Chocolate S’more Cookies

About a month ago we had a short weekend in Mount Dora, Fl. I was in town for a college friend's bridal shower and Hagin tagged along to keep me company.

They are always my go to dish when asked to bring a dessert. Oooey, gooey, and chewy these are these are always a hit. I grew with … [Read more...]
