Plush chocolate cookie bites laced with spicy bourbon, then topped with boozy chocolate covered cherry candies make these adult-y treats a tantalizing experience during the holiday season!
  • ¾ cup butter, room temperature
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup bourbon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 & ¼ cups all purpose flour
  • 24 chocolate covered amaretto cherries
  • 1 pkg Wilton Chocolate Cherry Candy Melts
  • 1 pkg Andes Chocolate Cherry Jubilee Candies, roughly chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally grease a 24" cavity mini muffin tin with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the butter and sugars until creamy. Stir in the cocoa powder. Add the vanilla, bourbon and egg and beat to combine. Gradually add the baking soda, salt and flour to incorporate until a soft but somewhat sticky dough forms.
  3. Portion one heaping Tablespoonful of dough into each mini muffin cavity. Bake for approx. 8-10 minutes or until tops appear set and rounded. Cool for about 5 minutes in the pan, then immediately press a chocolate covered amaretto cherry into the center of each cookie cup. Allow the cups to cool.
  4. Remove the cups and place on a wire rack with a sheet of wax paper underneath. Melt the Wilton chips according to package directions until smooth. Drizzle the chocolate on top of the cookie bites and immediately sprinkle with the chopped candy pieces. Let set for about 10 minutes, then serve!
