Molasses Fudge Cookies

December is the best of the winter months in my opinion. Yes, it’s steadily becoming more and more freezing (like the horrible temperature today here in Boston). But the festive nature of the month brings such an amazing energy that the weather often gets overshadowed, and the holiday spirit is there in full force.

That is also why this is one of my favorite months for Healthy Food Friday with American Express. Not only do I get to share with you holiday eats (I’m talking about COOKIES), but I get to give you gift giving ideas for your loved ones! Last week I gave you printable labels for all of your edible gifts, so this week, let’s get to some cookies that you can give out!

I recently started going to a new gym (I’ll eventually share more on this). I’ve been there for one week and already have met such wonderful people! Why do I bring this up? Because I brought these cookie sandwiches for some of them to try, and they said they would go out and buy them in a store, and that they wouldn’t have known they were gluten-free, dairy-free, and paleo-friendly. Winning! Aside from those lovely words, these got tons of other thumbs up, too!

Molasses Fudge Cookies

These cookies are: soft, perfectly spiced, and lightly sweetened. That plus the center of fudge… you have yourself an epic holiday cookie sandwich!

    1. Can’t wait to make these! I am not a baker, so when you say chocolate, do you mean bakers chocolate or just a dark chocolate bar?

    2. What does the (minus nuts and additional chocolate chips) in line 3 or instructions mean? There is no mention of this in the Ingredients list above the Fudge ingredients.
