The Quickest Chocolate Blackout Cookies

As if I ever need an excuse to eat cookies – but Friday night cookies seem so much more special.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve gotten to a point in life when Friday night means a couple things;

  • Comfy clothes
  • Tv/Netflix Marathon
  • Slightly more indulgent food than my Monday – Thursday routine
  • Dessert. And when dessert is cookies … I can justify having 1 ( million-zillion-trillion … especially if they smell like brownies)

I don’t miss the days of late nights, slipping into the shortest dress/ skirt I own with the highest heels – predrinking and then partying until my feet want to fall off. Been there – done that.

Give me Mr. LTSL, a good movie and some good food …. Damn, Daniele I’m a happy little lady! I know you’re thinking I’m old – I’d like to think I’m ‘maturing’ … I say that, as I remember last Saturday I spent the morning covered in a winnie the pooh blanket, drinking chocolate milk, watching Inside Out ( also, wicked good movie!!).

These cookies though!! So easy to throw together, they taste extra fudgy, and sprinkles. Oh how I love me some sprinkles – and frosting … and dunking these in milk.

    1. Nadine, the cookies you made look AMAZING!! It seriously had me craving to make an other batch 🙂 and Yes, this dough would freeze well. I would probably portion them out into dough-balls first, and then pop them in the freezer.
