Rich, chocolatey coffee Kahlua Mudslide cookies are a fun twist on the classic Kahlua Cocktail.
I received product samples from our awesome sponsors to aid in the creation of this #ChristmasCookies recipe. All opinions are mine alone.
Welcome to the final day of Christmas Cookies Week! If you missed my other two recipes, these Cinnamon Pecan Snickerdoodles are a huge hit and who doesn’t love a chip filled cookie? Chippity Chip Cookies for the win!
On this final day, it is only 42 days left until Christmas.
It’s definitely time to get baking and there is NO shortage of great cookie recipes shared this week.
If you scroll below the recipe, I have included ALL of the cookie recipes shared this week.
These fun cookies are a twist on the super fun Kahlua Mudslide drink.
Why not turn it into a cookie? I mean, how can you not?
It really wasn’t hard to make a soft and moist cookie filled with chocolate chunks and great coffee flavor.
And you don’t even have to keep these away from the kids. In fact, my grandson loves these. lol
These are super simple to make.
You can use any coffee liquor. We just picked Kahlua due to the mudslides.
And feel free to use either coffee powder or espresso powder. It’s all up to you.
You don’t have to use sprinkles, BUT… they make them SO festive and Sweets & Treats has so many great ones to choose from!
