hot cocoa cookies with crushed peppermint

Happy Tuesday! Holiday baking is officially in full swing and today I am sharing with you a fun spin on a traditional holiday beverage: hot cocoa in the form of a cookie sandwich! 

There is just something about the combination of chocolate, marshmallows and peppermint around the holidays…and what better way to combine flavors of the season than in a cookie! I love making Christmas cookies each December, but so many of the recipes are time consuming and complicated. The beauty of this hot cocoa sandwich cookie is that it’s a quick recipe with only a few ingredients that is easily mistaken for a “from scratch” dessert! It’s simplicity will allow you to incorporate these cookies into your holiday making rotation! 

Hot Cocoa Cookies with Crushed Peppermint

{what you will need}
1 pouch double chocolate chunk cookie mix {plus ingredients on the back}

Bake cookies according to package directions. {I went with the larger cookie sandwiches, but you can easily make small or medium sized cookies as well.} Once the cookies are baked, allow to sit for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack. Be sure that the cookies are completely cool before adding the marshmallow frosting. Take a spoonful of the marshmallow frosting and place on one side of the cookie in the center. Spread the frosting out to the edges to make a clean line. Sprinkle desired amount of peppermint candies on the marshmallow frosting before topping with the other cookie. Makes 6 large cookie sandwiches. 

Thanks for stopping by and happy holiday baking!
