Easy No-Bake Peppermint Dipped Cookies
Do you have a favorite cookie? One that you absolutely love and could probably eat the entire batch if you’re left alone with them? Besides loving the classic chocolate chip cookie, I’ve always loved no-bake cookies.
These Easy No-Bake Peppermint Dipped Cookies are incredibly simple to make and delicious. Most of us during the holiday are strapped for time. That’s all the more reason to give them a spin this season. I will not lie if you can melt chocolate. You are already at an expert level when it comes to this recipe. Seriously, this is as hard as it gets.
One thing that I love about these cookies is how easy they are to make. You can prepare a batch of these in about 15-20 minutes, then all you have to do is wait for them to cool.
Candy Canes, Chocolate Melts and Mint Fudge Cookies, OH MY!
But hold on, before we get started, let me tell you what you’re going to need — there are only 3 things, but you’ve got to get these particular 3 things: a box of Keebler Grasshopper Mint Fudge Cookies of Wiltons White Chocolate Candy Dips, and Candy Canes. That is right, three store-bought items. Easy peasy.
These Easy No-Bake Peppermint Dipped Cookies would be perfect for your holiday cookie exchange, after a big holiday meal, or leave a plate for Santa and his elves. This is a great holiday cookie you can make every year with the kids. Imagination is all that’s required and you will make memories for a lifetime.
And best of all, the combination of chocolate and peppermint is a no-fail flavor combination. It’s like peppermint bark in cookie form and just as addictive.
If you weren’t planning on baking this year but still want to give friends and family a gift from your kitchen, these No-Bake Peppermint Dipped Cookies are just for you.
Let’s Get Started
To make these No-Bake Peppermint-dipped Cookies, I used store-bought Chocolate Melts and just threw them in the microwave for about a minute. Then we dipped the grasshopper mint and fudge cookies in the melted chocolate to coat. Sprinkle with the crushed candy canes and allow them to cool on a wire rack. Does it get any easier than that?
What you will need to make
- Keebler Grasshopper Cookies
- Candy Canes or Peppermints (1 box of 12 candy canes)
- White Candy Melts
How to make your cookies
Place your peppermints or candy canes (you will need about 12 candy canes for a whole package of cookies) in a large plastic storage bag. Roll them with a rolling pin until they’re crushed. Or handing the kids a few fun kitchen gadgets to crush them. Once pulverized, place them in a bowl for later.
In a medium-sized bowl, melt the candy melts in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each cook session, until smooth. Once the candy melts are smooth, dip the grasshopper cookies about halfway into the melts (be fast, so the chocolate from the cookies doesn’t mix into the white candy melts).
Immediately dip them into the bowl of crushed peppermint, covering the candy melts, and set them on wax paper. Then allow to cool for 30 minutes before serving. This will allow them enough time for the melted chocolate to harden.
Don’t they look beautiful? Almost as if you slaved over a hot stove all day. SHHHH, I won’t say a word. Your secret is safe with me.
How to store your cookies
These peppermint and chocolate-coated cookies will stay freshly in an airtight container at room temperature for 5 days or in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. You can also freeze for up to 3 months.
