Peppermint Patty Cookies

York peppermint patties are one of my favorite candies. I love the minty-chocolatey goodness that you can get biting into on little patty. I have seen recipes to make them from scratch, but haven’t crossed that bridge yet…

I’m not going to lie, I ate a LOT of cookies while I was at Hershey’s. These were hands down, my favorite of the entire trip. They’re awesome. I knew I had to make them at some point when I got home.

It wasn’t until after the holidays that I had time to make these delicious little cookies. The dough on my cookies seemed a little wetter and thinner than I expected. I’m not sure why that happened. The cookies were delicious even if they were really messy to assemble. I stored these in freezer and hubby and I enjoyed snacking on them straight out of the freezer! It made the smooth peppermint filling even more refreshing.

Peppermint Patty Cookies

Yield: 2 dozen

Ingredients:

2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 Tbsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups flour
1/3 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
24 to 26 small (1-1/2 inch) York Peppermint Patties
White decorator's sugar

Directions:

Beat butter and sugar in large mixing bowl; add egg, milk and vanilla, blending thoroughly. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Add to butter mixture, blending well. Refrigerate dough about 1 hour or until firm enough to handle. (Dough will be a little soft.)

Heat oven to 350. Lightly grease cookie sheet or line with parchment paper. Remove wrappers from peppermint patties.

Roll dough into 1-1/4 inch balls. For each cookie flatten ball slightly; press peppermint pattie into dough. Mold dough around pattie so that it is completely covered. Place on prepared cookie sheet. Using knife edge press star design into surface of each cookie; sprinkle with decorator's sugar.

Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until cookie is set; sprinkle with additional sugar, if desired. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 2 dozen cookies

    It really helped to break it out into steps. And the help from Hubby was big. If I had to do all 80 of them myself, I probably would have given up half way through…

    Very pretty! I’ve seen those brownie molds. I’m waiting to grab one when I get one of those 40% off coupons.

    Glad to hear your MIL had a wonderful party.

    Have you ever tried to freeze them after you dipped them in chocolate? I am thinking of making some for a wedding but wouldn’t have time to dip them on the day of the event.

    Lisa, I have not done that for brownie pops before. But I have frozen cake balls which are also covered in chocolate. I would assume it would work just fine. You could always make a small batch to test it out. Definitely let me know how it goes!
