12 Days of Christmas Cookies: Day 9- Dark Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies

For day 9 I decided to do a little twist on the classic chocolate chip cookie. These chewy dark double chocolate cookies have a sprinkle of crushed candy cane on top to add a Christmas twist.

Ingredients 

125g softened butter 

150g light brown sugar 

1 large egg 

150g plain flour 

2 tbsp cocoa powder 

1 tsp baking soda 

125g melted dark chocolate 

250g chopped up dark chocolate chunks or chips 

Crushed candy canes  

Method 

Preheat oven to 180°c. Line a flat baking tray with grease proof paper. 

Cream together the butter and sugar until creamy and light, then add in the egg until well combined. Mix the flour, cocoa powder and baking soda in a separate bowl, then melt the dark chocolate. Slowly add in the flour mixture and melted dark chocolate to the butter and sugar mix and blend together until a dough is formed. Add in the dark chocolate chips and mix in well. 

Measure out 1/2 tbsp of the dough and roll into balls. Place evenly spaced out on the baking tray and bake until the edges are firmed for 10-12 minutes. 

Once the cookies are baked, remove from the oven and sprinkle the crushed candy cane over the top of the cookies before they are cooled, this will ensure the candy cane adheres to the cookies. 

Enjoy!
