Dark Chocolate Dipped Funfetti Shortbread Cookies

Dark Chocolate Dipped Funfetti Shortbread Cookies from

I’m on my way to Utah to spend time with friends and I wanted to share these cookies with them (I have some in my carry-on) and with you. I love love sending cookies to friends, been sending a bunch this year. For birthdays, just because, broken bones or just to say hi. I love sending cookies because it’s like sending a little bit of myself to friends who live too far for me to pick up the phone and say let’s get coffee, let’s do lunch THIS WEEK…I can’t be with them in person so I’m sending them a smile.

I love sending them so much, on a whim yesterday, I posted a giveaway on both facebook and instagram…one winner on each site and I’ll send a dozen of these wonderful DoubleTree Hotel Chocolate Chip Cookies! PS If you’re a food blogger, be sure to sign up for the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, sign ups are in full swing and we hope to beat the amount of almost $14,000 raised last year for Cookies for Kid’s Cancer!

These cookies are a variation on Lindsay’s cookies from the cookie swap last year. I tweaked them a little bit and added sprinkles! And chocolate!

A couple of months ago, I went to Asheville for Food Blog Forum and was fortunate to get to meet Jael (co-owner of French Broad Chocolates) and they gave all of the attendees a brick of chocolate. Seriously, amazing…they bring these cookies up another level! I told Jael I will return to Asheville and I will!

Pumpkin Obsessed Vanilla-Glazed Scones + Skinnytaste Cookbook
