Candy Cane White Chocolate Chip Cookies are made with basic baking ingredients, white chocolate chips and crushed candy cane bits for a festive treat even Santa wants to sneak in this holiday season.


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons hot water
  • 11 ounces white chocolate chips
  • 5 candy canes


  1. Place candy canes into ziploc bag. Use a rolling pin or something similar to crush the candy canes. Save for later.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add softened hutter, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Use a hand or stand mixer to beat until creamy and smooth.
  3. Add vanilla extract and eggs. Beat again.
  4. Add salt.
  5. In a seperate bowl, dissolve baking soda in hot water and then add to dough. Use mixer to beat while slowly adding in flour.
  6. Fold in chocolate chips.
  7. Place dough in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  8. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  9. Use a cookie scoop to place dough onto baking sheet giving space between each to bake.
  10. Place crushed candy canes on top of each cookie. I like to just dip the top of each cookie dough ball into the bag of crushed candy canes and place back onto baking sheet.
  11. Bake 10-12 minutes.
  12. Cool on cooling rack.
