Salted Dark Chocolate Violet Cookies


You guys, I made us a fancy cookie. I know. It’s exciting. Did you ever eat French violet hard candies when you were a kid? I was obsessed with them. They usually came in beautifully-designed little tins that I coveted. I think I was as much obsessed with the tins as I was with the candy itself. So when thefeedfeed + method ask…
