1. Cookies: Sift together flour, Nestlé®Toll House® Baking Cocoa, baking powder, and kosher salt. Stir, then set aside.

4. Chill dough for at least an hour or overnight.

5. Preheat oven to 325ºF (300ºF for convection ovens).

6. Using a 1 tablespoon-size scoop, scoop out cookies onto a baking sheet, spacing them 2 inches apart. Gently flatten with your palm or the bottom of a measuring cup.

7. Bake 12–14 minutes or until cookies are set. Remove from oven and let cookies cool completely.

8. Buttercream: Place butter, powdered sugar, and kosher salt in a bowl. Beat with a hand mixer until fluffy. Beat in peppermint extract and ⅓ cup crushed candy canes.

9. Spread buttercream on the flat side of a cookie. Top with another cookie to make a sandwich. Roll the edges of the cookie in the rest of the crushed candy canes. Enjoy!
