How To Make a Simple Christmas Cookie
You’ll need some simple ingredients to get started. If you are short on time, use pre-made cookie dough and chocolate frosting as in this recipe. Trust me, no-one will even know.
Place your cookie dough into a mixing bowl and crumble like so.
Add your cocoa powder.
Heavy whipping cream up next!
Add a touch of flour to the bowl. Give a good mix to combine ingredients.
Wrap cookie dough around each peppermint patty and bake!
Once completely cooled, frost with a light layer of chocolate frosting.
Top with crushed candy canes.
How gorgeous and simple are these?!

Peppermint Patty Stuffed Cookies

- 3 tablespoons Heavy whipping cream
- 24 York minis dark chocolate peppermint patties from 8 oz package
- 3/4 cup chocolate frosting from 16-0z container
- 1/3 cup hard peppermint candies crushed (about 14 candies)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and place cookie dough into a large bowl breaking up with a spoon. Add cocoa powder, flour and heavy cream, stirring to combine.
- Scoop a heaping tablespoon of dough into your hands and place a peppermint patty on top. Scoop another tablespoon of dough on top of peppermint patty. Form dough around peppermint patty so that dough is completely covering the chocolate. Place onto a baking sheet and bake for 13-15 minutes, or until baked through. Remove and let cool completely.
- When cooled, spread a thin layer of frosting over tops of cookies then sprinkle with crushed peppermint candies.
