If there is one food item that I absolutely can not live without it is chocolate! This recipe is definitely for CHOCOLATE LOVERS!!! It’s Valentine’s Day is this week and the stores are flooded with an obscene amount of candy. I found these cute Valentine’s Day colored M&M’s and knew I had to bake something with them. Plus it was fun snacking on them while developing the recipe!
I am telling you if you like chocolate (and who doesn’t!?), these cookies are for you. Super rich and fudgy and the batter is super simple to make. It is all about simplicity lately with me, that and the fact that these cookies are so darn delicious I could hardly wait until they came out of the oven. You all know that giddy feeling you get when you take a bite of a warm fresh from the oven cookie with a cold glass of milk. Absolute heaven!!
These cookies are so thick, chewy, full of double chocolate fudge flavor and are melt-in-your-mouth amazing plus full of intense chocolate decadence. Why not make some for your Valentine this year, or heck any day of the year they are that delicious!
Enjoy chocolate lovers!
