Chocolate and coffee...my 2 best friends!! All baked into one pretty cookie...now we're talkin'! ;) These are WONDERFUL! I especially enjoy them with my morning coffee or evening hot chocolate by the fireplace! Great for dunking! Also make pretty gifts during the holidays. I like to place them in a little bag tied with a ribbon, tucked into a coffee mug, and put into a mini holiday basket or mini gift bag from the dollar store with coffee or hot chocolate packets and a few assorted Christmas chocolates. Great mini gifts for neighbors, teachers or co-workers! Enjoy!! :D photo from bing images
