While I’m taking a break from baking to by with my soldier and my family, the wonderful Toni from Make Bake Celebrate is here to share her recipe for Chocolate Drizzled Cookie Sticks!
A heartfelt thank you goes to Toni for helping me out this week! Please, show her all kinds of love and visit her sweet blog, Make Bake Celebrate!
Hi! I’m Toni from Make Bake Celebrate, a blog full of bright and cheery easy to make treats! And I’m so excited to be filling in for Betsy today here on Java Cupcake. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Betsy for some time now, not only as bloggy buddies but as fellow Army wives as well! It’s not everyday that you come across somebody who shares your passion for cupcakes, frosting, and combat boots! In case you haven’t heard, Betsy welcomed home her hero this week!
I can honestly say I’ve been in that same spot and let me tell you no amount of sprinkles in the world could pull me down from the clouds in the days that surround homecoming. So when Betsy asked me if I could stop by and share a little something sweet here at Java Cupcake while she spends a little time with those who matter most – I practically had my piping bag ready!
But before we get to the yumminess I would like to say WELCOME HOME to Dave!! As well as CONGRATS to Betsy, you did it and you’re stronger then ever.
While I was going over my “to bake” list to pick something to share with you guys I was looking for something fitting to Java Cupcake, but Betsy said, “No way, pick something that’s totally you!.” (What she really meant was covered in sprinkles) Let’s hope she was serious because these chocolate cookies bars are totally me. Chocolate, more chocolate, yummy, cute, crazy easy, and well you know – covered in sprinkles. Like all of my favorite things wrapped into one! I’ve been wanting to make these every since I made these Birthday Cake Cookie Bars last year. They were a big hit, and a chocolate version only seemed natural!
So if you’re looking for a step by step tutorial to help you out on these you can always follow the same directions from the Birthday Cake Cookies Bars and just swap out for the recipe listed below.
I really love how these Chocolate Drizzled Cookie Sticks came out and just how fun and festive they can be! They start with an easy rolled chocolate cookie, cut, baked, then drizzle on some melted milk chocolate, toss on some sprinkles and you’re done! A simple treat to impress.
Thanks so much Betsy for inviting me over to Java Cupcake, and I hope you guys enjoyed my post! If you guys want to head on over and say hello over at my place I would love to have you – you can never have too many buttercream loving friends!
Chocolate Drizzled Cookie Sticks
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small mixing bowl whisk together flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder. Set aside.
- Chop up cold butter into little chunks. Place in bowl of electric mixer and cream on medium until light and fluffy. Add in sugar and whip until fully combined.
- Add in egg, beat, then add in vanilla, beat. Slowly add in flour mixture and mix until dough has formed into one large chunk. (Dough will be crumbly at first, keep mixing! If needed remove from mixture and work together with hands just a bit)
- Divide dough into two parts and place one half in the fridge wrapped in clear wrap. Roll the other half out between two pieces of wax paper to desired thickness. Use a pizza cutter to cut strips of cookie about 1.5in X 3.5in. Gently transfer cookie bars onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and place in freezer for 2 minutes. (This will help keep the cookie’s shape)
- Bake cookies for 9-11 minutes, remove from oven and carefully slide parchment paper and all on to cooling wrack. Repeat with remaining dough until it is gone.
- Once cookies have cooled remove parchment paper from under cookies and place under the cooling rack. (so you can now drizzle your chocolate and the paper will catch the mess) Melted melting chocolate and drizzle over cookies. Add sprinkles if you would like. I pour my melted chocolate into a decorators bottle to make the process very fast and easy. Let chocolate firm before serving.
