Servings 48 small cookies

Ingredients
  

  • 1 c salted butter room temperature
  • ½ c sugar
  • ½ c cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ c flour
  • white chocolate almond bark
  • crushed candy canes or peppermint candies

Instructions
 

  • Using a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Stir in the cocoa powder and flour until combined.
  • Pat the dough into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30-60 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Roll the dough between two sheets of waxed paper to about ¼ inch thickness and use a round cutter (or any shape!) to cut the cookies out. (If the dough seems a bit sticky, sprinkle some flour on it).
  • Place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, or until firm.
  • Let cool for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  • Once the cookies are cool, melt one or two squares of almond bark.
  • When the almond bark is melted, spoon it into a resealable baggie, snip the corner off and drizzle over the cookies.
  • Sprinkle the crushed candies on top and let cool to set up.
