  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 Tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 stick butter salted
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Top of cookies:

  • 1/4 cup of white melting chocolate
  • 1/4 cup crushed candy canes


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar, sugar, and butter, mixing until creamy.
  • Add in the egg and vanilla.
  • Once combined, mix in the flour and cocoa powder, scraping the sides of the bowl to make sure it is well combined. Using a large spoon or spatula, stir in the chocolate chips, evenly distributing them throughout the dough.
  • Once the dough is done, use a small portion scoop, or spoon, and place small portions, about 2 inches in size, onto the cookie sheet, with a little room in between each portion so cookies have room to spread.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool.
  • Melt the white chocolate in the microwave, and drizzle over the cookies.
  • Top with crushed candy canes.


  1. Other add ins besides chocolate chips include, nuts, andes candies pieces, more crushed candy canes, etc.
  2. You can use any kind of chocolate chips that you would like.
  3. We like to use a stand mixer for cookies since they are thicker but a hand mixer will work as well.
  4. You can freeze these cookies baked and unbaked, see my tips above.
  5. Double this recipe to serve more people or give away at your holiday cookie exchanges!
