Candy Cane Chocolate Wafers


These chocolaty wafers are a delicious holiday treat — and they're great without candy canes any other time of the year. 


  • 1 1/2 sticks butter, at room temperature
  • 3 Cups sugar
  • 2 1/2 Cups flour
  • 1 Cup cocoa powder
  • 2 Teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3/4 Cups crushed candy canes


Cream together the butter, sugar, and eggs in a stand mixer. In a separate bowl, sift together the dry ingredients. Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the sugar-butter mixture and then chill for at least 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Roll out the dough and cut into round cookie shapes, or any shape of your choosing, and lay out onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until crispy and cooked through.
