Chocolate Dipped Spice Cookies for #BloggersforSandyHook
Today’s post is dedicated to the victims of Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, CT. I created these Chocolate Dipped Spice Cookies in honor.
I’m taking part in the Cookies & Crafts for Sandy Hook tribute. When I saw the post calling for participants, I knew I wanted to take part. When something devastating happens, you feel helpless but all you really want to do, is DO something. I came across that post on a day where I was already considering writing about the situation, so I decided this would be better than delving into all the thoughts that were on my mind and allow me to reach out and support.
Yes, it’s just a cookie recipe. A really good cookie recipe. Chocolate Dipped Spice Cookies. But, it is just a cookie. Hopefully the blogging community can reach out and send a message that we are supporting them, thinking of them and it will bring them some source of comfort during these very difficult days.
We made these Chocolate Dipped Spice Cookies to give as gifts. We have made them before but I changed up the recipe and added a bit more spice this time and we were pleasantly surprised with how delicious they were – better than before and we already though we had a winning recipe. In fact, my kids apparently thought they were so good, that I had to whip up another batch of the Chocolate Dipped Spice Cookies to take to friends because my teens ate most of them. Ah, the glorious life with 5 hungry teenagers.
These Chocolate Dipped Spice Cookies are absolutely fantastic by themselves. We just decided they might be fun to dip in chocolate and dunk in some bowls of treats. We used a dark chocolate dip and we used crushed walnuts, crushed pecans, chopped Andes Peppermint Crunch and crushed peppermint sticks to dunk them in. But you can dunk them in whatever you want or whatever you happen to have on hand. Or don’t dunk them at all. Just dip them in chocolate. Or don’t. It’s your call. This is really all about the Spice Cookie anyway, and it’s fantastic!
