Kahlua Mudslide Cookies

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!
