Baileys Chocolate Cookies

These Baileys Chocolate Cookies are so moist, chewy and flavorful, you will not want to share. They have just the right amount of Baileys flavor – not too overpowering, but definitely there. And the white chocolate on the outside gives it that extra boost of chocolate flavor, as well as a bit of crunch and variety in texture.

I think these might be my new favorite cookie. They are definitely the hubs’ new favorite.

I got up last Saturday morning to make them before we left to go do some things that he need to do. I was trying to hurry since I didn’t want to make him late.

I was starting to think I was going to be short on time and have to put the dough in the fridge and finish the other half of the cookies later.

Then he tasted one of the cookies. All of a sudden he was trying to eat all of my cookie dough and steal all of my cookies.

Don’t mess with my cookies. At least not before I take pictures. I will take you down.

I told him the first batch was mine for pictures. If he wanted more cookies, he’d have to wait for the second batch.

So instead of fighting me for them, he decided it was totally worth it to wait the extra 10-15 minutes for me to finish the rest of the cookies.

A cookie worth waiting for? I’d say that’s a good cookie. 🙂

I made these cookies a little smaller than usual. I tend to like big cookies. But since these were going to be dipped in chocolate, I thought smaller would be better. And I totally dug the smaller cookies. I’m sensing a change in my ways…

So the next day, I dipped the cookies in white chocolate and put some super fun St. Patricks Day sprinkles on them. Because duh. Sprinkles make everything better.

Of course the hubs disagrees. He thought it ruined everything. So I left some uncovered for him. He’s clearly crazy.

Then when I tried to share my chocolate covered cookies, he gave me this look like – what are you doing with my cookies? And I’m like, uh, the chocolate covered ones are mine – back off! In a nice way, of course. 🙂

So I managed to get a couple cookies out of the house for my other trusted taste tester’s opinion. I like opinions.

Baileys Chocolate Cookies

The white chocolate was a winner. The cookie was a winner. And even though I made these thinking they’re perfect for St. Patricks Day, they’d really be perfect any day. Because they are awesome. If you like Baileys, chocolate and cookies, there is no way you won’t like these. Unless you like super hard and dry cookies. Then these aren’t for you. 😉
