Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a standing mixer, cream the butter and sugars together until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time until fully mixed. Mix in vanilla.
In another bowl, sift together dry ingredients.
Slowly mix dry ingredients into bowl of wet ingredients until well combined. Stir in chocolate chips by hand.
Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop dough onto prepared baking sheets, 2 inches apart.
Bake 8-11 minutes at 350°F.
Allow cookies to cool while you melt the Ghirardelli chocolate wafers. You can do this with a double boiler or in the microwave, but be sure to use a microwave safe bowl and handle with care as bowl may become hot.
Stir melted chocolate until smooth, then dip half of each cookie into the chocolate. Allow excess chocolate to drip back into the bowl, then set cookie on your baking sheet.
Sprinkle crushed candy canes on the still wet chocolate, then allow to set.
