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!

    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?

    Those look delicious!! I wasn’t always a fan of peppermint, but for some reason, this year I haven’t been able to get enough of it. Seriously – I want to bake some of those cookies asap. Let’s be friends, throw a Christmas party, and we’ll make them for some sweet treats :)

    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!
