Ohh yes, I went there. That’s right. Kahlúa Mocha Gooey Butter Cookies. And they are goooooood!
I’m a St. Louis girl and we love our Gooey Butter Cake. I have a knack for changing up the traditional cake recipe and making it festive for the season with both my Egg Nog Gooey Butter Cake recipe and Gingerbread Gooey Butter Cake recipe.
But I haven’t tackled Gooey Butter Cookies here yet.
But I did just that. And I didn’t just do it, I did it the right way, I kicked a traditional Gooey Butter Cookie recipe up a notch with delicious Kahlúa Mocha. I love using Kahlúa in my recipes.
It adds flavor in ways that nothing else does. And it’s easy because most of the time it can be used in place of any extracts a recipe calls for.
I have a great chocolate sauce recipe with Kahlúa, that we make all the time in the summer. I have made brownies, muffins, cakes, even a chocolate pie. Some of those very recipes will be making an appearance on my blog in the coming weeks.
But for now, I just want to bask in the glory that is these amazing little gems of Gooey Butter goodness made all the better with that splash of Kahlúa Mocha.
Kahlúa Mocha Gooey Butter Cookies
Oh but wait! That’s not all! Don’t go yet.
I also have a wonderful recipe for…. another perfect Kahlúa drink!
Creamy Chocolate Kahlúa Martini
1 1/2 parts Kahlúa (any flavor)
1/2 part vodka
1 1/4 parts half and half
1 1/4 parts chocolate milk
In a shaker filled with ice, mix all four ingredients and shake well. Pour into a chilled martini glass and serve topped with whipped cream and sweetened cocoa powder, cinnamon or nutmeg. You can also use chocolate shavings on top.
