Peppermint Mocha Chip Cookies

3/4  cup unsalted butter, softened
3 cups semi-sweet chocolate morsels, divided
1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
3 tsp. instant coffee granules
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. peppermint extract
3 large eggs
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
12 soft peppermint candies, crushed

Preheat oven to 375°. Grease or line baking sheet with parchment paper. Melt butter and 1 cup chocolate morsels in medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, until smooth. Transfer chocolate mixture into a large mixer bowl; add sugar and beat until combined. Add coffee granules, vanilla extract, and peppermint extract; beat just until combined. Beat in eggs. Add flour and baking powder, mixing until all is incorporated. Fold in remaining 2 cups chocolate morsels. Scoop dough onto prepared baking sheet, spacing 2 inches apart, using a medium-size cookie scoop. Sprinkle each cookie with a little of the crushed peppermint candies. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies are set. Allow to cool for about 2 minutes on baking sheet and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes 36 cookies.
