I love this cookie trick! I melt Hershy peppermint kisses instead of the chips. They come out pink, but taste heavenly!

I made this recipe for Christmas. Everyone loved them, they did not last very long. They were simply fantastic. I would like to find a way to crush the peppermint better though.

Yummy!!! We couldn't get enough of these cookies! I did have to double the batch to get the 36 cookies the recipe said it made. I'm going to try these again with red hot candies instead of the peppermints to mix it up a bit!

Really easy to make. Smashed up the candy a bit too much but other than that, a breeze. And most importantly, absolutely yummy.

I purchased good dark chocolate from a candy company and what a difference. These are so good. I will be making these again.

Dough is a little bit dry & crumbly but easy to form into balls. Crushing the candy was too hard - I resorted to a hammer & a covered bag of candy. Half of the cookies I just dipped & left off the candy for those who don't like peppermint. I'll try sprinkles, maybe nuts, next time. Very sweet cookie.

True,easier to crush either candy in baggie as previous tip, you can also crush peppermint bark in place of the candies or 1/2 & 1/2.

Can you say addictive? I made several batches of these; half went to church for some care packages for the local college students that attend and the other half was eaten by my family in a matter of days! Including the ones I saved in the freezer for Christmas! I have to make more now and hid them!

Instead of using the crushed up peppermints, I used the Andes Peppermint pieces that you can find in the baking aisle. They are already broke up & soft. I have found them at Christmas time, not sure if they are available all year.

use about 4 candy canes off your tree, unwrap and place into ziplock bag. break with a rolling pin.. a little easier than a blender
