Fudge cookies for gender reveal party!

Posted on

So my cousin Erika messaged me this week asking for ideas for a gender-reveal party she’s throwing this spring.  For those of you uninformed folks (as I was a week ago)– a gender reveal party is where you break the “It’s a boy/girl” news to all your friends and family at a fun party.  I say– what better way to deliver good news than in a dessert??!!??  So I went to work and I have several ideas you will likely see here in the coming weeks.

Idea#1— a recycled recipe tweaked for the occasion.  Remember my chocolate bonbons?  Fun little fudge cookies with a hershey kiss inside.   Instead of a kiss, how about colored white chocolate?  Here you go:

INGREDIENTS:

  • 40-50 Wilton candy melt pieces in BLUE or PINK
  • 8 oz. Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • 1 bag (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • Additional Wilton White Candy Melts
    for decorating as desired.

DIRECTIONS:

  • Soften Philadelphia cream cheese in microwave until completely smooth.
  • Melt chocolate chips in microwave in 30 second increments, stirring well in between.
  • Add cream cheese to melted chocolate and blend well.
  • Add flour and vanilla and stir into a thick dough consistency.
  • Flatten about 1 tbs. of dough in your palm, place 2 candy melts (flat sides together) in the center and gently wrap the dough around the melts until they are completely covered.
  • Flatten dough and shape into an Oreo shaped and sized cookie and place on an un-greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake cookies at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove warm cookies from cookie sheet and place on parchment paper (they will be a little greasy on the bottom, the parchment paper helps with this)
  • Decorate as desired- I dipped the entire top of the cookie in melted white candy melts and then piped two small circles on the top.  Dragging the tip of a toothpick through the circles while they are still melted makes them into hearts (aww….)  Easy and fun!

Not expecting a baby?  Make these with pink or red melts inside and pink and red hearts on top for a fun and festive Valentines Day treat!

ENJOY!!
