On the fifth day of the 12 Happy Honda Days at Zimbrick Honda, we are hosting a holiday treat recipe exchange!
We love homemade holiday treats. From the basic sugar cookie to the most intricate chocolate/caramel/peanut butter candy. Post your favorite recipe in the comments section below for the chance to win a car care kit and a free oil change!
One of our all-time favorite recipes here at Zimbrick is provided by Julie, who works in our internet sales department:
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 + 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 + 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup bitter cocoa
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
Cherries (1 jar should be more than sufficient – especially if cutting cherries in half)
6 oz chocolate chips
1/2 cup condensed milk
1/4 tsp salt
1 – 1 1/2 tsp cherry juice (we use WAY MORE – so don’t throw the juice out too quick)
For cookies – cream butter, sugar, egg & vanilla. Add remaining dry ingredients. Blend at low speed until dough forms (about 1 minute). Roll 1/2″ – 3/4″ balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Dent each and put cherry in dent (we use 1/2 cherry – round side up).
For glaze - heat chocolate chips and condensed milk over low heat (or microwave) – stir often. Remove from heat. Stir in salt and cherry juice (add more cherry juice if needed to get the right consistency for glazing). Cover cookie w/small amount of glaze. Bake 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees.
