I really feel like this week is just like the film Groundhog Day for my weblog. Because final week I posted recipes involving candy potatoes and sweet canes. And this week? More candy potatoes and extra sweet canes. I used to be going to save lots of this Chewy Chocolate Candy Cane cookies recipe for subsequent week, however I need to publish it in time for vacation baking. Because it’s actually good!
(And in case you don’t have sweet canes readily available, you should use starlight mints too. I made these once more to replace the pictures and they’re simply nearly as good. Peppermint sweet is peppermint sweet, proper?)
I’m not a crispy cookie particular person. For me, it’s all in regards to the chewiness. And these cookies are the best, chewiest, yummiest cookies I make. The primary chocolate cookie is certainly one of my go-to recipes (yup, it’s the one I utilized in my Chocolate Peppermint Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches) and I add no matter I’ve readily available to complete them. Toffee items, peanut butter chips, dried cherries, chopped nuts—they’re all nice in these cookies. So because it’s Christmas cookie season, I made a decision to attempt including damaged sweet cane items. They’re not the prettiest cookie, it’s true, however they make up for it in style—chewy chocolatey cookies dotted with crispy bits of peppermint.
Do you may have a favourite recipe for vacation cookies? I’d love to listen to about it!
