|Chocolate Lace Cookies|
Chocolate Lace Cookies are very gourmet, yet inexpensive to make. Click here for the recipe at Sugar Derby. These are very chewy, almost like a thin layer of caramel covered in chocolate. I’ve had these at a chi-chi restaurant with vanilla ice cream and they were terrific. Only they served the cookies topped by the ice cream. The cold made the cookies almost impossible to get out of the dish, but they were so good that I kept digging away with my spoon to get every last yummy bit. I suggest serving these on the side with ice cream. Be sure to use good dark chocolate on these.
|Coconut Kiss Cookies|
Click here for the recipe for Macaroon Kiss Cookies at Rook No. 17. It seems you can put a Hershey’s Kiss on any cookie to make it more interesting. You can also use candied cherries in red and/or green for these. Those cherries look good on shortbread also for a red, white, and green look. Mom always cut small shortbread circles with a doughnut hole cutter for these. They were so pretty on her Christmas cookie tray, like little jewels.
|German Chocolate Brownies|
If you like German chocolate cake, you will like German Chocolate Brownies with Brown Sugar Pecan Coconut Crust. I’d cut these on the small side because they are so rich. Click here for the recipe at Bankindom.
These adorable mice are made of candy and perched atop a cookie. The head is an unwrapped Hershey’s kiss and the body is a chocolate-dipped maraschino cherry with the cherry stem serving as the tail. Pretty easy! Just dip the cherries and assemble with slivered almonds stuck in for the ears. You can use dots of frosting for the eyes. So cute! These will disappear at any party!
