Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large bowl beat butter with a mixer on medium 30 seconds. Add sugar and salt and beat until combined. Beat in egg yolk and peppermint extract. Beat in flour and cocoa powder. Shape dough into a 6-inch roll. Wrap in plastic wrap or waxed paper. Chill 2 hours or freeze 1 hour or until firm enough to slice.

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Cut roll into 1/8- to 1/4-inch slices. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until edges are firm. Cool on cookie sheet on a wire rack (cookies are too delicate to remove until cooled).

  • In a medium bowl combine semisweet chocolate and candy melts. Microwave 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring twice.

  • Using a fork, dip each cookie into melted chocolate, allowing excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper-lined trays. Chill until set.

To Store

Layer cookies between waxed paper in an airtight container. Store in refrigerator up to 5 days or freeze up to 3 months.

Great recipe and the cookies came out lovely! I made it twice, once letting the dough rest overnight and found that the cookies were great either way. I found that if you rotate the log as you cut slices it keeps the bottom of your slices from getting crumbly. No problems and they taste great! Will definitely make this recipe a third, and probably fourth, time.

Followed the recipe exactly and the dough came out dry and crumbly. After a struggle, i managed to get it into a log. Froze for an hour, and then it all fell apart when i sliced it. I molded each cookie back together, baked them, melted the chocolate, and then they fell apart again when i dipped them (even though they were completely cool). Big mess, big disappointment, big waste of time.
