Happy Wednesday! We got some snow/rain over here which got me hoping for a snow day! But, no dice!
So here I am telling you about cookies. But they aren’t just any cookie, they sort of have a special ingredient, at least to my brother and I it’s special.
One Christmas years ago my brother and I got these orange shaped chocolate balls.
You smash them and when you open the wrapper the pieces come out like a real orange. The chocolate is the most creamy chocolate you will ever have with a hint of orange.
Needless to say we get them in our stocking every year and we both look forward to it.
I had some seriously good self control and realized I hadn’t cracked into it yet so I decided to smash it up and put it into cookie form and send them off the college with my brother.
The verdict was the cookie helped compliment the orange. But seriously if you haven’t tried this chocolate I highly recommend you do. You can find them at Trader Joe’s .
