I created these melt-in-your-mouth treats for a cookie exchange, and everyone raved about them. My family requests them often, and they're my daughter's favorite cookies. To switch up the flavor, try using different extracts instead of peppermint. -Michelle Kester, Cleveland, Ohio


  • 4 ounces dark chocolate candy coating
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 24 vanilla wafers


  1. Place candy coating and extract in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 30-60 seconds or until smooth, stirring every 15 seconds.
  2. Dip vanilla wafers in coating; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set. Store in an airtight container.
