Oh, these cookies. So dangerous.
They are a complete chocolate extravaganza, but in a very balanced way.You know how sometimes things can be too chocolate-y in a one-note kind of way?(I know, some will argue that such a thing isnt possible, but its easy to overdo the chocolate for me).Well, the cookie dough here is made with cocoa powder AND melted bittersweet chocolate, then semisweet chocolate chips are folded into the dough, then the cookies are half-dipped in melted white chocolate, and topped with crunchy crushed candy canes.Its glorious.
And each chocolate element has its role in making an irresistible cookie that I basically want to eat every day but only let myself eat during the holidays. Heh.

Make sure to do it right after dipping the cookie, before the white chocolate sets! That way the pieces stick.
Ideally, let the white chocolate harden before enjoyingbutI wont blame you if you cant wait. Enjoy!
