How's everyone doing this week? 4 days til Santa comes down the chimney! Not that anyone's counting or anything. If you're still revving up those ovens this weekend I have one more cookie recipe for you. Santa will definitely love these babies too. Because chocolate. And coffee. And hazelnuts. See where I'm heading with this?
Jam thumbprints are cute and all, but given the choice I'll go for mocha any day of the week. Crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside, these hazelnut coated chocolate cookies get a swirl of mocha coconut cream ganache. So basically a truffle inside of a damn good cookie to begin with.
I was inspired by this recipe I came across on pinterest from Sarah of Gold Lining Girl. I adapted the cookie to be vegan and used my go to ganache recipe made with coconut cream and this time flavored with coffee for the filling. These are not overly sweet and are definitely for the dark chocolate lovers out there. They would be amazing with an after dinner espresso or cappuccino. And of course perfect to gift in a holiday cookie plate. I think I'm going to make another batch of these over the weekend just for us.
Before I send you down to the recipe I just want to say a big Thank You to all of you who've come to the blog, read and tried the recipes.
