Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies

Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies

Looking for a good, festive, Christmas cookie. Why not these? I used Brown Eyed Baker’s better-than-brownies recipe for this one, because once again she’s awesome. I just made it more Christmassy. Candy canes make everything more Christmassy right?!

Here’s what you need:

  • 400g dark chocolate
  • 4 tbs butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (I used mini)
  • 1 tsp mint extract
  • 4 crushed candy canes

Here’s what you do:

  1. Heat oven to 350F (160C fan oven). Line cookie sheets.
  2. Melt butter and chocolate over double boiler, stirring occasionally.double boiler
  3. Meanwhile, stir together eggs, vanilla, and sugar. In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients.eggs and sugar
  4. Add chocolate to egg mixture. Add mint extract. Slowly fold in dry ingredients and finally chocolate chips. Batter will be wet, more like brownie batter.flour etc
  5. Scoop out large tablespoon sized dollops of dough, let spread, and top with crushed candy canes.ready to bake
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven when top is is firm. Like brownies, you don’t want to over bake these.
  7. Let cool on baking sheets. Enjoy =)

What’s your favourite Christmas cookies? This one is definitely now competing for my attention =)

      Oh no! I’m glad they at least tasted good. I always use parchment paper on my cookie sheets. Maybe that would help =)
