You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen. Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen. But do you recall, the most famous reindeer of all?
It is the second day of the #12DaysOfChristmas series and do I ever have the perfect holiday cookie for you! These chocolate and cherry cookies are named after Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, the true star and hero of Christmas.
In my household, Christmas just isn’t Christmas without these Chocolate Rudolph Cookies. My mom got this recipe from a Christmas Cookie magazine in the 90’s and she has been making them ever since. These fudgy chocolate cookies have a chewy, brownie-like base and are adorned with bright Maraschino cherries (to look like Rudolph’s nose). The richness of the cocoa combined with the sweetness of the Maraschino cherry is an unexpected flavor combination for the holiday season, but it works so well!
Whether you make them for your friends and family, or leave them out for Santa, these cookies are sure to go down in history! 😉
