A few weeks ago I was sent on an amazing trip to Williamsburg, VA to learn about chocolate history featuring American Heritage Chocolate, which I highly recommend checking out that post. It’s one of my favorite places I’ve ever been to. A group of us bloggers tried so many items made with American Heritage Chocolate, and it is the best chocolate I’ve ever had. Fortunately, I was sent an entire box of their chocolate products to make a yummy recipe from scratch with. Since Christmas is coming up, I went with a holiday type cookie, which of course you can really make these any time of the year, but they scream Christmas and comfort to me!
2 cups of all purpose flour
2 teaspoons of cornstarch
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 1/2 sticks of unsalted butter (3/4 cup) at room temperature
3/4 cup of dark brown sugar
1/4 cup of regular granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
2 ounces of American Heritage Chocolate Block, shaved/cut into small pieces
1 cup of Mint Chocolate M&M’s
Recommendation: I would recommend to refrigerate the cookie dough for at least an hour prior to making the cookies as the batter is very gooey and sticky. You don’t have to, as I didn’t, but I believe it would work better that way.
– Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
– In a mixer, place the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg, and vanilla and mix on a medium speed for approximately 5 minutes.
– Place a tablespoon of batter onto the cookie sheet, and place a mint chocolate M&M on top.
– Bake 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes. The edges should be slightly browned.
– Let sit on cookie sheet after baking for just a few minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack. Remember these are chewy, so they do fall apart easily!
American Heritage Chocolate comes in a few different formats that you can enjoy:
Finely Grated Chocolate Drink
All American Heritage Chocolate products are certified Kosher, made with all-natural ingredients and no preservatives. Our chocolate is fashioned from recipes from 1750 and uses a sprinkling of spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, orange, and red pepper. So, eat, drink, bake and share in historic or modern day recipes… and experience chocolate as our ancestors did with American Heritage Chocolate.
Let me know if you try these cookies, they’re really really good!!!
My whole family and neighbors all loved them and asked me to make more!
