I made these cookies for the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. This was my first time participating and it was so much fun! I loved getting cookies from other wonderful food bloggers! YUM!
One of my all-time favorite Christmas cookies are Peppermint Joe-Joe's from Trader Joe's. We make a special trip over to Atlanta after Thanksgiving just to load up on Peppermint Joe-Joes. They are SOOO good! These cookies reminded me a lot of Peppermint Joe Joe's. The best part is that these cookies are super easy to make! They don't even require an oven!
Let me give you a tip for easily crushing candy canes. Unwrap a box of candy canes, throw them in your food processor and let them go for about 15-20 seconds. You will have finely crushed candy canes for less than a dollar! A word of caution, don't open the lid to the food processor immediately. Give it a minute for all the candy cane dust to settle. Otherwise you will be smelling candy canes for days! :)

Melt chocolate according to package directions. Stir in peppermint oil (it has to be oil if you are using the candy melts).
Dip wafer cookies into chocolate, shake off excess. Place on wax paper and sprinkle with crushed candy canes.
