Are you a cookie dunker? If you are, lets gather around and stand together so that we may be comforted by being in the presence of like-minded company. :) Or do you have some other favorite food that you fancy dunking in milk, coffee or tea? I don’t eat cookies very often but I have been known to enjoy a good dunk. As a little girl, I remember being at my great grandparents home when my dad took me out for a snowmobile ride. By the time we got back to the house, and the thrill of the ride had passed, we realized that we were chilled to the bone.
Bless great gramma’s heart… she had anticipated this and had hot chocolate steaming on the stove-top for us and a plate piled high with buttered toast. We sat around the table, sipping our hot chocolate and dipping our toast into it. May sound like an odd combination but it was heavenly. If you have a favorite combination of dunking… I love to hear it.
You might often see coffee being added to chocolate recipes. Whether it be brewed coffee, instant coffee granules or coffee extract. The reason is not necessarily to create a coffee flavor but rather to enhance the chocolatly flavor. By the way, I also added 2 Tbsp of beet juice. First, let me put your mind at ease, you won’t even detect the beet flavor in the cookie. I love beets, but trust me, I don’t want to eat a beet flavored cookie. Not only do beets add some good nutrients, they also deepen the rich chocolate-brown color.
