Things you'll need

Ingredients
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup dark cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon espresso powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Decoration
  • 16 ounces white candy melts
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint oil
  • 1 cup crushed candy canes

Let's get started!

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, dark cocoa powder, espresso powder, salt and baking powder. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl using a hand mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla to the butter mixture, and mix until combined. 
  4. Add the ry mixture to the wet mixture and mix until combined.
  5. On a lightly floured surface roll out the dough to be 1/4" thick. Transfer the dough to a sheet pan and let dough freeze for 30 minutes.
  6. Once dough is frozen, cut out rounds with the 2-inch round cookie cutter. Place them an inch apart on a parchment lined half sheet.
  7. Preheat the oven to 375F and bake for 8-10 minutes. Let cookies cook completely. 

Time to Decorate!

  1. In a large bowl, melt the Candy melts in the microwave. Add the peppermint oil to the chocolate and mix until completely combined.
  2. Dip each cookie into the white chocolate using a fork. Place dipper cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  3. While the chocolate is still warm, sprinkle the crushed candy canes on top.
  4. Let cookies set completely at room temperature.
