holiday mint milano cookies

In continuing with our peppermint theme today, here’s a super cute – and FAST – little holiday treat that you can whip up in no time. And not to worry –  they’re also super YUMMY! (Yes, we definitely taste-tested these little guys!)

You’ll Need:

1. Melt the Candy Melts in a microwave according to package directions. (Takes about 1-3 mins, depending on quantity).

2. Dip Milano Cookies into melted candy mixture, covering about 1/2 of the cookie.

3. Sprinkle both sides of the cookie with crushed candy canes, and let dry for 10-15 minutes. DONE!

And there you have it…super quick & easy, but still festive and cute for the holidays.

From this side angle they actually look little slippers, which makes me think there could be a good variation of these to be dreamed up for spa-themed bridal showers!

    It’s a random question, but where did you get the bowls you put the melts in? I’ve been needing something like those!

    This is adorable! I’m not one for peppermint, but I’d love to try this using sprinkles instead! Thanks so much!

    Hi Brittanie –
    The small white bowls are actually from IKEA :)

    Thank you so much for the idea! I made three bags of these last night with a friend. We used dark and white chocolate as that is what we had on hand. For toppings we used coconut, perils, nuts and crushed candy canes!
