Cuisine American
Servings 20 cookies


  • 1 lb semisweet chocolate
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature (I place mine in a bowl of warm water)
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp peppermint extract
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 12 oz semisweet chocolate chips
  • cup crushed candy canes


  • In a bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water, melt the chocolate with the butter, stirring a few times, until smooth, about 7 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder. Set aside
  • In another large bowl, using a handheld electric mixer beat the eggs with the sugar at medium speed until thick and pale, about 5 minutes. Beat in the vanilla, peppermint and salt.
  • Using a rubber spatula, fold in the melted chocolate a little at a time, then fold in the flour and baking powder.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Scrape the batter into a shallow baking dish, or bowl, cover and freeze until well-chilled and firm, about 1 hour.
  • You can also keep it in the refrigerator for few hours or overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Working in batches, scoop 2-tablespoon-size mounds of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake for about 8 minutes, remove from the oven and top with crushed candy cane pieces. Bake for another 2 minutes until the cookies are set around the edges and cracked on top. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 10 minutes, then transfer to a rack to cool completely before serving.
