White Chocolate Dipped Molasses Cookies

White Chocolate Dipped Molasses Cookies

Can you believe it’s only two weeks left until Christmas?  Time is flying by this year and before we know it, it’s going to be 2013!  This year I’m really looking forward to being off for two weeks (the nice perk about working in a school!).  Our family isn’t traveling anywhere this year so it’ll be nice to relax at home with family visiting us over the holidays.  One tradition that we do is getting together Christmas Eve with family and friends.  Our kitchen island gets filled with great appetizers, snacks and desserts while everyone shares a drink (or two!) in celebration of the holidays.  Every year since I can remember we’ve always had Meat Pie on Christmas Eve.  This year we decided to change things up a bit and do a spiral ham with scalloped potatoes!  That’s one thing I never make, and I don’t know why, because when I have it I always wonder why we don’t have it more often!

White Chocolate Dipped Molasses Cookies

This year I participated in The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap and I decided to make these Molasses Cookies.   I received some amazing cookies as well.  I got Chocolate Dipped Walnut Shortbread from Food Mamma, Raspberry Thumbprint Shortbread from The Gourmet Housewife, and Double Chocolate Espresso cookies from Savour Sisters.  Please check out their blogs – you’ll be amazed at all the great talent out there!   All these cookies are packed away in the freezer for the upcoming Christmas holidays!  Thanks so much to all the wonderful bloggers who participated this year.  I’m already thinking of ideas for next year!

Cheddar Bacon Quick Bread | A Sweet Baker

Cheddar Bacon Quick Bread

It’s been so long since I’ve posted last that I actually feel refreshed and energized to get back into the swing of things. Around my neck of the woods the weather has really cooled down and Fall is definitely around the corner. My kids pointed out yesterday the leaves are changing on the trees…..arrgghhh! But, […]

Cherry Upside-down Cake + Two Giveaways!

It’s cherry season where I live and that means we’ve been stuffing our faces with fresh cherries! I’ve never made an upside-down cake before so when I had two bags of cherries in my fridge I set out to make this Cherry Upside-down Cake.  I’m sure glad I did because it was A-MAZ-ING! The funny […]

Can you believe that summer is FINALLY here?  My family has been looking forward to summer ever since…….well, let’s be honest, last September!  There’s no better time to hang out with friends, go on road trips or have a delicious BBQ with family.  One of our favourite dishes to do on the BBQ is this […]

Sour Cream Dill Pickle Dip | A Sweet Baker

Sour Cream Dill Pickle Dip #GayLeaFoods

Now that summer’s in full swing it seems like the kids can’t get enough of things to snack on.  I always have fresh veggies and fruit on hand but lately we’ve all been tempted by a not-so-healthy snack – chips!   I’m a flavoured chip kinda girl but on occasion I like to indulge in […]

S'mores Chex Mix | A Sweet Baker

S’mores Chex Mix (Gluten Free) #SummerWithChex

Yeah!!!  It’s officially S’more Season and I can’t wait to eat my share of S’mores and S’more-inspired treats (like this S’mores Chex Mix) this summer! There’s nothing  better than sitting around a campfire and toasting up marshmallows and squishing them between a piece of chocolate and two cookies!  Who wouldn’t love that?   But, if […]

Chicken & Veggie Spring Rolls | A Sweet Baker

Chicken & Veggie Spring Rolls #BlueDragonMom

Whenever we go out for Chinese Food I always make sure to order Spring Rolls.  They’re one of my favourite things on the menu and I love dipping them in a sweet sauce. I never thought that making my own Chicken & Veggie Spring Rolls at home would be so easy.  I had these delicious […]

  1. I made some dipped molasses cookies like these a little while ago and I think they’re now one of my favorite cookies! Love the sprinkles you used on yours!

    • Thanks Loretta! I checked out your blog today too and I can’t find a way to follow you – FB, Twitter, or Bloglovin? I did follow your Pinterest boards, though!

      • Thanks Lizzy!

        Since my blog is new and I’m just trying to get a handle on things, I haven’t put much into other social media yet. You can always get my email updates or through RSS. Those are right in my sidebar. My next step is setting something up on Facebook…

    I love Molasses cookies! I am a gingersnap, molasses cookie kinda of gal. I love that you dipped these in White Chocolate.

  3. I love the look of dipped cookies!

  4. I am such a fan of molasses cookies and yours are so pretty. My Mom use to freeze stuff to be sure it stuck around for Christmas, but we were all on to it and we’d regularly raid the freezer. Might want to put a lock on that freezer ;)

  5. Eek, is Christmas really so close? I haven’t bought anything yet so panicking is an understatement LOL!

    But enough of that, I’ll take my stress away with a whole batch of these bad boys please. I love the combo of the sweet, creamy white chocolate with the sharp flavour of the molasses. We don’t get molasses here, only treacle, which I read is *very* close to molasses. But you get so many different varieties, it’s hard to tell which variety of molasses treacle is actually close to.

    They’re so pretty and festive too.

  6. molasses and white chocolate are an unbeatable pair! I first had the two together years ago and I revisited it last month with my white chocolate chip molasses cookies. amazing! The dipping idea and all those sprinkles. glorious! These cookies wouldn’t last long around me, that’s for sure.

  7. I love the added touch of dipping the cookies in white chocolate!

  8. Another fantastic white chocolate-dipped cookie ;)! I am sure that whoever received these cookies was very excited!

  9. These are at the top of my ‘to make’ list. Incredible! XO

  10. Oh these look heavenly! Love that you dipped in chocolate!

  11. I’m totally with you – I can’t believe Christmas is so close! I’m already getting sad that Christmas music will be off the radio, lol. So you probably won’t believe me, but I’ve never had molasses cookies. I know, crazy! Maybe I’ll have to fix that with these cookies!!

  12. Oh yummmm!! We have a cookie exchange this Saturday and these would be perfect!! I’m hosting a recipe link up today…would love you have you share! :)

  14. I love molasses cookies. What a great idea to dip them in chocolate!

  15. I love the glaze they really make the cookies festive. Thanks for sharing them on foodie friday.

  16. Oh they look delicious! I love molasses cookies anyway, but with the glaze they sound and look twice as good!
    Thank you so much for sharing this at Wednesday Extravaganza – Hope to see you there again this week :)

  17. These look like the perfect Christmas treat!! Love the white chocolate on them too!
