So, my boyfriend and his friend outsourced some baking to me for their class potluck tonight.  To make it easy on myself, I made one big batch of chocolate chip cookie dough, divided it in half, and then added new flavors to half the batch.  We have these three HUGE - we're talking like three feet long - candy canes left over from xmas, so I decided to use one of them up.  What's good with peppermint?  You guessed it - chocolate!

Absolutely to die for!  Chocolate chip cookie dough is my absolute favorite base dough, so adding more chocolate and mint and candy cane...so so good!  Plus, the house smells absolutely awesome now!

Recipe for Peppermint Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup wheat flour
1/2 - 1 cup cocoa, depending on how chocolaty you like your cookies
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup softened butter, or some type of margarine
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar (dark brown is best)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon mint extract
2 large eggs
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup crushed candy canes or other peppermint candy, plus extra for garnishing

Preheat oven to 375.  Cream butter and sugar together in a large bowl until light and fluffy.  Mix dry ingredients in a seperate bowl until well combined.  Add eggs, one at a time, and blend with hand beater or stand mixer until fully incorporated, then add in the mint and vanilla.  Slowly beat in the flour, scraping the sides with a spatula until the dough is one uniform mass.  Stir in the chocolate chips and candy canes.  Drop onto cookie sheets covered in parchment paper/foil, and sprinkle extra crushed candy cane or peppermint candy on top, as much as you like.  Bake in the center of the oven for 7-10 minutes, until solid but still soft. 

I hope you all enjoy these as much as I am!

Mmmm sounds good.  I made chocolate peppermint bark cookies for Christmas and I think it's pretty much the same thing as these.  I just love chocolate cookies and peppermint. I kind of want one of these cookies now... Smiley
