Tis the season for holiday magic and sweet treats! What better way to celebrate than with a decadent cookie to dip into hot cocoa by the fire?! Today, I am creating a Spiced Eggnog Cookie Sandwich recipe using Chips Ahoy! for the Create, Share, Give. contest. Read on to learn more about his fabulous contest and charitable initiative, and grab my recipe while you’re at it. So put on your aprons and get our your whisks, it is time to get to the mixing.
Before I get to the recipe tutorial, let me tell you a little about this fabulous Create, Share, Give contest. Anyone can enter by creating a unique recipe using one Nabisco product found at Walmart, just like I did today! You can submit your recipe between November 1 – 30th at Walmart.com/createsharegive to enter. Then between December 1 – 4th, the public can vote on their favorite recipe, with the top voted recipe being made into a Tasty Buzzfeed video. Pretty cool, huh?! Best of all, as part of the fun Create,Share,Give program, Nabisco will be providing a $1,000,000 donation to Feeding America. Alright, enough of the technicalities, let’s get back to the recipe tutorial…
Spiced Eggnog Cookie Sandwiches
Time: 20 min.; Yields: 18
What I absolutely love about this recipe is that it looks fancy and complicated, but it is actually super easy to whip up. Let’s walk through the steps together, shall we? In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, cream the softened butter. Then mix in the cloves, nutmeg, and rum extract or bourbon.
Mix in the confectioner’s sugar on a low speed, one cup at a time. This can be a messy affair, so aprons are recommended!
Pour in the eggnog… and pour yourself a glass, while you’re at it. Mix it thoroughly until light and fluffy buttercream frosting is formed.
Scoop the frosting into a pipping bag with a medium frosting tip. Please note, you will have a good amount of frosting left over, so feel free to store the leftovers in the fridge for a later baking adventure. Lay out a Chips Ahoy! cookie and pipe the frosting generously on the flat side. Sandwich with another Chips Ahoy! cookie. Repeat until all cookies are used up.
In a microwave safe bowl, heat up the white chocolate in 15-30 second increments until melted. Mix in-between. Then dip half of each cookie sandwich in the melted chocolate.
Garnish with holiday sprinkles, a fun step to let the little ones in on the recipe fun. Let cookies completely dry and harden.
Then voila, they’re done! Serve with hot cocoa for a magical dipping experience!
