""these are gonna get made for sure-I'll report after I make the dough and bake off a couple". gotta get some candy canes first??I'm a dough freezer! like to make the dough and bake off later so they're always ultra fresh??Kim, I collect many colors and varieties of sprinkles and I'm with you-think I'll add red&green sprinkles as well as red&green decorator sugar to make extra pretty&festive for Christmas cookie trays- they all get sent to our kids& loved ones"
"I made these as directed and they tasted great! My husband and son are not huge fans of peppermint so I may try these without the candy canes next time. The chocolate is very rich and "brownie" like so I think they would taste great with or without the peppermint."
"I added red and green sprinkles to the top, as well. Very pretty and easy to make."
"These are delicious! I added 1/4 tsp peppermint extract to give them more of a mint-chocolate taste. The dough was really sticky so I was concerned at first but they turned out great."
"Actually, I made these cookies DOUBLE Chocolate, rather than Triple Chocolate!I'd used the balance of chocolate candy wafer disks: About 1 to 1-1/2 cups) combined with 1 Tbsp. of vegetable shortening and melted it in a double boiler over boiling water until melted and smooth.I used: 1/2 cup butter and 1/4 cup margarine to stretch my butter supply! I also added 1 tsp. vanilla extract to the creamed mixture. I used 1/2 tsp. each of baking soda and salt. I crushed about 1 dozen REGULAR-SIZED candy canes in my food processor until finely chopped. I greased baking sheets used and baked cookies 8 minutes. I used one of those round plastic cookie disks with designs on them, greased and dipped in flour to flatten the balls of dough before I baked the cookies. I topped the baked, cooled cookies with some of the melted chocolate, then sprinkled some crushed candy canes over the chocolate and allowed the cookies to set. I'd gotten at least 4 dozen to 49 cookies with this recipe! This is a wonderful recipe for the holidays! Thank you so much for sharing! These cookies looked very festive! delowenstein"
