1

Melt chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl set over simmering water. Cool to room temperature. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

Tip

For an even greater burst of chocolate taste, substitute HERSHEY'S CHIPITS Baking Chips with HERSHEY'S CHIPITS Chunks.

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 crushed candy (if using).

Tip

Use a rolling pin or the bottom of a heavy saucepan to crush candies.

3

Drop cookie dough by the spoonful onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake for 10 minutes or until just set but still chewy.

Tip

Garnish each cookie with additional melted chocolate and an additional sprinkle of crushed candy canes.
