Instructions

PREHEAT oven to 375° F

SCOOP cookie dough 1 ¼” size- if dough is stiff and cool enough, you can roll into balls. Makes about 24 cups.

BAKE 9-11 minutes, or roughly until edges are set. Place pans on wire racks to cool. Using the back of a measuring teaspoon while warm, make a well in the center of each cookie cup. Cool completely; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

While cookie cups are baking:

BREAK OFF curved end of each candy cane using a sharp knife to make a handle for cookie cups. Place several of the remaining peppermint sticks in a plastic bag and use the bottom of a heavy cup to gently crush into small pieces for topping the cookie cups.

COMBINE 2 cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels and content of can of Sweetened Condensed Milk in a medium microwave safe bowl. Microwave on High for 1 minute. Stir until morsels are completely melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in 1 tsp. vanilla extract. Cool mixture slightly, then place mixture into a heavy duty plastic zip-style bag.

SNIP a small piece off the corner of the bag and squeeze chocolate mixture into each cookie cup, mounding slightly. Two small spoons can be used to put the filling into the cups.

WORKING QUICKLY , place Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels and small pieces of peppermint candy on top of each cookie cup pressing lightly into chocolate (OPTIONAL: add miniature marshmallows!).
