So I thought it was most fitting when Roxana choose cookies as the special theme to pair with chocolate for December's #chocolate party.
I had a couple options in mind by ultimately went with some triple chocolate cookies. Go big or go home right?
I made these with my mom when I was home over Thanksgiving. We had pie, ice cream and lots of turkey leftovers but that didn't stop us from making cookies.
Time was tight with all of the activities and family visits during our short trip to Maine but as a duo we were able to make the dough together one morning. Up at eight with cookie dough is a great way to start the day I must say.
The next morning we were up bright and early to bake them off. Good thing too because we left later this day along with the cookies. Traffic was horrible and Mr. J and I snacked on our cookies to distract us from the annoyance of sitting still on the highway.
I made a little Christmas tree with the cookies once they were cooled.
