Chocolate Peppermint Sandwich Cookies

Back in March I made these exact same cookies, but the filling was dyed with green coloring and I left off the candy cane pieces.  It’s amazing the things you can do with a simple, 3 ingredient cake mix cookie recipe.

The candy cane pieces were pretty easy to make.  I threw 4-5 candy canes in my food processor and chopped those suckers to pieces.  Then I used a wire colander to separate the pieces from the candy cane dust.  The pieces I used on the cookies were about the size of coarse kosher salt.  I didn’t want them too big because I wasn’t about to have people chipping their teeth.  I did find that the icing softened up the candy canes a little so they weren’t too crunchy.

 Here’s a printable 4×6 chocolate peppermint sandwich cookies recipe card for you.  Another Christmas gift from me.  Man, am I on fire with all the giving this year or what?  Click on the image to head to the download page.

Are you a big peppermint fan?  Yeah, me too.
Have you made cake mix cookies before?
Any big weekend plans?

Perfect Christmastime treat!

Stalk away!

  5. These looks DELICIOUS!! I’ve been looking for a “peppermint chocolate” cookie to add to my batch of cookie marathon batches. Does the cream filling stiffen up at all? Or do they stay a bit gooey?

  6. Oh yum! Looks delicious!

    My grandson and I made these exactly to your recipe and they came out perfect! Cookies were just right for a piped frosting and the frosting was just the right consistency and deliciously peppermint. I like your method of sieving the crushed candy-canes too worked excellently. Thank you for a great recipe and a good time with my grandson!

  18. You could certainly see your enthusiasm in the article you
    write. The arena hopes for even more passionate writers like you who
    are not afraid to say how they believe. Always go after your heart.
