    If using chocolate bars, chop the chocolate into pieces. Melt the dark chocolate in a bowl set over a pot with simmering water. Add the remaining peppermint oil drop by drop to taste, stirring thoroughly after each drop. Dip the cooled cookies into the chocolate completely, and let drip for a few seconds. Lay onto a piece of parchment paper or a cooling rack. Melt white chocolate. Use a fork to drizzle it over the cookies. Store in the fridge, and enjoy cold!
