Do I have some fabulous cookies for you today! These are killer! I brought these to a party and they were the first ones gone. And then I made another batch a week later and everyone again ate them up in 1 sitting! They didn’t even survive 24 hours! These are perfect for the holidays because they have these in them:
Do you recognize them? I found these Mint Truffle Hershey Kisses on my grocer’s shelves right after Thanksgiving and I picked up a few bags. These are tasty little devils. I might even go out on a limb and say addictive. Since I’ve been to Canada, I haven’t seen any yet, but I really haven’t been to a grocery store yet, so what do I know? I’ll keep you posted on that one. In the mean time, run to the store, grab a bag of these Kisses and make some delicious cookies! Perfect for Santa!They are almost as fudgy as brownies. So easy and so fabulous. Yum. I’m craving them as I type this!
A few years ago, I got my hands on a great chewy chocolate cookie recipe from a lady named Natalia deSavigny–a Mom of two of my good friends. Anyways, I adapted it over the years and this is yet another adaptation. If you just want plain chewy chocolate cookies, leave the Mint Truffle Kisses out. They are pretty stellar on their own. So happy holidays in advance! Spread Christmas cheer with some great baking!
