A Sweet Little Indulgence

This recipe is not healthy and it is definitely not appropriate for children, but I couldn’t help from sharing because these cookies are just that good.  To accommodate the rebel nature of this recipe, I’ve created a new series on my blog – “Momma Treats.”

I have no reservations when it comes to a good cookie.  When I find a recipe that I like, I can easily eat a dozen in one day (ahem, one sitting…).  And as far as deadly cookies go, these ones are pretty dynamite.  As many of you know I am a sucker for all things Irish, so when I stumbled upon this recipes on somethingswanky.com (link).  I added my own little flare to the recipe with some changes and additions, and I am eager to try an oatmeal version in the future (which I will of course share).  Without further ado – I present the ultimate adult indulgence.


Bailey’s Irish Cream Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

There's nothing better than mixing a little Irish cream to a sweet recipe in my opinion, and when you mix that with three different kinds of chocolate, the result is magic to the senses.  These are the perfect cookies to impress your friends with or to simply treat yourself on a cozy winter night!

Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup butter (4 Tablespoons)
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ½ cup cane sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup Bailey’s Original Irish Cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup dark chocolate, chopped
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • Unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)
  • Walnuts, chopped (optional)

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350.

In a bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the butter and coconut oil.  Add the sugars and beat together until creamy.  Add the egg, Bailey’s and vanilla and mix well.

In a separate medium sized bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.

Slowly combine dry and wet mixtures just until dough forms.  Pour chocolate chips into the bowl and mix together evenly using a wooden spoon.

Scoop dough onto a cookie sheet in Tablespoon sized scoops and bake for 12-14 minutes.


I will not waste your time with nutritional info, because let’s be real – these aren’t healthy.  However, I firmly believe that something sweet every once in awhile and for a special occasion (super bowl Sunday!) is good for the soul.  Give them a try and let me know what you think!
