Sometimes the best recipes are a mashup of other great ideas. Like this Double Chocolate Peppermint Pattie Cookies recipe, which creates a delightful dessert that's half cookie, half YORK Peppermint Pattie!
Beat butter and sugar in large mixing bowl; add egg, milk and vanilla, blending thoroughly. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Add to butter mixture, blending well. Stir in chocolate chips. Refrigerate dough about 1 hour or until firm enough to handle. (Dough will be a little soft.)
Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease. Remove wrappers from peppermint patties.
Roll dough into 1-1/4 inch balls. For each cookie flatten ball slightly; press peppermint pattie into dough. Mold dough around pattie so that it is completely covered. Place on prepared cookie sheet. Using knife edge gently press star design into surface of each cookie. (If chocolate coating of pattie is broken the center fondant will melt out during baking.) Sprinkle with decorator's sugar, if desired.
Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until cookie is set; sprinkle with additional sugar, if desired. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
Try colored sprinkles in place of decorator's sugar for extra color.
YORK Snack Size Peppermint Patties (6-oz. each) may also be used. Roll dough into 1-3/4 inch balls and flatten to 3-1/2 inch circle. Follow above directions for shaping; bake 14 minutes or until set. Makes 17 (3-1/4 inch) cookies.
