HOLIDAY RECIPE // DARK CHOCOLATE CANDY CANE COOKIES

MICHMILLA // DARK CHOCOLATE CANDY CANE COOKIES

What better way to start off December & the Christmas season than with a delicious cookie recipe? I don’t know about you but this time of year (besides Halloween, of course!) really brings out my sweet tooth. I especially have a weakness for these dark chocolate peppermint cookies that I’m about to share with you all. They’re soft, not too sweet, & have that perfect touch of peppermint to get you into the Christmas spirit!

MICHMILLA // DARK CHOCOLATE CANDY CANE COOKIES

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 salt
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 bar of Hershey’s Candy Cane chocolate (you can add more if you’d like)
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the sugar, brown sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla together.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa, flour, salt, and baking soda.
  4. Gradually add your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients. Make sure to mix until incorporated.
  5. Fold in the white chocolate chips into the mixture.
  6. With a cookie scoop (or you can roll the dough in your hands), place the dough on a cookie sheet.
  7. Smash up the Hershey’s Candy Cane chocolate into little pieces and press a few pieces on to the dough.
  8. Bake for 15 minutes. Do not overbake or else they won’t be soft. Take them out of the oven even if they don’t look ready.
  9. Let cool for 5 minutes & enjoy!
*NOTES:
  • This recipe should yield 15-32 cookies depending on the size you scoop/roll the dough.
  • Make sure the butter is at room temperature. This will help with the softness.
  • If the dough seems a little wet, add a little bit more flour.
