Triple Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3 ounces white baking chocolate, chopped
2 teaspoons canola oil, divided
3 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
1/4 cup crushed candy canes (about 10 miniature)
Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. In another bowl, whisk flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda; gradually beat into creamed mixture.
Shape dough into 1-in. balls; place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten to 2-in. rounds with the bottom of a glass. Bake 6-8 minutes or until set (do not overbake). Cool on pans 5 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
In a microwave, melt white chocolate with 1 teaspoon oil; stir until smooth. Drizzle over cookies. Repeat with semisweet chocolate and remaining oil. Sprinkle tops with crushed candy canes; let stand until set. Yield: about 3 dozen.
