Chocolate Peppermint Drops

These are similar to the peppermint bon bons.

Chocolate Peppermint Drops
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups flour
3/4 cup milk
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 cup peppermint chocolate flakes (I used left over Williams Sonoma Peppermint Hot Chocolate)
White chocolate melted with crushed pepper mint candies 

Preheat oven to 350. Line baking pans with parchment paper

Cream butter with brown sugar till light and fluffy. 
Add the egg and vanilla
Whisk together flour, baking soda and peppermint chocolate flakes
Add flour mixed to creamed mixture. Beat till just combined. 
Add the melted chocolate
Use the smaller medium scoop, drop onto parchment lined baking sheets. 

Occasionally, clean the scoop, it makes it easier. They cookie dough is a little sticky. 
Bake 10 to 12 minutes
Drizzle with the white chocolate and peppermint candy mixture. You can add a little cream to the chocolate to make it easier to drizzle. 

Makes 2 1/2 dozen
