Y’all know about my love of food challenges right?  We’ve talked about it.  And if you’ve ever stopped by for one of my monthly ingredient challenge recipes like my lemon curd, apple chips, or stuffed bacon cheeseburgers then you know it gets like all Iron Chef up in here.  And those girls are just like my good bloggy friends.  What happens when my best bloggy friends and I get together?  We pick a theme, usually something pretty broad, and all make something that fits in that theme.  And it goes hog wild!

I know what you’re thinking.  But, I don’t always do a recipe!  Sometimes, like with these kraft paper envelopes, I do a craft instead.  I’m back to my old comfortable-like-a-favorite-pair-of-jeans ways with this one though and bringing you a delicious cookie recipe that’s perfect for this month’s theme.  Picnics.

Now, I dunno about you buuuuut I’m not really a picnic person.  I know, I know, I know.  But.  Hear me out.  These cookies are perfect.  Perfect, I say!  For picnics.  They’re fudgey and rich and they won’t melt when you leave them in your picnic basket to go play football or soccer or whatever people who like to go on picnics do when they’re not eating.  What do people do on picnics while they’re not eating?

Anyway, these cookies have Coke in them.  As in Coca Cola.  When I got to experiment with some Coke recipes for a care package for my family I tried reducing some down to a syrup and adding it to these cookies and O.M.G.  That syrup took these babies to the next LEVEL!  Legit.

I’ve made them with and without the syrup and the popular vote says the syrup stays.  Now, are they gross and disgusting and inedible without the syrup?  Uh, no!  They’re still absolutely amazing.  But in the way that just a hint of coffee you can’t even taste delivers an oomph to chocolate so does Coke to these cookies.  Do it.  Doooooo iiiiiiiit.  And then thank me later.  And then make a double batch and keep half for yourself in the back of the cabinet and the rest in the picnic basket.  Because they’re just that good.

What’s your favorite thing to take on a picnic?

My cookies tasted good, but didn’t look like yours- they looked like regular chocolate cookies

Can you use the cola syrup you get at the pharmacy for nausea instead of reducing regular coke??!

So I am assuming the Coke reduction needs to be completely cool?

It doesn't need to be cooled all the way down to room temperature but you'll want to let it stand 5-10 minutes to thicken before creaming it in with the butter and sugar.

Mmm You need to make more of these! SO good, and I definitely loved the version with the coke reduction better!! Just need some fudge frosting on the next batch :-)

Right? That coke takes it out of this world! And yes to the frosting. So after we eat all the chocolate chip cookies I'm about to make we'll make some more of these!
