Who Loves Chocolate?! Make these soft, melt in your mouth, Double Chocolate SunDrops Cookies
I was inspired to make these cookies with the SunDrops milk chocolate candies. For the cocoa powder in this recipe, I used black cocoa powder to give a rich and bold flavor. I love how the colors of the candies peak out of the dark dough. Black cocoa powder is the same cocoa used in preparing Oreos, available here
These cookies use the same formula as my Chocolate Coconut Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches except you don’t need to roll out the dough.
Along with the candies, I added mini chocolate chips to the mix too! Yep, black cocoa powder, mini chocolate chips, and milk chocolate candies..what a treat of a cookie!
