Dark Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies

Prep Time: 1 hour 30 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes



Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup Dutch processed cocoa (sifted)
  • 1 tbsp baking soda
  • 1 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp peppermint extract* (optional)
  • 1 bag of white candy melts or white chocolate (melted)
  • Crushed candy canes

Instructions:

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powders, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter and sugars on med-high until light and fluffy (approx. 2-3mins). Reduce speed and add egg and peppermint extract. Beat until well combined. Add flour mixture and mix until just combined.
  3. Chill dough for at least 1 hour or overnight.
  4. Preheat oven to 350°F and line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.
  5. Using a medium cookie scoop, portion dough onto baking sheet (I did 9 cookies per sheet). Bake for approximately 10 mins, or until the middle is set. Cookies will deflate and crinkle a bit upon cooling.
  6. Cool on pans for 5 mins then transfer to to a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Dip in melted candy melts or white chocolate, place on a parchment lined baking sheet and sprinkle with crushed candy canes. Allow to set.
