“It’s so fluffy I’m gonna die!” – Agnes, Despicable Me
Yes, she is talking about a unicorn stuffed animal, but she easily could have been describing these chocolate-dipped cheesecake cookies. They are so soft and moist, plus the almond extract adds a great flavor. I like to stick with recipes that use common ingredients for the most part. The only thing I didn’t already have in our kitchen was the cream cheese. So as long as you have that, it’s an easy recipe to whip up if you have guests coming over or need a tasty gift. For Valentine’s Day you could wrap them in a mason jar. I found these gift tags in the Target dollar aisle and couldn’t pass them up! I love the metallic heart and blush background. I also had some Sugar Paper ribbon left over from Christmas, which matches perfectly. To make them even more festive, you could add some sprinkles to the chocolate part (similar to what I did for these thumbprint cookies). Enjoy!
