“Scooter, what cookies did you make for work tomorrow?” he asked.
“Molasses spice cookies dipped in white chocolate,” I answered.
“Scooter, why are you making those? It’s not Christmas yet!” was the reply.
You’re right Nate – it’s not Christmas…not yet. But it’s always Christmas in my heart (cheeseball)!
All I have to say is that you know you’ve hit the jackpot when you Google “spicy molasses cookies” and the first recipe that pops up is from The Pioneer Woman.
You know you’ve hit a double jackpot (is there such a thing?!) when you have the same idea as her to coat said cookies in melted white chocolate.
You can find the recipe for the cookies by clicking here. HOWEVER, I will say that I was pretty worried about the whole melted white chocolate thing.
See, what had happened was the last time I tried to melt chocolate chips of any kind they turned into a big ball of flaky burned chocolate.
Something tells me this is not desirable. I don’t know where I got that conclusion…
The secret though is to melt them in the microwave over really low heat just a little at a time. To melt my chips, I just added half the bag to a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on 30% power for 20 seconds. Stir and repeat until all the chocolate is melted and dippable. Then dip, baby, dip to your heart’s content!
Hope you guys have a fabulous day! I will be traveling all morning and won’t be around, but look forward to hearing all of the “Tootsie Roll” lyrics from the aforementioned reference in the comments 🙂
