Every year, my boss buys me peppermint bark which is a layer of white chocolate, a layer of dark chocolate and crushed candy canes.  Its wonderful, but expensive and I don't want to make the trip to the mall to get it before our christmas party, so I made a quick version with sugar cookies.

Ingredients...

1/2 bag chocolate chips ( I imagine melted chocolate icing would work too)
1 box candy canes, crushed
2 tubes refrigerated sugar cookie dough, sliced and baked according to package directions

In a double boiler, melt your chocolate chips.  This is the hardest part.  I do it in a very unsafe way... a metal mixing bowl over water in a sauce pan.  Doesn't really fit, but it does the job.  Do this at your own risk.  You could microwave the chips, but I find the double boiler works better.

Once your chips are melted, quickly spoon onto cooled (and already baked) sugar cookies and spread with a spoon or knife.  Sprinkle with crushed candy canes as you icing each cookie, so the candy canes set in the chocolate. 

Place on a cookie tray covered in wax paper (for easy clean up) and put in the freezer until chocolate is set.    If you stack them in a tin, you should probably put wax paper between layers, otherwise they will stick.

Enjoy!

I was looking for just one more cookie recipe to make for an upcoming Christmas party.  This one is it.  I will make the sugar cookies from scratch, that will be my only variation.  Thanks for posting this.

I was going to do that originally, but I got lazy.  I think it would look very cute rolled out and cut with cookie cutters in xmas shapes

these do sound delicious, and easy. i think i'll add this one to my list of cookies to bake for gifts. i'm also making chocolate covered cherry cookies, which are easy and sooo good. these two sound like they'll go well together.

Are there cherry bits in there, or are they cherry flavored?  It sounds good either way!

they're a chocolate cookie base with a cherry pressed into the center (in a little bed of chocolate so it sticks) and chocolate drizzled over it. they're so good. here's a recipe if you are interested!
