12 Days of Cookies! Day 10 Peppermint Chocolate Chip

I used the original Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe with just a couple of changes for the holidays. Nestle came out with some really festive morsels, they were the regular chocolate color but there were also red and green ones too!! This really got me thinking about Christmas and how just a little change thing can make something from everyday to holiday! When I think of Christmas one of the things that comes to my mind is candy canes. So below is mostly the Nestle recipe with just two small changes.

Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:
2 ½ cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter softened
¾ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 large eggs
2 cups (12 oz.) chocolate chips
5 candy canes, crushed

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. In a medium bowl cream together the butter and sugars. Add in the vanilla extract and the eggs and mix until well blended. In a separate bowl mix together the salt, baking soda and flour, then slowly add this mixture to the butter mixture, mix until blended.
3. Crush 5 candy canes, I broke mine into pieces and then used the blender to completely crush them into a powder. Fold in the chocolate chips and the candy cane.
