Peppermint Melts 1

Just so easy to make!

 

Ingredients

 

1 cup icing sugar

1 cup butter, softened

1/4 tsp peppermint extract

2 cups plain flour

1/8 tsp salt

1/2 cup finely crushed peppermint sweets

20 – 40 chocolate chips (I guess you could also use Hershey’s Kisses)

 

Method

 

Preheat the oven to 175C/gas mark 4.

In a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer, combine 1/2 cup of the icing sugar and the butter and mix until light and fluffy. Add the peppermint extract and mix to combine. Next, slowly add the flour and salt, mixing until just combined.

In a separate small bowl, combine remaining 1/2 cup icing sugar and the peppermint sweets.

Roll the dough into approximatly twenty 1 1/2-inch balls. Insert 1 – 2 chocolate chips into each ball and re-roll to ensure that theĀ  dough encases the chocolate. Next, transfer to the bowl with the powdered sugar and crushed candies rolling each to coat.

Place the balls on an ungreased baking sheet, spacing them about 1-inch apart. Bake until they start to turn golden brown, about 20 minutes. Remove and transfer to wire wire rack. Cool until they are just cool enough to handle, 3 – 5 minutes. Return the cookies to the bowl with the powdered sugar and crushed candies and toss gently until each cookie is coated.

Store in an airtight container.
