Bring the holiday cheer into the kitchen with family. Make a quick batch of Candy Cane Cookies with HERSHEY'S CHIPITS easy to follow recipe.
Melt chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl set over simmering water. Cool to room temperature. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
For an even greater burst of chocolate taste, substitute HERSHEY'S CHIPITS Baking Chips with HERSHEY'S CHIPITS Chunks.
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).
Use a rolling pin or the bottom of a heavy saucepan to crush candies.
Drop cookie dough by the spoonful onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake for 10 minutes or until just set but still chewy.
Garnish each cookie with additional melted chocolate and an additional sprinkle of crushed candy canes.
