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.

    These look SO good. I was actually looking for s’mores _____ because I wanted to bake something with chocolate and marshmallows. These may be just the thing!

    So freakin cute, I love them, so would my boys. Just today, Liam was picking up sticks in the yard and asked if he could start a fire so that he could make smores. I kid you not. He is 5. Where do they get these ideas?

    Adorable Jen! Thanks so much!

    These are so wrong, but so right! That batch would be seriously unsafe in my house. They’d have to be given away immediately or I’d risk eating every last one and never fitting in my pants again.

    These will be perfect for an upcoming family vacation. We’re not camping, but are renting a house with a fire pit and we usually spend every night out there making s’mores. I can easily make the cupcakes beforehand and then we can roast the marshmallows outside. It will be something cute and different. Thanks for this recipe!!!
