These are so simple and so yummy. I am not sure where I got the idea, on a website several years ago, I think.
Here's what you need:
- container of plain old white frosting
- peppermint extract (optional)
- bag of peppermint candies (like these)
- package of chocolate wafer cookies (Nabisco brand "Famous Wafers" -- see here)
Then carefully open the package of cookies (they break easily) and spread about a heaping tablespoon-full of the mixture onto the flat side of one wafer. Gently press another wafer (flat side to the frosting) onto the top. Place the cookie into a air-tight container -- when you have all the cookies made put them into the refrigerator for an hour or two to set up. Keep in the fridge, they taste best cold.
Oh, you will have leftover frosting. I'm sure you can think of something to do with it.
