Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with foil, extending the foil over edges of pan; set aside.
In a large bowl stir together cookie dough and peppermint extract until combined. Press dough onto the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
Sprinkle warm uncut bars with white baking pieces; let stand for 5 minutes. Spread softened baking pieces evenly over uncut bars. Cool in pan on a wire rack.
In a small saucepan bring whipping cream just to boiling over medium-high heat. Remove from heat. Add semisweet chocolate (do not stir). Let stand for 5 minutes. Stir until smooth. Cool for 15 minutes. Pour chocolate mixture over cooled uncut bars, spreading evenly. Sprinkle with crushed candies. Chill about 1 hour or until set. Using the edges of the foil, lift uncut bars out of pan. Cut into bars and enjoy!
