PREHEAT oven to 300° F.

COMBINE butter, sugar, corn syrup, cinnamon and ginger in medium, heavy-duty saucepan over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat; stir in flour and brandy. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto ungreased baking sheets about 3 inches apart, baking no more than 6 at a time.

BAKE for 10 to 14 minutes or until deep caramel color. Cool on baking sheets for 10 seconds. Remove from baking sheets and immediately roll around wooden spoon handle; cool completely on wire racks.

LINE baking sheets with wax paper.

MICROWAVE morsels and vegetable shortening in medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; STIR. The morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until smooth. Dip cookies halfway in melted chocolate; shake off excess. Sprinkle with nuts; set on prepared baking sheets. Refrigerate for 10 minutes or until chocolate is set. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

This is my favorite treat to make! Guests absolutely love them!

Chewy vs Snappy

I did use rounded teaspoons for this recipe but the middles were kind of thick and therefore the edges hardened quicker than the middle and so they would come off the pan. They were really greasy too so it was hard to wrap them around the spoon. They were very rich but still delicious.

Actually I made these for a "welcome" gift basket. Naturally, had to keep some for us! They were delicious.

Fabulous! As soon as I seen this recipe I knew I had to try it. Used the parchment paper and had no problem with them sticking. I let them cool a little longer so they weren't so fragile. An Ove Glove would come in handy since they are very warm when you're trying to roll them. Simple to make. Delicous. Will definately make again. Everyone wanted a copy of the recipe. Don't be scared off by the fact there's brandy in it. It's not enough to make it adult only.

chocolate dipped brandy snaps

Excellent cookie. We dropped smaller amounts on the tray and then rolled them up. Did more than 6 -- with 2 working together, it worked fine.
