In a large bowl beat butter with a mixer on medium to high 30 seconds. Add sugar and salt. Beat until combined, scraping bowl as needed. Beat in melted chocolate. Beat in egg, egg yolk, and vanilla. Add flour mixture; beat in until just combined. Divide the dough in half. Cover and chill 1 hour or until dough is easy to handle. Preheat oven to 375°F. On a lightly floured surface, roll one portion of dough at a time to 1/8 inch thick. Using 3- to 3 1/2-inch candy cane cookie cutter, cut out dough. (If necessary, dip cutters in flour to prevent sticking.) Place cutouts 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Make sure the crooks in the candy canes are wide enough to fit over a mug rim. Reroll scraps once. Bake about 7 minutes or until edges are firm. If necessary, push crooks in candy canes open while cookies are warm. Remove; cool on a wire rack. Decorate as desired with Royal Icing. *Tip To make superfine sugar, process 1 cup granulated sugar in a food processor 30 seconds.
