10 star mints (about 1/4 cup), crushed
  • 1/4 cup white or semisweet chocolate chips
  • 10 mini foil wrapped peppermint patties, unwrapped

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. If you don't have parchment paper, you can brush vegetable oil on your pan.  Do not use cooking spray as it will cause the cookies to spread to much.
Combine chocolate chips and butter, microwave 40-60 seconds until smooth, stirring after each 20 second interval.  Add sugar and egg, mix well.  Add flour, mix just until incorporated. Drop 20 equal scoops of batter 1 inch apart onto cookie sheet.  Bake 9-11 minutes or until edges are set.  Do not over bake.

Meanwhile, crush candy canes and melt remaining chocolate chips. Set aside.

Remove cookies from oven and immediately turn half over and top with a peppermint patty.  Top with remaining cookies to form 10 sandwiches.  Drizzle chocolate over cookies and sprinkle with crushed candy canes.  Transfer to platter.
