Vegan Sugar Free Chocolate Rum Cookies

I love cookie swaps. They’re so fun. You show up with cookies of one kind and leave with cookies of a bunch of different kinds. I actually did one cookie swap with friends in December, signed up for one that Kathy planned, but ended up not being able to go, planned on the blogger swap last weekend that I also couldn’t attend, AND, signed up to do an online swap. Yea, like I said, I like cookie swaps.

I enjoy doing online swaps because you’re sending and receiving a bunch of one kind of cookie! I have participated in steph chow‘s jam exchange in the past, so when she said she was going to do a cookie exchange, I instantly signed up.

My partner in cookie-ing is Sarah. She’s vegan so I set out to find a vegan cookie recipe. I actually had a hard time finding something that looked good to me that was vegan that also wouldn’t require me to purchase some ingredients that I would never use again… But alas, I found this cookie that also happens to be sugar free. And it has rum in it! Even better. The cookies had a good chocolate flavor and actually reminded me of truffles or fudge with some rum thrown into the mix.

    Now I think bacon wrapped dates are amazing… but stuffed with goat cheese & almond?! Yum! I wish I knew of this before my Tapas party last weekend 🙂

    Okay, so I had these babies at a party in rural Massachusetts this weekend, and I have no idea who made them (they were part of a HUGE spread and like 100 people brought food), and I’m wondering, given your proximity, whether or not I may have possibly eaten your delights unknowingly?

    Aleta – it was not me, although it sounds like a great party. These always get gobbled up anywhere we take them!

    do you think these would be good at room temperature?

    I am going to an outdoor concert next week and wanted to bring some finger food!

    These are awesome at room temperature. We’ve made them a ton. You can make them and refrigerate for a couple days before grilling/broiling, you can also go ahead and cook them just leave them at room temperature. I prefer them at room temperature actually.

    Would you imagine using some milder-tasting cheese like Brie tasting good?
