Halloween Candy Cookies


First, let me just say these candy cookies are life changing. Who else always has a ton of leftover Halloween candy?

Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle Cookies


First, let’s chat about these truffle cookies. Think of a cookie with deep chocolate flavors, a brownie-esque texture which to me equates truffles (the most sacred of food groups) and that beautiful toasty crunch that distinctively comes from hazelnuts.
