The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap of 2015 is here and it's going to be a delicious day of recipes for you and yours to enjoy now or later! All of the bloggers who are joining us today have donated money to
! Cookies for a good cause? That makes the indulging a little bit better, am I right?
Thanks OXO for the great measuring set!
Because I feature a lot of cocktails on my blog I knew I wanted to add something boozy to the cookies that I created. I played around with bourbon and finally landed on
1 cup hot chocolate
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
2 cups flour
6 tbsp amaretto
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
4 tbsp milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl add butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla and 4 tbsp amaretto. In a separate bowl mix flour, cocoa and salt. In a median sauce pan over medium heat add 1 cup of dark chocolate chips, milk, and 2 tbsp amaretto until melted. Slowly mix all ingredients together and then fold in 3/4 cup of dark chocolate chips. Roll dough into small balls on a baking pan and out in the oven for 12-14 minutes or until cooked.
I definitely recommend enjoying with a cup of coffee and fresh baked cookies (or nuke in the microwave for about 5-10 seconds so the chocolate chips are gooey).
