  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In medium bowl, break apart cookie dough. Knead in baking cocoa until thoroughly combined.
  • 2
    Shape dough into 20 (1 1/2-inch) balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheets, and press down slightly with fingers. Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until centers of cookies are set; cool 2 minutes on pans. Transfer to cooling racks to cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, with spatula sprayed with cooking spray, transfer marshmallow creme to microwavable cup sprayed with cooking spray. Microwave uncovered on Medium (50%) 60 to 90 seconds or until melted. Cool slightly, then transfer to resealable food-storage plastic bag.
  • 4
    Cut 1/8 inch from 1 corner of bag, then drizzle cookies with marshmallow creme, and sprinkle with crushed peppermint candies. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes but no longer than 12 hours before serving.

Expert Tips

  • Planning to bring these babies to a cookie exchange? The peppermint protects the marshmallow creme from sticking, but layering between cooking parchment paper or waxed paper will keep them pristine in transit.
  • If hard candy doesn't go over well with the smaller set in your family, make these treats using chopped soft peppermints instead.
