The most wonderful time of the year is finally here, what I like to call wonderful glorious heavenly holiday baking season! Not only is it a time when being a food blogger with lots and lots of baking and dessert recipes means business is booming, but it also means my afternoons are spent in the kitchen with my two loves: flour and sugar. That is my favorite way to spend an afternoon! That plus binge-watching my favorite TV show and playing with my dogs. Baking is just such a fantastic stress reliever and the best part is that after all the work is done your house likely smells incredible and you have a scrumptious treat to enjoy and give to friends and family. Watching someone’s face wash over with joy once you surprise them with a treat is just the best, right?!
These little chocolate gems of holiday goodness were created for Imperial Sugar and are perfect for Thanksgiving celebrations and they make wonderful Christmas Cookies. I’m so excited to share that I will be partnering with Imperial Sugar every month to bring you a new amazing sweet recipe, which is just another excuse for me to bake up a storm in the kitchen!
If you make these Chocolate Pecan Tassies, be sure to take a picture and tag it #handletheheat on Instagram. Happy baking!
Taste: Like pecan pie meets a chocolate cookie, otherwise known as heaven!
Texture: Crunchy, crumbly, gooey, rich, and all-around wonderful.
Ease: Super easy! The most time consuming part is forming the chocolate dough to the mini muffin tin holes, but it’s nothing a little festive music can’t make more fun!
Appearance: These tassies are just adorable, and that chocolate drizzle on top is enough to make your mouth water.
Pros: Fun chocoholic twist on this beloved holiday cookie.
Would I make this again? For sure!
