Semi-Homemade Peppermint Bark Candy Cane Milano Cookies are the easiest semi-homemade treat for spreading Christmas cheer!

Limited edition Candy Cane Milanos are enrobed in smooth chocolate and crushed peppermint for an extra decadent treat.

When I saw the limited edition Candy Cane Milanos, I knew that I needed a bag. I also knew that I couldn’t leave well enough alone and needed to put my own festive touch on them. The cookies are delicious on their own, but a quick dip in chocolate and peppermint really brings out the red filling for a beautiful addition to a cookie tray or tin. If you can’t find the limited edition cookies, don’t fret, just add a teaspoon of peppermint extract to your melted chocolate for that extra punch of peppermint.
