Tres Leches Caketini

tres leches caketini 6a

It’s Friday!  After the day I had yesterday (including crashing my blog), I thought a cocktail recipe was in order, don’t you think?  And since tomorrow is my birthday, I thought a “caketini” was the perfect way to celebrate both my birthday and the weekend!  Today’s cocktail is a Tres Leches Caketini inspired by the Tres Leches Cake  which is a cake that has been soaked with three types of milk/cream.  Some of my Snappy Gourmet Facebook friends have been asking for a new cocktail so I hope you enjoy it!  And if you do enjoy it, let me know by leaving me a comment below!  Would love to hear from you!

Mexican Hot Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Welcome to cookie #4 of my holiday cookiepalooza! Today’s cookie is my Mexican Hot Chocolate Sandwich Cookies. These cookies are one of my favorites and full of dark chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, almonds, and cajeta (caramel).  I used my homemade cajeta, but you can use store-bought or a thick caramel. If you’re new to Snappy Gourmet, I’ve been taking the dough from my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe and using it to make different kinds of cookies.  So easy taking one dough and making a variety of cookies!   I’m all for saving time especially this time of year! These Mexican Hot Chocolate Sandwich Cookies are also great if you just want drop cookies and don’t want to make them into “sandwiches” with a filling.  Hope you enjoy them!
