Boozy Butterscotch Chocolate Cookies

In my last post, I talked about my February assignment for Secret Recipe Club - Jessie Weaver, The Vanderbilt Wife.  I decided to make the Honey Parmesan Pork from her blog, but also really wanted to make the Boozy Chocolate Butterscotch Cookies... so I did!

The cookies were actually really easy to make - just melt chocolate chips and butter together (it will be a thicker mixture); then add to a beaten mixture of brown sugar, eggs, butterscotch schnapps, and vanilla; then add flour, baking powder, and salt.  Let the mixture sit to firm up, then scoop onto baking sheets.

Bake for 10-15 minutes, and you're done!  I thought these tasted fudgey like brownies, and they were a big hit at my game night.

Food ‘n Flix – Hocus Pocus (Candy Corn Jello Shots)

Well Dined | Candy Corn Jello Shots

This month's Food and Flix selection was Hocus Pocus, hosted by The Lawyer's Cookbook - a perfect flick for Halloween!  This movie came out when I was 8 years old, and I loved it.  I hadn't seen it in years, and it was interesting going back and watching it as an adult - I still found it to be a lot of fun.  I also noticed that the director was Kenny Ortega - aka the director of High School Musical, ha!  My favorite character is definitely Sarah Jessica Parker, she is so goofy and I love her singing in this film.  Amok! Amok! Amok!

Anywho, I had been wanting to make candy corn themed jello shots for a while, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity!  (Although, I despise actual candy corn - yuck.)  I didn't like a lot of the recipes out there using orange and lemon jello, the flavors just didn't seem right to me.  So I opted to start with a white liquor (Rumchata) and get my colors with food dye.  I added in some butterscotch schnapps for extra deliciousness, too.  I used equal amounts of each color, but that resulted in a really big white layer, so I have adjusted the amounts in the recipe below to better represent the appearance candy corn.
