                                                      CHOCOLATE PEPPERMINT PUFF PASTRY

 
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 10 ounces milk chocolate candy coating, coarsely chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups crushed peppermint candies

Directions

  • Unfold pastry sheet onto a lightly floured surface. Cut into 4-in. x 1/2-in. strips. Place on greased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  • In a microwave, melt candy coating; stir until smooth. Dip each cookie halfway, allowing excess to drip off. Sprinkle with crushed candies. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set. Store in an airtight container. Yield: about 3 dozen.

Trying to imagine if the puff pastry would bake up strong enough. I'm guessing it does or the recipe wouldn't have been published!

Verlee I have to agree with you.  I also wonder at the strength of the puff pastry being able to withstand dipping and then a roll in crushed candy.
Might be good if the chocolate were the mint chocolate that would avoid the roll in the candy or since we know the starlight mints melt maybe putting some on the raw dough then baking. 
Will be interesting to find out if anyone has made these.
