YUMMY! YUMMY! YUMMY! VERY CHOCOLATY! Pricey with all the chocolate in them, but a definate item for special occasions. WARNING: Do not eat these cookies after 4pm or they will keep you awake all night. I deleted the peppermint flavoring - the candy canes were enough. I had to add more powdered sugar to make the frosting thick enough to roll in the candy cane; otherwise, runny mess. Also, dries out quickly. Best eaten within 24-48 hours.

The powdered sugar filling was a mess. It was way too thin. I tried thickening it up by adding a lot more powdered sugar, but that took away from the peppermint taste. Now it tasted like a powdered sugar filling. Even after I added more sugar, I still could not roll the cookies in the peppermint candy. It was a sticky mess. I ended up throwing the filling away and eating the cookies plain.

The cookies were great - I used a rounded teaspoon rather than Tablespoon - otherwise the cookies were too big for my preference. I added 1 stick of butter to the icing recipe which made it a peppermint butter cream icing/frosting...not sure if they meant it to be this and forgot the ingredient or if they just went the route of an icing that I normally use to decorate sugar cookies. If the latter - don't see how you can get volume to then roll the cookie in candy cane.

As everyone has said, the frosting runs everywhere. I ended up drizzling the frosting on top of the cookies because it is impossible to make sandwiches. They taste great, but not too different from a brownie...
