Candy Cane Cookies and a poem.

"I Ate My Best Friend"
Written especially for me for this blog for you, by J.

7:50a.m., I’m walking out the door to school and smelling something good
Thinking about checking it out, decide I probably should
Now in front of a counter, I can’t believe my eyes
Millions of cookies and suddenly I’m hypnotized

No, just kidding, there’s only fifteen
A “Do Not Touch” sign lies in between
The double-chocolate chip one and the frosted sugar cookie
These cookies look just great, I think that I’ll play hookie

Going for a swim in melted white chocolate. I'm jealous

8:15a.m., and I’ve only eaten three
Three isn’t many, but if you only knew me
You’d be confused too, thinking I’d have eaten them all by now
But these cookies aren’t normal, they’re giant so I don’t know how

A sprinkling of crushed candy canes.

9 a.m., and I wish I never learned how to eat at all
Too full to move, accidentally ran into a wall and fell down in the hall
I didn’t know what a “food coma” was before, now I definitely do
And since there’s no one around to ask “Why’d you let me eat them all?”
Cookies, I blame you

Feeling bad for whoever decided to bake, because they don’t have a clue
No, Cookie, they don’t have a clue that I ate all of you
And now you’re all gone, crumbs all over the place
Whoever made you, Cookie, I’m definitely afraid to face

(The recipe for these cookies was found here. I made them bite-sized and drowned them in white chocolate. Everything should be drowned in white chocolate, don'cha think?)


  1. Stephanie, you take the most beautiful food photos! Gotta check out that recipe.

  2. Haha great poem! I have all the ingredients for these cookies and had every intention of making them Christmas Eve for Santa but got distracted and had a huge urge for Mexican Wedding cakes instead. So I have yet to get around to these but I think this weekend is the time. Beautiful pics!

  3. OMG! I made them too this past week, except just dipped them halfway in the almond bark. They were so yummy and cute! looked like little (brown)Santas with hats.

  4. oh my gosh, it all looks so good. I'm hungry now.

  5. Thanks, all, for the love!DVM's Wife I have a confession. I made these twice. The first time I dipped them halfway. But the chocolate cookie just wasn't sweet enough for me. However, the second time I made them, I made the cookies smaller (bite-sized) and dunked them. Although delicious, it may have been too much. I think next time (oh, yes, there will be a next time) I'll make them bite sized, but only partially dip them. They were delicious while they lasted.

  6. I think I will have to try my hand at these tomorrow. They look so good.Thanks for stopping by my blog and the Congrats on our win. We are an unusual family, I am the sports nut and my husband just kind of tolerates it. LOLCece

  7. Those cookies look wonderfully delicious! Great photos too. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hope you stop by again.

  8. Thank god your cookies live on the other side of the country from Miss Carol and me, 'cause otherwise we would have a serious problem.

  9. Oh, YUM! Yes, I don't think there's any good thing that can't be made even better by dipping it in white chocolate.
