In our house, Saturdays are football Saturdays. We all gather in the living room and enjoy cheering on our favorite teams. For the first time ever, our two teams played each other, and oh man was it intense! I seriously thought the Mister was going to cry when our alma mater won!
My most favorite part of football isn’t the games, the excitement, or even the uniforms (let’s be real, I notice those things). My favorite part of football is the food.
Back in September we took our kids to a high school football game, and I had the most amazing scone at the stadium! And when the Mister and I went to the homecoming game for our alma mater last month, I had one of the stadium’s famous cougar tails. It was delicious and brought back lots of memories of football games at the stadium!
When we aren’t able to make it to the games, we love tailgating at home. I LOVE coming up with new recipes that are perfect for game day, and I love snacking on tailgating food all day long. For one of the games last year I set up a snack table, and it quickly became one of my favorite things to do. It’s what makes my family one of a kind fans!
A few weeks ago I decided to come up with a new recipe using one of my favorite sodas, Dr Pepper. It took a few tries before I figured it out, but the resulting cookies were 100% worth it! Introducing, Chocolate Glazed Dr Pepper Cookies.
They are easy, delicious, and the perfect dessert for tailgating this season. The chocolate complements the Dr Pepper flavor perfectly, and each cookie is super soft and chewy. They are everything I have ever wanted in a cookie. No joke, guys.
To make them, first mix your butter, vegetable oil, both sugars, and Dr Pepper. Blend with a hand or stand mixer until smooth. Then add in eggs, one at a time, beating with each addition. In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Slowly add it to your creamed mixture. Roll dough into 2″ balls and place on cookie sheet. Press slightly with bottom of a glass coated with sugar.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes, or until centers are set. Once completely cool, mix together melted butter, Dr Pepper, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Beat for 30 seconds. Drizzle over cooled cookies and let sit until hardened.
