  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter room temperature

  • 24 doses peppermint CBD oil optional
  • cookie icing optional


  1. Mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium sized bowl and set aside.
  2. In a stand mixer, mx the butter and sugar on medium-high until it’s fluffy. About 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add in the egg, peppermint extract, vanilla extract, and CBD oil to the stand mixer and mix for about 1 minute.
  4. With the mixer on low, add in the flour mixture a little at a time. Be sure to scrape the sides of the bowl and don’t add too much at once.
  5. Add in the chocolate chips and mix.
  6. Sprinkle a little bit of flour into the mixture if it’s too sticky and stir it up.
  7. Scoop the dough into balls and slightly flatter them on a baking sheet.
  8. Crush the candy canes and then press a little into each cookie.
  9. Bake at 340F for 8 minutes and then let cookies cool on a rack.
  10. Pour on the cookie icing if you want a little bit of added sweetness.

NOTE: Don’t bake the cookies for longer than 8 minutes. It’s the perfect amount of time for them to be gooey and chewy. They might look like they need another few minutes but they will cool into perfect cookies.
