Quick Chocolate Peppermint Dipped Sugar Cookies

My son loves when he has a party at school. I mean what kid doesn’t, right? But Drew loves it because I sign up for either candy or baked goods. This year’s Christmas party, we had baked goods. Drew had this elaborate cookie idea with sugar cookies the size of quarters topped with a hard peppermint candy. It took about two weeks but I finally convinced him that that wasn’t really doable and most 10-year-old’s don’t like hard mints. So this year I cheated and bought a package of sugar cookie mix. Drew informed me that that wasn’t “cool enough.” After some brainstorming together we came up with these Quick Chocolate Peppermint Dipped Sugar Cookies!

These cookies are super easy to make. I apologize that I don’t have step-by-step instructions like normal but these were made the night before the party at about 11 pm because I procrastinated way too long on stuff this week. Does this happen to any of you during the holidays?

four: Microwave the chocolate for 30 seconds then stir until smooth. If the chips are not fully melted, continue to heat and stir at 10-second intervals.

five:  Dip a cookie into the chocolate until half is covered with chocolate. After pulling the cookie out of the chocolate,  use a spoon to lightly scrape the excess chocolate off the edge of the cookie so it doesn’t drip.

six: Sprinkle the chocolate-dipped side of the cookie with crushed peppermint.

seven: Let the cookies sit until the chocolate hardens. If you’re impatient like me, place them in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes to speed up the hardening.

That’s it! These Quick Chocolate Peppermint Dipped Sugar Cookies were super simple to make, yet look like you spent hours in the kitchen baking. They were a hit at the party according to Drew and my husband didn’t complain either!
