Candy cane chocolate cookies 

You’re going to need:                                      

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder (sifted)
  • 1/4 cup black cocoa (sifted)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)

  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract (optional)
  • 1 bag Bright White Candy Melts or white chocolate (melted)
  • Crushed candy canes

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together your flour, cocoa powders, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat butter and sugars on med-high until light and fluffy. 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.
  5. Using a spoon or an ice cream scoop, portion dough onto baking sheet. Bake for approximately 10 mins, or until the middle is set.
