Peppermint Pattie Fudge Cookies. These are hands down, my new favorite cookies!
These cookies are super thick, fudgy and have so much peppermint pattie flavor. If you are like me, you probably hoard these things. Peppermint patties are my weakness. Well, pretty much anything with a chocolate and mint combo will win me over and steal my heart. Ever since I made my Peppermint Pattie Brownies, I’ve been hooked on trying to create new things that that include or taste like my beloved peppermint patties.
I made these cookies as a test run when I made my Thick, Chocolate Fudge Almond Joy Cookies. I wasn’t sure how they were going to come out if I just slapped some peppermint pattie chunks on top of them, but let me tell you, these are my greatest creation yet!!
These cookies are so simple. You just get the dough together and let it chill a bit in the fridge. Then, when you are ready to put them in the oven, roll them into balls and press down a bit because these cookies pretty much hold the shape that you make them. Once they are the shape you’d like, cut up a peppermint pattie. I cut mine into 6 triangles, once down the middle then across and again diagonally each way. Using one peppermint pattie candy for each cookie, press the little triangles into the cookie. I pressed one on top, then the rest on the sides. No need to be neat here, just press them on where you want them. When they are done baking, they will have slightly melted off a bit on the baking sheet, but you just have to do a little bit of clean up around the cookies and it breaks right off. It is gooey, melty peppermint heaven in a cookie.
The chocolate pudding in these cookies keeps them so chewy and supple. They are almost fudge-like. I really can not say enough good things about these cookies except for, if you are chocolate/mint obsessed like I am, you absolutely need to make these right now! And trust me, you will not be able to stop eating these.
