This is one of my favourites, this recipe is from the "good mood food" blog and is just fantastic.

Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies
(Makes about 12-15 cookies)

110g butter, softened and chopped
1 cup (175g) brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup (150g) plain (all-purpose) flour, sifted
¼ cup (25g) cocoa, sifted
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
120g dark chocolate, melted
280g dark chocolate, extra, chopped
120g candy canes, chopped

- Preheat oven to 160°C/ Gas Mark 3.
- Place the butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat for 8–10 minutes or until light and creamy.
- Add the egg and vanilla and beat until well combined.
- Add the flour, cocoa, bicarbonate of soda and melted chocolate and beat until just combined.
- Fold through the extra chopped chocolate.
- Roll tablespoonfuls of the mixture into rounds.
- Place on baking trays lined with non-stick baking paper, allowing room for the cookies to spread, and flatten slightly.
- Press the chopped candy canes into the tops of the cookies and bake for 12–15 minutes or until the edges are firm.
