Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
step 2
In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the Eggs (2), Granulated Sugar (3/4 cup), Dark Brown Sugar (1/2 cup), Unsalted Butter (1/2 cup), Instant Coffee (1 Tbsp), and Peppermint Extract (1 tsp). Beat the mixture until it becomes smooth.
step 3
In a separate bowl, mix the All-Purpose Flour (1 cup), Dark Chocolate (1/2 cup), Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (11 tsp), Baking Soda (1 tsp), and Salt (as needed) to prepare the dry ingredients.
step 4
Gradually add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredients in the stand mixer, adding it in thirds. Mix until just combined; avoid overmixing.
step 5
Using an ice cream scoop, drop scoops of the cookie mixture onto a lined baking tray.
step 6
Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 8 minutes. Then, carefully remove the baking tray from the oven and gently slam it onto the counter to create cracks on the surface of the cookies.
step 7
Sprinkle the crushed Candy Canes (9 tsp) and reserve chocolate shards over the partially baked cookies.
step 8
Return the cookies to the oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
step 9
Once the cookies are baked, remove them from the oven and transfer them to a cooling rack.
step 10
For an extra touch, you can consider topping the cookies with a sprinkle of Sea Salt Flakes (to taste) before they cool completely.
