Peppermint Patty SURPRISE!

I bought 2 bags of York Peppermint Patties on at Safeway and had NO idea what I was gonna do with them! (They were on SALE.) I Google'd all morning and could only find recipes for BROWNIES with the patties inside. I really don't like baking brownies because they're such a hassle to carry to work SO I decided to be creative! I used a very basic Cocao Cookie recipe and hid the Patty in the middle. They took a while to make since I had to mold the dough around each candy but they turned out SO awesome! They look like normal cookies on the outside but as soon as you bite into them, the Peppermint inside OOZES out...YUM! These cookies were huge too! :)
Ingredients: (24 cookies)

1 c granulated sugar
½ c butter, softened
½ c Baking Cocoa
1 large egg
1½ tsp vanilla extract
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
1½ c all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp granulated sugar
24 York Peppermint Patties (unwrapped)


1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
2. Beat 1 c sugar and butter in large mixer bowl until well mixed. Add cocoa, egg, vanilla extract, baking powder and baking soda; beat until well mixed. Gradually beat in flour.

3. Shape dough around the Peppermint Patties so that it covers the entire candy. Place 2-inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
4. Bale for 15 minutes or until set. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
