  • Shape dough into 20 (1 1/2-inch) balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheets, and press down slightly with fingers. Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until centers of cookies are set; cool 2 minutes on pans. Transfer to cooling racks to cool completely, about 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, with spatula sprayed with cooking spray, transfer marshmallow creme to microwavable cup sprayed with cooking spray. Microwave uncovered on Medium (50%) 60 to 90 seconds or until melted. Cool slightly, then transfer to resealable food-storage plastic bag.

  • Cut 1/8 inch from 1 corner of bag, then drizzle cookies with marshmallow creme, and sprinkle with crushed peppermint candies. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes but no longer than 12 hours before serving.

Pretty basic recipe. A quick easy one just about anyone can make. I needed a quick fix and this worked. I did make a couple alterations. But I base my rating on the original recipe as it should be. They taste like just the right amount of chocolate but ultimately end up pretty flat if you smash them down some like you're told to. My only changes were that I added crushed soft peppermints to the cookie mix and made these into sandwich cookies like a whoopie pie I then rolled the sides in crushed soft peppermints as well for an extra kick. I wanted them to be more stackable so I couldn't have the marshmallow on top for them to stick together. Read More
