Although I haven't tried THIS recipe, it's also the same cookie that was featured in Southern Living's Christmas cookbook a number of years ago and they taste wonderful. For the 'frosting' I warmed up white candy squares in a pan and added almond extract to it to give it a little more flavor and thin it down a bit before coating the cookie. You might have some fun experementing with the candy coating by using different chocolate or frostings with sprinkles or nuts. Have fun - That's what life is about!

Easy and quick yummy cookie! I like chewy cookies so I didn't use the flour, I just sliced the sugar cookie mix and baked it. And instead of dipping, I just spread some of the melted chips on top of the cookies and then sprinkled crushed candy canes on top. I will definitely make these again!

Sounds great! I'm going to make it even easier by using the "Ready-To-Bake" sugar cookies. I'll let you know how they turned out...

I wanted to read the "reviews" of these cookies because they look really good. But, when I clicked on "reviews" I only found a very small number of people who actually made this cookie! I really don't want to read a bunch of complaining that has nothing to do with how good these cookies are or aren't...especially at holiday time. So, please only write a review if you've actually made the recipe!!!! For my "review" these were quick, easy, pretty and yummy! Definitely a keeper!

Oh by the way, you can melt the chocolate without the oil, but it will be really thick, that is why it calls for it, it makes it easier to work with, and as far as the flour if its that big a deal leave it out! dont really think its going to make that big of a difference, im thinking it will probably give you a little firmer of a cookie, just like if you were going to do cut out cookies, it says to add the flour.
Cant wait to make this! the boys are going to love crushing the candies and dipping the cookies in chocolate! i think i will get a big wow at our christmas dinner this year!
THANK YOU PILLSBURY!!

Are you serious people, get a life! Why even write a review if all you are going to do is complain and havent even tried it yet. Before i even knew how many ingredients there were i thought it looked like an awesome cookie, just by going by the picture, i would have clicked on it anyway whether it said 3 ingredients or not, and most of you would have too! i mostly go by what looks good or fun for my kids to make when pillsbury sends me an email, never by the ingredients! and if you really want to complain, i took a look at all the "3" ingredient cookies and some of them have more too, so leave this poor cookie and pillsbury alone!

I made these over the weekend using the semi-sweet chocolate chips, they were awesome! The only bad part was waiting for the chocolate to harden, it seemed to take forever! Well worth the wait though, they are pretty & tasty.

This sounds like a great recipe. I can't wait to make it with my kids, they'll have a ball with it. We may even dip some in milk chocolate - yum!
