"I saw a version of this posted on the Great American Spice Company's Facebook page. They gave a vague description of what they did. I ran to the store and bought the ingredients to try my own version. While they used store bought ingredients for ease, I recommend at least mixing up your own frosting. This recipe can be adapted for any holiday using different flavor combinations and coloring the frosting with different colors. I used Immaculate brand dark chocolate cookie dough, which comes in packages of 12 squares of dough, split each in half, then rolled into the 24 mini balls."

Step 1

Grease a 24 slot mini muffin tin and preheat oven to whatever temperature the cookie recipe you are using suggests, in my case this was 325 F.

Step 2

Place a small roll of cookie dough into each muffin tin well and press gently with your fingers to form a cup; bake according to the instructions for your cookie dough, which for me was about 12 minutes.

Step 3

Let cookie cups cool in the pans briefly, then remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Step 4

Mix peppermint and food coloring into your vanilla frosting to create a light mint green color and minty taste, adding as much or as little as you prefer.

Step 5

Using a piping bag (or a filled zip-top baggie with one end snipped off), fill each cooled cookie with a swirl of frosting.

Step 6

Sprinkle each with some crushed peppermint candies to taste.
