{Recipe} White Chocolate Peppermint Madeleines

December 15, 2010
While at Costco the other day I found myself (Amy) in the Bakery section, starving (which by the way is not a good combo!!) and saw a box of madeleines sitting there calling my name. Without hesitating I put them in my cart and then had a great idea! I needed (well, wanted) to make a platter of cookies to take to my daughter's school for her 'Happy Birthday Jesus' party. I wanted to try something new, so I thought they would be pretty dipped in white chocolate and sprinkled with peppermint (I must have had my white chocolate peppermint mocha from Starbucks on my mind). So here is what I came up with. This was super easy and they did turn out really pretty! Enjoy!
Vanilla or Chocolate CandiQuick (or any type of meltable chocolate)
Peppermint Candies

If you are local to Southern California, Stater Bros carries this meltable candy in vanilla and chocolate and works well with any type of dipping!

I used half of the candy in the package since I was not making alot of cookies. I placed it in the microwave for 1 minute, stirred with a wooden spoon and re-heated for another 10 seconds. Be careful not to heat to long as it can burn. Another option is placing it in a Crock Pot for serious Holiday baking and dipping!

Here are the Madeleines I found at Costco. You can also bake them from scratch if you have the time, here is a great recipe I found at

Unwrap your candy peppermints and place in a food processor
(The smell is FANTASTIC!!)

Dip your Madeleines half way or completely and place on a cookie sheet lined with some parchment paper. Sprinkle right away with your crushed Peppermint candy and let them dry.

Set them on a pretty tray and you have got one delicious Holiday treat!

  1. Holy goodness those look good! Aw I love that they had a birthday party for Jesus!!


  2. Those look super yummy! I wish I had a food processor that could crush hard candy like that. I put mine in a few layers of plastic baggies and use my rolling pin over it what seems to be a million times.
