Mint Chocolate Truffle Cookies
- 6 oz. semi-sweet baking chocolate
- 3/4 cup butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/3 cup candy canes, or other hard peppermint candies, crushed
Microwave chocolate and butter in large microwave bowl on HIGH 2 minutes or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing until well blended after each addition. Add combined flour and baking powder; mix well. (Dough will be very soft.) Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Roll heaping teaspoonfuls of dough into 1 inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes or until tops are set. (Do not overbake.) Immediately sprinkle with chopped candy. Cool one minute on baking sheets. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
