I’m so excited to be participating in the 12 Days of Cookies recipe exchange with so many awesome bloggers.
I’ve made cookies with frosting in the dough before. Like I’ve said before, I don’t typically make the same recipe twice, but the great thing about these that there are so many possibilities.
You can use any type of frosting you want. This time, I used peanut butter frosting. Then, I did somethin’ crazy and rolled them in hot chocolate mix. Like I said, crazy. But really, these cookies are super good. My mom hates peanut butter, but she loved these. Imagine how much you’ll like them if you love peanut butter.
These are the perfect Christmas cookies. I can guarantee nobody else will be bringing them to your family/friend get-together, but they’re still festive with the addition of hot chocolate. Perfect, right?
What frosting flavor would you like to try with these?
This recipe is adapted from The Caramel Cookie.
- 1½ cups flour
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¾ cup peanut butter frosting
- 1 egg
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ cup sugar
- ½ cup hot chocolate mix (or enough for rolling)
- Heat oven to 350. Grease a cookie sheet or line with a Silpat mat.
- In a medium bowl, mix the flour, salt, and baking soda.
- In a separate bowl, mix the frosting, egg, vanilla, and sugar on medium speed for 2 minutes.
- Add the wet mixture to the dry and stir until well combined.
- By tablespoon fulls, roll cookies in hot chocolate mix.
- Place cookies on prepared cookie sheet. Press on them lightly to flatten.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes. They’ll be a tad gooey when you pull them out.
