Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a very good cookie. This is a very good cookie. Everyone who tried them liked them. Only one problem, which was that the crushed candy canes did not stick to the cookies after they had been cooked. I tried sprinkling the topping on halfway through the baking process and that came out much better and resulted in a pretty melted candy design on top of each cookie. When I make them again I will add a couple drops of peppermint extract as another reviewer did. I think that would improve them. Overall, however, a very good cookie.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from These cookies were good but I made some changes. These cookies were good but I made some changes. I do not think I would have liked eating sticky crushed candy cane pieces on top. I wanted to melt the last two ounces of chocolate, stir in some peppermint extract, and dip the baked cookies in it. But wouldn't you know it, the store was all out of pep. extract. Instead I bought Andes mint baking chips and stirred them into the batter before refrigerating. The cookies turned out pretty good--nice and minty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for cookie exchange with the spoonful sizes. Perfect for cookie exchange with the spoonful sizes. Adjust if you want bigger. I crushed my candy canes up a bit too much, but it actually infused the cookies with much more of the flavor and created a bit of a 'glaze'...baking for 6-7 min, then adding candy and baking for another 2-3 min to set decoration. Might be nice with chunkier candy next time like in the picture - and add a dusting of powdered sugar. Anyway, got raves!!!

She left out the candy cane bits and instead dusted them with powdered sugar. (no mint flavour added - so they were really just chocolate truffle cookies) They looked nice and tasted even better! She told me where she got the recipe and now I will rush home to make some for my family get-togethers. Yum!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from i chilled mine in the fridge for around 4 hours (it said min. i chilled mine in the fridge for around 4 hours (it said min. 2 hours, up to 24 hours) and the batter was so hard I couldn't scoop it. first batch, the cookie didn't cook or flatten, just burned on the bottom. Important to let the batter sit at room temp to soften up a bit. The recipe did NOT mention that at all. BUT I'm getting good reviews on the ones that came out ok. rich & but not too sweet.

I had a hard time getting the candy cane bits to stick after the cookies came out of the oven- the 2nd sheet went in with 2 or 3 bits on each cookie- they stuck but didn't look great- I then tried peppermint extract in the batter prior to refrigeration- then baked them and dusted with powdered sugar upon cooling- they were perfect!!! Light, fluffy and cake-like, they taste fabulous!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These cookies are sooooo good! These cookies are sooooo good! I thought the candy cane part was too messy and they didnt stay on the cookie that good though. to take place of the candy cane, i got the candy cane flavored kisses and cut them in half, put half on each cookie right out of the oven. once they melted you can spread it around with a spoon, they tasted exactly the same and not as messy!

I read the comments before making and decided that I didn't want to do the crushed candy topping either, and I couldn't find the Hershey Peppermint Kisses, so I mixed vanilla frosting with peppermint extract then sprinkled red sugar sprinkles on top. Worked perfectly!
