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.

    A week of Oreo recipes!? Oh my goodness. This fudge looks awesome. I love sweet things that include pretzels. Sweet/salty is so delish.

    I love Oreos, too, but I rarely buy them unless it is for a recipe. This looks fantastic. I don’t like pretzels very much, but I guess the other ingredients mask the taste of pretzels that I don’t like. Thanks for this recipe!

    This looks amazing! I like your idea of adding more salt. Did you see that there are pretzel M&Ms now? I bet it would be fun to sprinkle some of those on top!

    More salt? That recipe seems like a perfect candidate for using sea salt! 🙂
