  • 3 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 eggs (room temperature)
  • 1⁄2 cup unsalted butter (melted)
  • 7 ounces semi sweet or dark chocolate chips

  • 1⁄2 light brown sugar (firmly packed)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 7 ounces of white chocolate chips or candy melts for dipping Candy Canes- crushed for topping
  • Alden’s Organic Peppermint Twist Ice Cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl- combine the flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder.
  3. In a medium glass heat-proof bowl-combine the butter and sugars and microwave for 30 seconds. Just enough to melt the butter then combine using a whisk or spatula.
  4. Melt the chocolate either in a medium saucepan on low on the stove (making sure to constantly stir until just melted or in the microwave on 10 second increments, stirring in between. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.)
  5. Add the eggs and vanilla to the butter and sugar mixture. Whisk to combine.
  6. Add the melted chocolate and fold into the wet mixture with a spatula until combined.
  7. Add the dry mixture to the wet and fold with a spatula until combined.
  8. Using a cookie scoop-place 6-8 round cookies 2-inches apart. Bake for 11-12 minutes.
  9. While the cookie cools- melt the white chocolate chips in a microwave heat proof bowl on 15 second increments, stirring in between until fully melted.
  10. Place candy canes in a sealed plastic bag and crush using a rolling pin or something heavy like the bottom of a cup.
  11. Dip the cooled cookies in the white chocolate and place on a cookie rack with parchment paper (for easy clean up) to dry. Immediately sprinkle peppermint candy on top of the white chocolate.
  12. Sandwich a scoop of Alden’s Organic Peppermint Twist Ice Cream in between two cookies.
