On the Third Day of Sugar my true love gave to me . . . Chocolate Sandwich Cookies with Candy Cane Buttercream
I’ve gone from being on a pumpkin kick to a peppermint kick . . .it must be the holidays!
These cookies are so yummy. I took my recipe for chocolate marshmallow cookies and just rolled the dough into smaller balls and then frosted them with insanely good candy cane buttercream, then I rolled the edges in crushed candy cane.
I’ve mentioned it before, but to me, it’s all about the frosting—feel free to use a little less frosting, but why would you?
Make sure when you are crushing the candy canes for the frosting that you pulverize them in a blender or food processor. You want them to turn into powder. Also, if you want the mint flavor a little stronger, add the peppermint extract. I added about 1/4 of a teaspoon and it was just perfect.
These cookies not only look so dang holiday-ish (is that even a word?), they are absolutely delicious!
If you’re needing a fun, yummy neighbor treat, these cookies would be perfect!Print
