1/4 cup butter, softened
1-2/3 cups packed brown sugar
4 large egg whites, room temperature
2 large eggs, room temperature
3/4 cup strong brewed coffee
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup baking cocoa
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups buttermilk
1 cup (6 ounces) miniature semisweet chocolate chips
2 ounces white baking chocolate, melted
3 tablespoons crushed candy canes
Preheat oven to 350°. Coat eight 5-3/4x3x2-in. loaf pans with cooking spray. In a large bowl, beat butter and brown sugar until crumbly, about 2 minutes. Add egg whites, eggs, coffee, yogurt, oil and extracts until blended.
In another bowl, whisk flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; add to brown sugar mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating well after each addition. Fold in chocolate chips.
Transfer to prepared pans. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 35-40 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
Drizzle melted white baking chocolate over loaves. Sprinkle with crushed candies.
