A sweet chocolate espresso cookie filled with white chocolate chips, sprinkled with candy cane pieces and drizzled with white chocolate. A perfect replica of a White Chocolate Peppermint Mocha Latte.
Serves: 24 Cookies
Ingredients
  • ¾ cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1½ tsp. espresso powder
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 8 tbsp (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup egg substitute or 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 candy cane, broken into pieces
  • ¼ cup white chocolate chips, melted
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Generously spray mini muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray or line with paper muffin cups(spray the paper cups).
  3. In a small bowl, mix flour, cocoa powder, espresso powder, baking powder and salt; stir with a fork to combine.
  4. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in brown sugar. Let it cool slightly, then stir in egg and vanilla, stir until smooth. Stir in flour mixture, then white chocolate chips.
  5. Portion out about 2 tablespoons of batter into each muffin cup and smooth tops with a small spatula or back of spoon. Sprinkle with candy cane pieces. Bake until just set, about 10 minutes. Let blondies cool completely on a wire rack before removing from the pan.
  6. Once cool, drizzle the top of the cookies with white chocolate. I melted my chocolate in the microwave for 10 seconds, stirred and microwaved for 8 seconds, then stir until smooth. Then I scooped/poured the chocolate in to a plastic baggie, cut the corner and drizzled the chocolate over the top of the cookies. Let the chocolate set before touching.

You can sub 1 cup plain greek yogurt for butter, however the texture was chewy and more brownie like then cookie, but it still tasted good!
