Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies with Candy Cane

My friend Amy over at Skinny for by Amy started a Baking Gals of 'Bees. I made these for Round 15 which, mails out to our Troops on Wednesday.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies w/ Candy Cane
Adapted from recipe by Kathy


1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 crushed candy cane

1 - Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2 - In large bowl, beat butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until light and fluffy.

3 - Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; stir into the butter mixture until well blended.

4 - Mix in the chocolate chips and crushed candy cane.

5 - Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.

6 - Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or just until set.

7 - Cool slightly on the cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

My original plan was to bake all weekend and make a bunch of different cookies, but then our apartment complex re-finished our shower by mistake and we had to stay in a hotel all weekend. By the time I was back in our apartment Sunday night I didn't have as much baking time as I'd planned so I had to stick to one recipe and I'm filling the rest of the box with an assortment of Easy Mac Cups which, rumor has, the troops really like.

What are your favorite Christmas Cookies?

Those look delicious and I love that you're sending them to troops overseas. It's the little things like that that remind them what they're doing over there. Thanks :)
