Since I’m in the holiday mood, I decided to make some cookies. I wanted something that was a little festive but that still screamed chocolate chip. So, I made some Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies and added a little festive flare by beating some candy canes with a meat tenderizer and sprinkling over the top of the cookies as soon as they came out of the oven.
The cookies turned out chocolately, but not too chocolately and they were delicious! The little crunch of the peppermint was a nice surprise and it gave it just the right about of peppermint taste without being to overpowering.
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup cocoa
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup butter or margarine, softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips
I hope your family enjoys these just as much as my family did. Because the recipe makes so many, box some up and gift them for Christmas!
