These festive chocolate cookies are dipped in melted white chocolate and crushed candy canes. Perfect for a Christmas baking tray of goodies.
Prep Time: 30minutes
Cook Time: 15minutes
1 1/3cupwhite chocolate or candy melts
1cupcrushed candy canes
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Cream the butter, sugar, egg and cocoa with an electric mixer until smooth. Beat in the flour, salt and baking powder until well combined.
Divide the dough into 6 equal portions. Roll one portion of the dough into a 12 inch log. Cut six 2 inch finger cookies. Place the cookies about 1 1/2 inches apart, on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Make finger cookies with the remaining portions of dough.
Bake the cookies for 15 minutes. The cookies should be just starting to brown on the bottom edges.
Remove from the oven and place the cookies on a cooling rack.
Place the white chocolate or candy melts in a bowl and melt in a microwave over 50% power for 3-4 minutes. Stir until smooth. If there are still some unmelted lumps, cook a little more, 1 minute at a time, and stir until melted.
Dip each cookie half way into the melted white chocolate. Lift the cookie out and let any excess chocolate drip off. Dip the cookie into the crushed candy canes.
Place the cookie on a silicone mat or parchment paper until the white chocolate is hardened and set.
