Fun Cocktails for a Portland Holiday Brunch – Orange Spice Mimosa and Carob Affogato
A couple of lovely brunch drinks to celebrate the holiday season!
You know what? It’s almost the weekend. Sort of. Close enough that we can start talking about all the great food we’re going to indulge in when it gets here, anyway.
May I suggest some decadent cookies? Cookies are always better with pudding in the mix, if you ask me. Nothing makes a softer cookie. And softness is my most important characteristic for a cookie, no matter what the flavor.
Here’s what you will need:
2 1/4 cups of flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 c. butter, softened
3/4 c. packed brown sugar
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1 (3.4 oz) package chocolate instant jell-o pudding
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup caramel pieces, chopped up
Preheat the oven to 350. Cream the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar together, then add the instant pudding. Mix until just combined.
Fold in the flour and baking soda with a spatula, and then fold in the chocolate and caramel last. Bake for 10-12 minutes, and then allow to set up afterward for 5-10 minutes before eating.
