Quick & Easy Peppermint Crunch Cookies

The holiday season just calls for peppermint, doesn’t it? Of course, the holiday season also calls for chocolate, but then pretty much every season calls for chocolate. At any rate, if you love the combination of peppermint and chocolate as much as I do, you are going to love these Quick and Easy Peppermint Crunch Cookies. Baking cookies, as much as I would like to do it, is really rather tedious and time-consuming. This is an easy way to get fabulous results with a minimal amount of work. Try these at home, slip them onto your cookie tray, and wait for the compliments.
Quick & Easy Peppermint Crunch Cookies

1 9-oz. pkg.
Famous Chocolate Wafers
1 11-12 oz. pkg. white chocolate chips
2 - 4 drops oil of peppermint, more or less, to taste
Crushed peppermint candies, if desired

In a microwave safe bowl, melt white chocolate chips, at 30-second intervals, until smooth and creamy. Stir in oil of peppermint. Dip chocolate wafers into white chocolate and place onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle immediately with crushed peppermint candies, if desired. Allow to harden at room temperature, or slide them into the fridge for 15-20 minutes.

If you prefer dark to milk chocolate in your peppermint cookies, you will love these Thin Mint Clones!

I cannot find the cookies anywhere in Dallas which I find hard to believe. I remember the icebox cookie cake iced with whipped cream and it was delicious. Where did you buy the cookies?

I cannot find the cookies anywhere in Dallas which I find really strange. Where did you buy the ones you used? Were they Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers?
