I feel like this week is like the movie Groundhog Day for my blog. Because last week I posted recipes involving sweet potatoes and candy canes. And this week? More sweet potatoes and more candy canes. I was going to save this Chewy Chocolate Candy Cane cookies recipe for next week, but I want to post it in time for holiday baking. Because it’s really good!
I am not a crispy cookie person. For me, it’s all about the chewiness. And these cookies are the easiest, chewiest, yummiest cookies I make. The basic chocolate cookie is one of my go-to recipes (yup, it’s the one I used in my Chocolate Peppermint Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches) and I add whatever I have on hand to finish them. Toffee pieces, peanut butter chips, dried cherries, chopped nuts–they’re all great in these cookies. So since it’s Christmas cookie season, I decided to try adding broken candy cane pieces. They’re not the prettiest cookie, it’s true, but they make up for it in taste–chewy chocolatey cookies dotted with crispy bits of peppermint.
Do you have a favorite recipe for holiday cookies? I would love to hear about it!
