Anything is better with chocolate right? How about turning chocolate chip cookies into chocolate chocolate chip cookies, and adding dried cranberries too?!? Pure decadence!
I can’t believe Mother’s Day is so close! This means that summer is almost here, and the year is almost halfway gone (help! how does one slow down time…it’s passing by too fast!) It also means that the school semester is almost done, and that summer break is almost upon us. Yippee!! I love, love, love summer! But until I can enjoy summer, I have to get through finals…*sigh*
But never mind about finals just yet. Let’s talk about these amazing cookies that YOU should make for Mother’s Day! I know cookies are not a very MD dessert, but you’ve got to try these ones because they’re almost like a brownie in a cookie form! Chewy, fudge-y, chocolate-y, these cookies are a chocolate lover’s dream!!
The dried cranberries that we add in them are completely optional, but they add such a wonderful flavor to the cookies that really compliments the chocolate, I can’t even explain it! Just try it, it’s nothing like adding raisins to your cookies…it’s better!
In about 30 min. you can have fresh, warm cookies to surprise your mom with. Even better, you can make them heart-shaped for the occasion!! Either way, you shouldn’t only wait for an event like Mother’s Day to try these cookies, they make the perfect snack/breakfast/dessert any time of the week!
Have a Sweet Mother’s Day!!
