Christmas Cookie Cutter Treats

Here's what you'll need:

A Sheet Pan lined with Silpat or Parchment Paper.

Decorative Holiday Cellophane Gift Bags and Ties.

Instructions:

Prepare Melted Chocolate in a Double Boiler or Bain Marie.

Arrange the Cookie Cutters on the Sheet Pan that has been lined with either

Fill each Cookie Cutter about 1/2 full.
Tap gently across the top of the cookie cutter with a wooden spoon to smooth out the chocolate.
Sprinkle with Peppermint Chips.

  2. I just thought it might be interesting to bake cookies and then place these treats on top of warm cookies so they melt in and form a topping....
