Peppermint Mocha Sandwich Cookies

A must bake for christmas. Try this simple Peppermint Mocha Sandwich Cookies Recipe

The past couple weeks have been so busy with deals, black friday, cyber monday, and crazy in between. I haven’t had time to make any new recipes but I truly missed it.  I love getting in the kitchen and getting my creativity going.

I decided I needed a new cookie for my holiday trays this year, but something simple. These Peppermint Mocha Sandwich Cookies use a red velvet cake mix. How is that for easy?!

The cookies themselves are seriously a red velvet cake mix, 2 eggs, and 1/2 cup veg oil.  Beat it together and drop it by spoonfuls onto a parchment lined baking sheet.  I gave mine a little pat down to flatten them a little before I popped them in a 350 degree oven for 8-10 mins.

By the way….if you don’t have a cookie scoop yet you need one! They make baking cookies 100 times easier

My cookies came out smelling and looking delicious. While they cooled I whipped up a simple peppermint filling. It just takes a minute.

Once the cookies are cool you are going to pipe the filling onto one of the cookies. I just used a ziploc bag, filled it with the icing, and then cut the tip off. Once the filling is on the cookie, I just topped it with the other.

Last but not least I crushed some candy canes and sprinkled them around the edges of the icing. Don’t these look so festive?! OH MY….and they are magically disappearing off of my cake plate as we speak.
