Mocha Cookie Pretzels

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 squares (1 ounce each) unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups cake flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon shortening
  • 1 teaspoon light corn syrup
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 3 to 5 tablespoons strong brewed coffee
  • 2 squares (1 ounce each) white baking chocolate, chopped
  • Green colored sugar, optional
How to make it:
  1. In a small mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg. Beat in melted chocolate and vanilla. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
  2. Divide dough into fourths; divide each portion into 12 pieces. Shape each piece into a 6-in. rope; twist into a pretzel shape. Place 1 in. apart on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 7-9 minutes or until set. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  3. For glaze, in a microwave, melt the chocolate chips, shortening and corn syrup; stir until smooth. Stir in confectioners’ sugar and enough coffee to achieve desired consistency. Dip cookies in glaze; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper until set.
  4. In a microwave, melt white chocolate; stir until smooth. Drizzle over cookies. Decorate with green sugar if desired; let stand until set. Yield: 4 dozen.

 She's used to putting everyone first - her sister, her friends, her boss. It's now her turn...

Art conservator, Kara Michaels has decided it's time to chase her dream - start her own business restoring and framing works of art. She has the skills, the nose for business, and the pent-up frustration from being invisible to the man she wants but can't have - her boss.

He's a meticulous planner whose rule book is about to be tossed out the window...

Baron Fitzgerald, a successful art dealer and Kara's boss, believes in having a strategy and following it without deviation. So when Kara tenders her resignation, he sets out to convince her to stay. Baron soon realizes that falling in love cannot be planned, but the insight comes a little too late for him and Kara.
