Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2
    In large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter, egg, food color and 2 teaspoons of the peppermint extract until soft dough forms. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheet.
  • 3
    Bake 8 to 11 minutes or until barely golden around edges. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely.
  • 4
    In medium bowl, mix frosting and remaining 1 teaspoon peppermint extract. For each sandwich cookie, spread desired amount of frosting on bottom of 1 cookie. Top with second cookie, bottom side down; gently press together.
  • 5
    In small microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips uncovered on High about 1 minute, stirring once, until melted. If necessary, continue to microwave in 15-second increments, stirring until smooth. Dip each sandwich cookie halfway into melted chocolate; decorate with sprinkles. Place on cooking parchment paper; let stand until set.
