A thin layer of decadent dark chocolate envelops buttery cookies and creamy peppermint candy for a three-in-one dessert fix that’s sweet yet refreshing—perfect for an after-dinner treat. Try using a flat surface, such as the bottom of a cup, to flatten the patties, smoothing any cracks with your fingertip, to help ensure the chocolate exterior will be evenly distributed once set. If you prefer a textured appearance, “score” the chocolate by pressing the tines of a fork onto the surface of the dipped cookies while still wet.

How to make

  • Step 1

    Prepare dough: Beat butter with granulated sugar in bowl using electric hand mixer on medium-high speed until fluffy. Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt in small bowl; stir into butter mixture just until combined. Shape into disc; wrap in plastic wrap.

    Refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, prepare peppermint patties: Beat together butter, icing sugar, corn syrup and peppermint extract in bowl using electric hand mixer on medium speed until smooth. Roll by 1 tbsp into 16 balls. Arrange, 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined baking sheet; flatten into 2-inch (5 cm) wide patties. Refrigerate until ready to use.,

  • Step 3

    Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C). ,

  • Step 4

    Let dough stand at room temperature just until soft enough to roll out, 5 to 10 minutes. Roll out to 1/4-inch (5 mm) thickness on lightly floured work surface; cut out 16 shapes using 1-1/2-inch (4 cm) round cookie cutter, rerolling scraps as necessary. Arrange, 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on separate parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Bake, rotating sheet once, until firm and edges and bottoms are light golden, 12 to 14 minutes. Let cool completely on sheet on rack.

  • Step

    Meanwhile, prepare coating: Melt chocolate in heatproof bowl set over saucepan of gently simmering water, stirring, until smooth.

  • Step 6

    Top each cookie with 1 peppermint patty, pressing to adhere. Working with 1 at a time, place cookies on fork, patty side up; dip into chocolate, pressing gently with tines to submerge. Slide fork underneath cookie; lift to remove from chocolate, letting excess drip back into bowl. Return to baking sheet. Repeat with remaining cookies and chocolate. Refrigerate until completely set and firm, about 4 hours.
