1 stick unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 tsp. peppermint extract
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
1 candy cane, finely crushed

Preheat oven to 350º.

In a large bowl, mix butter and sugar together for about 1 to 2 minutes. Add egg, peppermint and vanilla extract and beat until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Mix until well combined. Mix in chocolate chips.

Form dough into small balls and place about 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Pull cookies out of the oven and sprinkle candy cane overtop. Transfer to a wired rack to completely cool.
