Chocolate Candy Cane Kiss Cookies

Oooh wow. These cookies are AMAZING! I am so glad I decided to try them out. They are a perfect holiday cookie! And I love that they didn't call for anything out of the ordinary with the exception of the candy cane kisses. I also used mini chocolate chips instead of regular, I'm not sure if that's makes a ton of difference or not.

There was some debate in this home on when to put the candy cane kiss on the cookie. I didn't want it all melted, but my sweet man tried one that had melted and insisted that was the way to do it. He fell in love immediately soooo I'm torn. Try it out at different stages and see what you like the best!
^^Some of them are melted more than others. What do you think?

What you will need:

  • 1/2 C shortening
  • 1/2 C butter
  • 1 C sugar
  • 1 C brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. peppermint extract
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 C+2 T unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 1/2 C flour
  • 2 C chocolate chips
  • Combine shortening, butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla and peppermint extract and mix well
  • In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients; flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder
  • Combine all ingredients and mix well
  • Fold in chocolate chips
  • Refrigerate cookie dough for 30-60 minutes to prevent the cookies from flattening
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Bake cookies for 8 minutes or until they are set up but the middle is still soft
  • Allow cookies to cool for 1-2 minutes before adding the candy cane kisses
  • Allow cookies to cool until kisses have hardened
