Candy Cane Mint Milanos

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:
Pepperidge Farm Mint Milano Cookies
Red Candy Melts (available at Michaels)
Round Peppermint Candies (or candy canes), crushed

Candy Cane Mint Milanos

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!

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!
