crushed peppermints

Directions: Combine egg and butter in a large bowl. Mix until combined. Pour in devil’s food cake and mix until the batter is smooth (about 2 minutes). Roll dough into a ball and push flat onto a lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 6-8 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack and allow cookies to completely cool. For frosting: Mix together butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and peppermint extract, until fluffy.

Peppermint oreo recipe Frost one cookie on the BOTTOM and then sandwich another cookie on top. I like to use a lot of frosting (make sure it’s coming out the sides). Then dip the sides of the cookie into crushed peppermints.

Peppermint Oreo Gift To turn these into a fun gift I found these jars/vases at the Dollar Tree. I layered my cookies in the jar and then placed a coffee filter on top.

I added a glue dot to hold down the coffee filter. Then I tied a ribbon on top and it was ready to go!
