Using good ingredients

In our home, we love a good dessert, I was a wedding cake maker for several years after all. But in all things, we try to use the best, quality ingredients not only for taste, but for health. So many things, like cocoa powder, have amazing health benefits in their organic, true form. So we use ingredients with, well, less ingredients. Items in their truest form, allowing us to enjoy our food with intention.

NOW® Foods has us covered with their delicious, organic cocoa powder. I’ve been using NOW® Foods products for as long as I can remember, because I trust their standards in quality. I’ve been to their facilities and have been able to see first hand how important high standards are to them.

Okay, let’s get to it and make these fun, festive cookies!

Chocolate or bust

Who else is all about the chocolate desserts? I won’t ever turn my nose up at a fruit dessert, because they’re a close second for me. But when I have a craving for sweets, its usually chocolate related. I’ve never been much of a candy or just sugar person. It’s all about the cocoa flavor for me.
