These chocolate cookies are perfect for the holidays when you have an abundance of candy canes. The dark chocolate and the peppermint flavor from the candy canes are the perfect combination to create the perfect treat for gifting, bringing to a gathering, or simply enjoying with a cold glass of milk at the end of a long winter day. The creamy frosting makes for a nice contrast to the chewy chocolate cookies.
