Ingredients

1 cup CHIPITS Dark Chocolate Chips or Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (250 mL)
1 cup softened, unsalted butter (250 mL)
1 cup granulated sugar (250 mL)
1 cup lightly packed brown sugar (250 mL)
2 eggs (2)
1 tsp vanilla extract (5 mL)
3 cups all-purpose flour (750 mL)
1 tsp baking soda (5 mL)
1/2 tsp salt (2 mL)
1 cup CHIPITS Mint Chocolate Chips (250 mL)
1/2 cup coarsely crushed candy canes or striped mint candies (optional) (125 mL)

Directions

1. Melt chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl set over simmering water. Cool to room temperature. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
2. Beat butter with granulated and brown sugars until fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time; add vanilla. Mix flour with baking soda and salt in a separate bowl. On low speed, alternately add flour mixture and melted chocolate. Stir in mint chips and crushed candy (if using).
3. Drop cookie dough by the spoonful onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake for 10 minutes or until just set but still chewy.
Makes 48 cookies.

Tips:

  •  For an even greater burst of chocolate taste, substitute HERSHEY’S CHIPITS Baking Chips with HERSHEY’S CHIPITS Chunks.
  •  Use a rolling pin or the bottom of a heavy saucepan to crush candies.
  •  Garnish each cookie with additional melted chocolate and an additional sprinkle of crushed candy canes.
