Here’s What You’ll Need For Easy Rudolph Chocolate Covered Mint Stuffed Cookies! – A Cute and Yummy Dessert
(This should make 18-20 Rudolph Cookies)
- Light Cocoa Chocolate Melts – 12 0z.
- A package of Mint Filled Cookies
- 1 jar of Maraschino Cherries without the stem
- Wax Paper
- Small microwave proof glass bowl
- Silicone spoon or spatula
- Baggie – like a snack baggie
- Paper towel or napkin
- Using the small glass bowl, microwave the chocolate according to the directions on the package – *I usually put mine in the microwave for 1 minute, stir with my silicone spatula and pop it back for 30 seconds. If the chocolate is melted and smooth after your stir it together – you are done. Don’t over cook.
- Place a large spoonful of melted chocolate into a baggie
- Snip a small corner from the bottom of the bag to allow the chocolate to flow out
- Place a sheet of wax paper down and begin drawing antlers with your melted chocolate in the bag
- Make double the amount of antlers as you have cookies – If you make around 40 – you should be good to go
- Let those dry to set up – you can hurry the process by placing them in the freezer for a couple of minutes, but they will probably air dry while you continue the next step
- Place the cherries onto a piece of paper towel
- Now, while the antlers are drying, plop one cookie at a time into the rest of the chocolate
- Use your fork to gently push it down and flip it over – completely covering the cookie
- Pull the cookie up to the side of your bowl with your fork
- Tap the fork on the side of the bowl allowing the excess chocolate to drip into the bowl and smoothing the top of your cookie
- Slide the cookie off of the fork onto more wax paper – *if this is too trick for you, use a toothpick to guide the cookie off
- While your cookie is still wet – insert the dry antlers into the middle section of the cookie
- Add the cherry nose
- That’s it! Do that with each cookie and you’ll have several Cute Rudolph Cookies!
Making Ahead and Storing:
- You can place these in an airtight container and store them for up to a few days, or leave them out on a platter for the day. They should be fine and still yummy. The only part that might dry out a little is the cherry on top.
