Death By Chocolate Cookies

If, when the day comes, I get to choose how I’m going to die it’s gonna be death by chocolate. I can even imagine it: I’d be visiting a chocolate manufacturing plant somewhere and the tour would take us through the huge vats of chocolate room. We’d be moving along a walkway above one of those giant vats of swirling chocolate (imagine Willy Wonka’s factory here) when suddenly, I’d ‘somehow’ fall in. “Don’t worry ma’am, help is on the way!” And as I’m swimming my way through this river of chocolate bliss, I’d look ’em straight in the eye, gulp down my first mouthful and say, “Don’t worry, I’ve got this.” Death by chocolate…what a way to go!

The only thing deadly about these Death By Chocolate Cookies is how death-defyingly delicious they are. Still, if I get to choose how I'd want to go, it's gonna be by chocolate... Click Now!

Hi Jamie, I wanted to make and serve these on the 8th at a meeting for people on both sides of the isle, and know, chocolate will bring them together...no matter what! So, please tell me, since it is optional, what the molasses will/will not do for the cookies. I don't mind using it, ...just want to know. Thank you
