It's weird. We got snow this week. Alot of snow. We haven't had a decent (over 1-2 inches) since the winter before last. It's so pretty looking and a bit annoying at the same time. We've been very spoiled by mother nature.
But, we will muddled through. These cookies shall help out immensely.
Yes, these are all over, but, I had to make them and share them, because, if you have happened to miss them on one of the other many food bloggers they are on, well, I'm here to do you a gigantic favor.
Chocolate. Marshmallow. Melted chocolate. *Sigh* These are just amazing.
Make these. Grab a big glass of milk and watch the snow from your window or the sunshine if applicable where you live :)
