Peppermint Fudge Sandwhich Cookies

Chocolate & peppermint is my favorite dessert combination.  What's better than that combo in a cookie!  Take a look at this recipe.

¾ cup semisweet chocolate morsels

¼ cup butter

½ cup sugar

1 egg

¾ cup all purpose flour

¼ cup candy canes or peppermints

¼ cup white or semisweet chocolate morsels

Chocolate covered peppermint patties

Picture & Recipe from the Pampered Chef

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Line pan with parchment paper.  Combine chocolate morsels and butter and microwave until smooth, stirring every 20 seconds.  Blend in sugar and egg.  Add flour; mix just until flour is incorporated.  Drop spoonfuls, 1 inch apart, onto a pan.  Bake 9-11 minutes or until edges are set.  Meanwhile, crush candy canes or peppermints in plastic bag and set aside.  Microwave white chocolate morsels 30-60 seconds or until melted  and smooth.   Set aside. When cookies are baked, immediately turn over half or the cookies; top with peppermint patties and remaining cookies to form sandwiches.  Drizzle white chocolate over cookies and sprinkle with crushed candies.  Transfer cookies to cooling rack.
