Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies


Oh yes, these cookies taste as fabulous as they lookDon't you just want to pull one right out of your computer screen?  Or how about we create a scratch and sniff photo?  That is what a friend recommended to me this week.  I FINALLY ordered business cards for the blog which means I can stop writing my blog address on the back of my regular work cards!  ;)  So anyway, when I handed my new card to my "neighbor" at the office he asked if it was scratch and sniff.  That got me thinking...


On to the cookies...these little goodies seriously hit the spot.  They were soft and slightly chewy, almost as if they were melting in your mouth, but then you hit a mini chocolate chip which gave a nice bit of texture.  And the cocoa really brought out a unique chocolate flavor which in addition to the pinch of cinnamon turned out just perfect!  These guiltless goodies are only 1 point on Weight Watchers, but be prepared to use your will power to only eat just one!
