    Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup shortening
    • 1/2 cup butter
    • 1 cup light brown sugar
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 eggs (large)
    • 2 tsp vanilla
    • 1 tsp peppermint extract
    • 1 tsp baking soda
    • 1 tsp baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (+ 2 tbsp)
    • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
    • 10 oz Hershey's Candy Cane Kisses (1 bag, unwrapped)

    Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, cream together softened butter, shortening, brown sugar and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla, and peppermint extract. In a separate bowl, combine baking powder, baking soda, salt, flour and cocoa powder. Add to the butter/sugar mixture and combine. Fold in chocolate chips. Chill dough in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes to avoid cookies from flattening.

    2. After your dough has chilled, drop by rounded tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 minutes or until set up but the centers are still soft. Let the cookies cool for 1-2 minutes. Top each cookie with an unwrapped Candy Cane Kiss. Allow to cool long enough for the Kisses to harden.
