Candy Cane (Cookies)

In general I'm not crazy about candy canes. However, there is an exception...I love these chocolate peppermint cookies we've been making the last couple years, and candy canes are an essential ingredient for them. They're actually copy-cat cookies based on Lands' End cookies we got once. As tasty as those L.E. cookies were, we wondered if there was a way to make them ourselves and save some money. It turns out they're a really easy cookie to make. Our "recipe" doesn't even require baking...all you need is some simple chocolate wafer cookies, some white "melties," a few drops of peppermint oil and crushed candy canes. Dip those wafers in the white peppermint coating, sprinkle with the candy canes, and let them set. Voila! the easiest Christmas cookie you could ask for.
