Crumbl Chocolate Ft. York Mint Stuffed Copycat Cookies

Yesterday, we introduced you to the Chocolate Mint Surprise Cookies unbeknownst to the fact that Crumbl had just launched their newest chocolate mint cookie called Crumbl Chocolate Ft. York Cookie the same morning. Our mint cookie was different. Ours was layered instead of stuffed and the peppermint layer was homemade. Plus, the chocolate based cookie was a bit more crunchy (like a candy) than a Crumbl cookie.

As soon as we saw the new Crumbl cookie, we knew we had to explore that one too. You know our obsession with Crumbl.

If you want to check out some of the other copycat cookie flavors, may we suggest you start with these:  Crumbl Dirt Cake CookiesMuddy Buddies, Mini TwixPink Confetti Cake CookiesGalaxy Brownie CookiesChocolate Cake CookiesCookies and Cream Milkshake Cookies or the Churro Cookies

We spent last night perfecting what we think is an easy, copycat recipe of the Crumbl Chocolate Ft. York Cookie. It’s a soft, dark chocolate base with a Mini York Peppermint Patty inside and topped with a chocolate layer and half of a Mini York. It’s delicious, easy and a perfect copycat!

HOMEMADE PEPPERMINT CREAM OR YORK PEPPERMINT PATTY MINI?

Yesterday, we did a homemade peppermint cream with the Chocolate Mint Surprise Cookies. For these Crumbl Mini cookies, we opted for the easy route of using a York Peppermint Patty Mini. Why?

  1. It’s quicker and easier.
  2. It’s a no brainer because it’s a no-fail option because York has already perfected the peppermint patty so there was no reason to re-create the wheel, so to speak.

Yes, you can make your own peppermint cream inside but we actually prefer the York Minis with this recipe.

MINI CRUMBL IS THE PERFECT SIZE

Yes, Crumbl is known for their GIANT cookies. They are so big, in fact, they list them as 3.5-6.5 servings in their stores. What kind of monster eats 1/6 of a cookie?? I like my own perfectly round, un-touched cookie so mini cookies are right up my alley.

That’s right, we are so in love with our MINI Crumbl size that we made this week’s Chocolate Ft. York Cookies mini as well!

This cookie recipe makes 24 cookies because I recommend making them MUCH smaller than Crumbl would. Instead of a “shareable cookie”, this is a bite-sized cookie that you won’t feel so guilty eating. Three or four bites and it’s gone. Have two or three, no one is judging! I would assume Crumbl uses at least 1/4 of a cup of cookie dough for each cookie and I suggest just about 1 tablespoons in order to make them a more manageable size.

If you prefer GIANT cookies, make only 10-12 cookies with this recipe (NOTE: Use the bigger York Peppermint Patties though!) and they will be GIANT!! If you prefer smaller cookies, make 24 with the dough. So, you do you.

TO CHILL OR NOT TO CHILL?

That is the question! I’m not talking about the cookie dough because no chilling is necessary for the dough but how do you serve them? Chilled or warm?

I’m going to cut to the chase, while other Crumbl cookie versions are better warm, these Chocolate Mint Cookies need to be served CHILLED. Even Crumbl sells them chilled.

I have also found that all the Crumbl recipes stay fresh longer if you keep them in the refrigerator. No matter what air-tight container you keep the cookies in, they don’t stay fresh as long out on the counter as they do if you put them in the fridge. So, the moral of the story is STORE THESE COOKIES IN THE FRIDGE. Sure, you can eat them cold or let them come to room temperature but you’ll thank me when you still have fresh cookies 3-4 days later.

CRUMBL CHOCOLATE FT. YORK COOKIES INGREDIENTS

York Mint Cookies Ingredients
  • Butter – salted or unsalted will work.
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Brown Sugar – dark or light brown sugar will work
  • Egg
  • Vanilla Extract – use the REAL extract and not the imitation
  • Flour – all-purpose works best
  • Baking Soda
  • Salt
  • York Peppermint Patty Minis
  • Chocolate Chips – this is for the ganache so use semi-sweet or dark (whatever you prefer)
  • Heavy Cream

HOW TO MAKE CHOCOLATE FT. YORK COOKIES

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Use parchment paper or a silpat mat to line a baking sheet. 

2. Cream the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in a stand mixer until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes). Scrape the sides of the bowl to make sure all ingredients are blended.

3. Add in the egg and vanilla and beat until combined.

4. Add in flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda. Mix until all combined.

Stuffed Mint Cookie Steps

5. Scoop out 24 equal cookie dough balls (they should be 1 TBSP of dough – I recommend a 1 TBSP cookie scoop). Press a York Mini in the center of each cookie dough ball. Wrap the cookie dough around the York Mini and roll it in your hands to seal it.

7. While the cookies are cooling, melt the semi-sweet (or dark) chocolate chips and the heavy cream in a small bowl in the microwave. Heat for 30 seconds at a time but stir in between each increment as not to burn the chocolate. Top each cookie with a spoonful of chocolate ganache and spread carefully. Top with a half of a York Mini.
