Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. In a bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add in the eggs and peppermint extract. Beat until well combined.

In another bowl, mix the dry ingredients and beat them into the batter. Combine all the ingredients and then stir in the chocolate chips.

Scoop the cookie dough onto the prepared trays and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove them from the trays and set aside to cool. Repeat with the remaining dough.

When the cookies have cooled, start making the frosting. In a bowl, combine all the frosting ingredients. Whip on high until a fluffy pink frosting forms. Spread the frosting on the cookies and sprinkle with the crushed candy canes.
