At Christmas Time, you really can add candy canes to almost any recipe to make it a little more festive.

Well.. atleast I think so!

I made these little gems for Christmas Day and they got rave reviews from everyone.

Go and get your hands on some discounted candy canes and give them a go - it's not too late to appreciate a Christmas Cookie.

Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies


1 c. plain flour
1/3 c. unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. sugar
1/3 c. butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 large egg
1/4 c. mini chocolate chips
1/2 c. crushed candy canes

Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl and whisk until combined and any lumps are broken up.
In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar together using a mixer on high speed. 
Add vanilla and egg and beat until combined. 
Set mixer to low speed and slowly add flour mixture. 
Beat until just combined and fold in chocolate chips and candy cane pieces.
Drop tablespoons of batter two inches apart onto a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. 
Bake for 12 minutes or until set.
Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes, then finish cooling on wire racks.
