Triple Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies

  • 3/4 C butter, softened
  • 1 C sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1-3/4 C flour
  • 1/2 C baking cocoa
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 3 oz. white baking chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tsp. canola oil, divided
  • 3 oz. semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/4 C crushed candy canes (about 10 miniature)

Preheat oven to 350°.

In a small bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. In another bowl, whisk flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda; gradually beat into creamed mixture.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls (small cookie scoop works well); place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten to 2-inch rounds with the bottom of a glass. Bake 6-8 minutes or until set (do not overbake). Cool on pans 5 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.

In a microwave, melt white chocolate with 1 teaspoon oil; stir until smooth. Drizzle over cookies. Repeat with semisweet chocolate and remaining oil. Sprinkle tops with crushed candy canes; let stand until set.
