These are soooo good! They take a lot longer than the recipe indicates, though. About halfway through rolling the filling into balls, I had a lightbulb moment; I tried rolling the filling out and cut out circles a little smaller than the cookies, then pressed them on. Worked perfectly and much faster! For the chocolate topping I used a mix of semi-sweet and milk chocolate and added a bit of peppermint extract.
Wonderful treats, perfect for gift bags. I added a bit of red food coloring to make the peppermint filling pink; it adds a nice bit of color to the treats.
