a box of Nabisco Famous Wafer cookiesor another thin crisp chocolate cookie
12ozwhite bark coatingI used Kroeger's
1/4tspoil based peppermint extractwater based flavoring can cause the chocolate to seize
1Tbspcoconut oil or shorteningoptional This thins the chocolate and makes for easier melting and dipping.
about 10 peppermint candiesor candy canes, crushed (I used my small food processor)
Cut the white bark coating into small pieces and put in a microwave safe bowl along with the oil or shortening, if using.
Microwave for 1 minute, then remove the bowl and stir. If the chocolate hasn't melted, microwave again in 15 second bursts, stirring in between.
When the chocolate is completely melted, stir in the extract. Note: if your chocolate is thick, add more coconut oil or shortening to thin it down.
Dip the cookies, one at a time, face down into the chocolate. Use a fork to gently flip it over and completely coat it. Lift the cookie out with the fork and tap off any excess coating. Set it down on waxed or parchment paper. Immediately sprinkle with crushed peppermint while the chocolate is wet.
Note: Be gentle when you dip the cookies, they are very fragile. If the chocolate cools down and thickens, gently reheat it.
Allow the cookies to firm up before stacking or packaging.
