Be sure to unwrap candies while cookies bake. You'll be ready to quickly pop them onto hot cookies. If you don't want to use the coffee liqueur, replace it with 1/4 cup sweetened coffee.
Made these without the almonds (trying to be nut free for a church function) and replaced the liqueur with sweetened coffee. Have to say they were a bit bland. My kids did love them. Will make again but will follow recipe exactly.Read More
Just made these for a bake-off today at work. I had trouble finding instant espresso as I was not sure what I was looking for exactly. I ended up using instant coffee. I now believe it should have been instant espresso powder. I also substituted caramel chocolate kisses for some pop - yummy! If you like coffee, you'll love these cookies. Easy to make also - my 3 year old helped me!Read More
