Bailey’s Irish Cream Dipped Cookies

This awesome chocolate cookie comes to us thanks to Gramma – although, Gramma put chopped walnuts in this cookie recipe.  She put walnuts in EVERYTHING she baked, and assumed I loved nuts in my treats. I didn’t – I actually hate walnuts.  But I loved that she put heart and love into them, so I ate them and never ever complained. 🙂  Still, her chocolate cookie recipe is SO rich and delicious… it will become your favorite!

How exciting is it that Bailey’s released baking chips!?  These Bailey’s Original Irish Cream Baking Chips (no alcohol in them) are awesome! They offer that creamy, nutty, slightly tangy flavor of original Irish cream, so I knew they would be fun for something creative when baking.  I didn’t want to be basic and use them as chips in a boring cookie…. so I dipped Gramma’s chocolate cookies in a ganache made out of the chips!

The recipe below will make about 24 cookies.  These are super sweet and very flavorful – bet you can’t eat just one!

What you need:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 3/4 cup gram cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 6 ounces (1/2 of a 12 oz bag) Bailey’s Irish Cream Baking Chips 
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream

Make them:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add egg and vanilla, and beat another minute.

Beat in cocoa.

In a small bowl, whisk the graham cracker crumbs, flour, baking powder and salt.

Slowly add it to the creamed mixture, until well combined.

Using 1/2 inch cookie scoop, create balls, then flatten balls with the bottom of a glass.  I spray the bottom of the glass with cooking spray so it doesn’t stick.

Bake 7-9 minutes, then cool completely on cooling rack.

Make the Irish cream ganache:

Melt the heavy whipping cream in the microwave until hot, but not boiling (about 30-40 seconds).  Add the Irish cream chips, and use a whisk to stir until melted and creamy.

Dip one side of each cookie in the ganache and let cool on a cooling rack.

ENJOY!!

How about making some more fun treats?
