“Ahhh, me and my cookies! (no complaints from the family, just getting to be somewhat like a following!) Just an idea variation to get more chocolate into each bite...you can easily make one batch to showcase an assortment of candy, since all the classics come in minis. *prep time does not include the 1 hour chilling time.*”
30 cookies
