Peppermint Fudge Cookie Sandwiches
Sandwiching a creamy peppermint candy between warm brownie cookies creates an irresistible sweet treat.
- ¾ cup (175 mL) semi-sweet chocolate morsels
- ¼ cup (50 mL) butter
- ½ cup (125 mL) sugar
- 1 egg
- ¾ cup (175 mL) all-purpose flour
- 2 candy canes or 8-10 peppermint hard candies (about ¼ cup crushed)
- ¼ cup (50 mL) white or semi-sweet chocolate morsels
- 10-12 mini foil-wrapped peppermint patty candies, unwrapped
Preheat the oven to 375°F/190°C. Line a Large Sheet Pan with a 10" sheet of parchment paper or use the Reversible Silicone Baking Mat. Combine the chocolate morsels and butter in the Classic Batter Bowl. Microwave on HIGH for 40-60 seconds or until smooth, stirring after each 20-second interval using the Classic Scraper. Add the sugar and egg to the batter bowl; mix until well blended. Add the flour; mix just until the flour is incorporated. Using a Small Scoop, drop 20 level scoops of batter, 1" apart, onto the pan. Bake 9-11 minutes or until the edges are set. (Do not overbake.)
Meanwhile, place the candy canes into a resealable plastic bag; crush them using the flat side of a Meat Tenderizer and set aside. Place the white chocolate morsels into the Small Micro-Cooker®; microwave, uncovered, on HIGH for 30-60 seconds or until melted and smooth, stirring once. Set aside.
Remove the sheet pan from the oven to a Stackable Cooling Rack. Immediately turn over half of the cookies using a Mini-Serving Spatula; top with the peppermint patties and remaining cookies to form 10 sandwiches. Drizzle chocolate over the cookies using the Chocolate Drizzler and immediately sprinkle with crushed candies. Transfer to a serving platter. Line the pan with another sheet of parchment paper or the silicone baking mat and scoop the remaining batter onto the paper or mat. Bake 9-10 minutes or until the edges are set. Assemble the sandwiches as directed above.
