Peppermint Stuffed Chocolate Sugar Cookies
These rich peppermint stuffed chocolate sugar cookies are crispy on the outside yet soft and gooey on the inside. Perfect for gifting during the Holidays!
Even though I am NOT a big fan of mint flavor, I do like it paired with chocolate such as these peppermint stuffed chocolate sugar cookies.
Honestly, I find the flavor of peppermint too STRONG and unless it’s mellowed out with other ingredients, I get very NAUSEOUS.
That being said, I was at the BlogHer Food conference this weekend and a friend of mine gave me a little gift box of various candies and chocolates coz she knows I have a sweet tooth (Thanks hun!).
So when I got home, I decided to make peppermint patty stuffed chocolate sugar cookies coz they are so POPULAR and I wanted to see what the big FUSS is all about!
I used my favorite chocolate sugar cookie recipe and STUFFED one peppermint patty into each cookie ball.
Then I tossed a few SPRINKLES and baked the cookies, crossing my fingers and hoping for the BEST.
I was WORRIED these cookies would be a mess with chocolate and mint oozing all over but that did not happen at all…Woohoo!
These cookies were CRISPY on the outside and soft yet firm on the inside.
Unlike other stuffed cookies I have tried in the past, these cookies did NOT get soggy and soft over time.
They remained crispy until the day I finished them off.
My chocolate sugar cookie recipe is RICH and packed with a very strong and rich chocolate flavor.
That’s why it worked soooo well with these sweet and minty patties.
Well, that’s all for today.
