Double Chocolate Cookies with Peppermint Patty Surprise

Christmastime! Too many delicious recipes I want to make. So when asked to make cookies...I made two kinds instead of one. Because I'm obsessed with trying new things. It's an addiction. I might need to see a counselor. Plus I'm getting fat. Hmm...better figure this thing out.
This was one of those cookie recipes. So awesome. I absolutely love chocolate and mint together, and this was a perfect cookies. My mom went out the next day and bought more patties so I'd make another batch!

Double Chocolate Cookies with Peppermint Patty Surprise
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 sticks (6 ounces) unsalted butter, slightly softened
1 egg
24 peppermint patties, unwrapped and chilled
6 ounces white chocolate chips

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat together flour through baking soda on low speed. Then beat in the butter and egg.
Turn out the dough onto a large piece of plastic wrap and flatten into a disk; seal. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Working with approximately 1 tablespoon of dough at a time, use your fingers to evenly encase each of the peppermint patties with the dough.
Place on the prapared pans and smooth the dough with your fingers, if needed.
Bake until just firm to the touch, about 15 minutes. Remove the pans from the oven and let cool slightly. Transfer the cookies on the parchment to a rack to cool completely.
In a small bowl, microwave white chocolate chips on high in 30-second bursts until it is creamy and completely smooth when stirred.
Using a large spoon, drizzle the white chocolate over the cookies. Let cool completely before serving or storing.
