Who can argue with anything that has “double chocolate” in the title? These cookies are soft, chewy, and loaded with chocolate. As if things couldn’t get any better, it has a Candy Cane Hershey Kiss on the top. Come on, I dare you to try to stay away from these babies.
Whether you are making these cookies for a Christmas party or for a neighbor gift, you simply can’t go wrong. To makes this an even sweeter deal, they are very easy to make.
With love from my kitchen to yours,
