Candy Cane Cookies

Baking cookies this time of year is best isn’t it? I can’t get enough. Can you even believe that Christmas is this week? Such a fun time with family and friends. Treat them to my Christmas cookies, they’ll all be thrilled! Adding candy cane bits to my favorite cookie dough was a fantastic idea. Not only is the red color fun and festive, the texture that the melted little candy cane bits bring to these cookies are amazing! Can’t wait for you to try them!

    I have never tried mixing candy cane to a cookie mix. This recipe looks delicious. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe with us. The cookie color looks cute. By the way, what if I don’t have vanilla mix, what is the best substitue for that?

    Hi Picky Palate!

    Wow! yummy blog!

    I love the peppermint and chocolate flavor combination on this recipe, This is definitely the best! I will try making them this week and hoe that it would look and taste delicious like the one you made. Beside the peppermint, what else can i combine with chocolate?

    These popped up on Instagram at just the right time to add to my Christmas Cookie list. I used chocolate pudding, because it’s what I had. They were a little tough getting off of cookie sheet, with melty candy canes and all. But my husband and son love them.
