In honor of Peppermint Patty and the new Peanuts Movie hitting theaters today, I’ve created these delicious Peppermint Pattie Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies.
These Peppermint Pattie Stuffed Chocolate Chip were a huge hit in my house, but that’s an understatement. Plus they were so stinkin’ easy that you will be kickin’ yourself that you didn’t think of it before.
In fact, these are so easy that I probably shouldn’t even call this a recipe. However, they didn’t work the first time I made them so I adjusted somethings in my method and then they came out perfectly.
I’m not big on step by step photos, but I thought they looked cute all lined up and snapped it with my iPhone late one night to show y’all.
You can use mini York Peppermint Patties, Jr Mints, or similar. I always have a stock pile of Jr Mints in the house (they are dairy free, so I keep them around). However, this recipe as show is not allergy friendly, but could totally be adapted to be.
I kid you not…I made these cookies while the kids were in school one day and they were devoured be bedtime. Not a single crumb remained.
- 1 package refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
- 1 box of Junior Mints (the $1 size at Walmart is perfect)
- Preheat oven according to directions on cookie dough package.
- Divide cookie dough into 24 equal parts (I buy the dough that's already individually portioned). Place 12 dough balls on a rimmed baking sheet that's been sprayed with non-stick cookie spray.
- Place one Jr. Mint in the center of each cookie dough part. Add a second cookie dough ball on top of the Jr. Mint. Gently press the two cookie dough balls together, sealing the Jr. Mint inside the cookie dough pieces. Make sure it's completely sealed in all around otherwise it will ooze out while baking. (Don't be tempted to add more mints...they won't stay inside while cooking....one seems to be the perfect number.)
- Bake for 12-15 minutes or until cookies are lightly golden brown. Remove from oven to cool.
- Once cookies are cooled, place the remaining Jr Mints in a small glass bowl. Microwave for about 30 seconds to melt the mints. Stir well to combine chocolate and gooey minty stuff that melted. Drizzle melted Jr Mints over cookies.
