Spirited Chocolate Chip Cookies

Total Time

I went to a Christmas party at a friends house this year and among the treats were these little gems. Filled with chocolate chips, nuts, and spiked with kahlua, they are a little party in your mouth. I got the recipe just today and immediately made a batch. The recipe called generically for nuts and I always associate walnuts with chocolate chips, but I was out. I did have plenty of almonds and I am so glad I did. What a great combination of flavors!

  • 1 cup brown sugar, lightly packed

Mmmm, nice cookies. This made 41 cookies and they baked for 9 minutes. Crunchy on the edges, soft in the middle. Used slivered almonds but will try them with walnuts too.
Thanks for posting.

Love these little morsels of deliciousness. I had some macadamia nuts, so used them as my choice. Nice and chocolaty. Made for Every Day Holiday Tag. :)

YUM! I made this with 1/2 cup Splenda brown sugar blend and whole wheat flour. They turned out kinda crunchy and very yummy! The almonds are a nice touch. Made for the Zaar tag game.
