There was just one problem.
Happy Valentines Day to mine. To yours.
Valentine Peppermint Creme Cookies
I find chocolate and peppermint the ultimate, crave-worthy combination. If I could eat Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies every morning with a bowl of oatmeal, I would. If I could eat a mint brownie for dinner every night, I would. If I could sleep in a bucket of Junior Mints, I would. If I could build a swimming pool of….oh heck, you get the idea. These little cookies I conjured take the chocolate/peppermint flavor combination to a whole new level. A crisp cocoa-peppermint wafer cookie, topped with a heaping mound of buttermint fondant, sealed together with a milk chocolate kiss. Except for the part where you’ll never want any other sort of cookie, thereby leaving Girl Scouts everywhere without a job, this truly is the ultimate Valentines day treat. Happy Love.
3 T. butter
2 c. powdered sugar
Mix together until it becomes thick and easy to roll with a rolling pin. Roll until about 1/4″ thick. Cut into desired shape. Place atop cooled cookies. Place cookies into melted chocolate CANDIQUIK, spoon chocolate atop until fully covered. Allow to dry on a piece of parchment paper. Makes about 30 cookies.
