A delicious and unexpected flavor combination in these Chocolate Espresso Cranberry Bars. Super simple to make – let’s get started!
We haven’t made cookie trays for the holidays in a few years, but this past Christmas, I was a little motivated. Mostly because I think we all needed a little extra cheer … and an activity to distract us from everything that’s going on in the world.
I took a scan through my blog to pull out a few tried-and-trues and made a plan. When I was grabbing ingredients from the store, I noticed that Nestle has a new espresso chocolate chip, and that’s what got the wheels turning for this recipe.
I ended up including seven different items on the various trays we delivered, and this cookie bar was the clear favorite (followed closely by the favorite Mexican Wedding Cookies).
The recipe comes together fairly quickly and the bars cut neatly if you’re patient enough to let them sit for a bit. A few extra ingredients and an afternoon baking in the kitchen and you can soon be enjoying these as well. They would be cute in little Valentine’s Day treat boxes to spread a little extra love next month!
