So I admit it…I do make some non-healthy recipes every once in a while. And this recipe is the antithesis of diet friendly. My mom baked these cookies last week to bring to the hospital for John’s step-dad’s chemo treatments. We took one bite and I swear it was like a scene out of a movie where everything slows down and the song “Dreamweaver” starts playing…but seriously, John and I were shocked at how delicious they were and knew we had to make some ASAP!
I decided to bring them to our friend’s Super Bowl party hoping we would have extras to bring home. They are really good warmed up for a few seconds with ice-cream (and yes I am pregnant if you couldn't tell). Thanks mom for another amazing recipe.
This recipe allows for personalization depending on your taste. My mom used chocolate cake mix and chocolate chips I decided to go with chocolate chips, dark chocolate cake mix and mini Reese’s cups.
