Feel free to double this recipe if you want more cookies as this is a quite small batch!

175 g dark chocolate (70%), chopped
25 g salted butter
30 g all purpose flour
1/2 ml (or about 1/10 of a teaspoon) baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 large egg
75 g granulated sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract 
100 g milk chocolate, melted
Crushed candy cane

Melt 100 grams of the chocolate and the butter in a double boiler. Let cool.Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
Beat egg, sugar and vanilla until pale and fluffy, about 8-10 minutes.
Stir in chocolate mixture and 75 g chopped chocolate. Add flour mixture and stir until completely smooth.
Let mixture rest in room temperature for 15 minutes or so. Meanwhile, heat the oven to 175°C (350F). Spoon about 2 tbsp of dough for each cookie onto a sheet with baking paper leaving some space between cookies. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let cool.
Dip cookies in milk chocolate and then in crushed candy cane (or sprinkle candy cane on top). Put cookies on a wire rack to harden.
