Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • ½ cup sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 egg yolk

  • ½ - ¾ teaspoon peppermint extract

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 8 ounce semisweet chocolate, chopped

  • 8 ounce dark chocolate candy melts

Directions

  1. 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.

  2. 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).

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

  4. 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.
