  1. Basic Sugar Cookie Dough (link to recipe at top of page)
  2. ½ teaspoon peppermint extract
  3. ½ (16-ounce) package vanilla-flavored candy coating
  4. ½ (16-ounce) package chocolate-flavored candy coating
  5. 2 cups crushed peppermint candies
  1. Prepare Basic Sugar Cookie Dough according to directions through Step 4; add peppermint extract with vanilla in Step 2.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to ¼-inch thickness. Using a ruler and a pizza cutter, cut dough into 1-inch strips. Cut strips into 3-inch pieces. Repeat with scraps, rerolling dough no more than twice. Bake and let cool as directed in Step 6.
  3. Melt candy coating according to package directions. Dip one corner of half of cookies into vanilla-flavored candy coating. Dip one corner of remaining cookies into chocolate-flavored candy coating. Immediately sprinkle with peppermint; place cookies on parchment paper to dry, approximately 30 minutes. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
  1. Don't dip too many Peppermint Bars in candy coating at one time. The candy coating will dry before you are able to sprinkle with peppermints.
