Ingredients

Directions

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Microwave chocolate and butter in large microwavable bowl on HIGH 1 to 2 minutes or until butter is melted. Let stand 10 minutes to cool slightly. Add 1/2 cup of the sugar, egg and peppermint extract. Beat with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Gradually beat in flour on low speed until well mixed.
  2. 2. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Press a chocolate candy into the center of each ball, forming dough around the candy to completely enclose it. Roll in remaining 1/2 cup sugar to coat. Place 1 inch apart on greased baking sheets.
  3. 3. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until cookies are set. Cool on baking sheets 5 minutes. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
  1. White Chocolate Drizzled Peppermint Truffle Cookies: Prepare, bake and cool cookies as directed. Melt 4 ounces white baking chocolate, coarsely chopped, and 4 teaspoons milk as directed on package. Stir in 1/8 teaspoon McCormick® Pure Peppermint Extract. Spoon into small resealable plastic bag. Cut a small piece from one of the bottom corners of bag. Close bag tightly, then drizzle the chocolate in a zigzag pattern over each cookie. If desired, sprinkle each cookie with finely crushed peppermint candies.
  2. Sparkling Peppermint Truffle Cookies: Prepare and shape cookies as directed. Roll in holiday-colored sparkling sugars. Bake as directed.
