Here it is, with one caveat: When I made them, they spread all over the baking sheet to make one giant sticky cookie. One giant DELICIOUS sticky cookie, which we and our friends gobbled up like pigs at a trough. But they weren't suitable for bringing to a party or giving as gifts ("Here's a Tupperware dish of Cookie Hash--enjoy!")
But I know the recipe is a good one, because it won the annual cookie contest held by the Baltimore Sun every year. (It was several years ago, so I can't find a link online.)
Anyway, here's the recipe. Any advice on what I did wrong, how I managed to create a Mega Cookie Muck instead of actual cookies, would be greatly appreciated!
2 cups flour
3/4 cups cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups softened butter
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons mint extract
6 candy canes, crushed
10 oz. semisweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.
- Beat the butter, sugar and mint extract in a large bowl until creamy. Add the eggs and beat.
- Gradually beat in the dry mixture. Stir in the crushed candy-cane pieces and the chocolate chips.
- Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheets and bake for 9-12 minutes.
Enjoy, and happy holidays!
