Easy Starlight Candy Cookies – Happy New Year!

Happy Holidays! In this hectic season, I thought it might be nice to take a break from my interior design blog to share something different with you. Always on a quest for easy cookie recipes, my girlfriend sent this to me. The best part is that there’s no baking! And her kids love to help with the candy crushing.

Let me know what you think…and please feel free to share your easy cookie recipes with me!


  • 2 packages Famous chocolate wafer cookies
  • 2 16 oz. cans vanilla frosting
  • 1 1/2 packages Starlight peppermint candies


Remove wrappers from the candies and place in a resealable plastic bag (be sure to remove as much air as possible from the bag before closing). Use a mallet to crush the candies into a powder (it’s OK to leave some of the candy in small chunks).

Spoon the contents of both cans of the vanilla frosting into a mixing bowl.  Pour the candy over the frosting and mix thoroughly.
Spread about one tablespoon of the candy mixture onto one chocolate wafer cookie. Cover that with another cookie to form a sandwich.

Place cookies in a plastic container and refrigerate overnight.

Makes about 24 cookies.
