It's potluck and cookie swapping season.
Well... it's ALMOST time for it. I love bringing in delicious and melt-in-your-mouth goodies to work and for gifts. Who wouldn't love a jar of cookies made with love as a gift? I know I am game for them. ESPECIALLY when they are chocolate cookies with a white chocolate drizzle.
I am really excited to share this recipe with you. Dark chocolate with espresso added in the mix to make the chocolate flavor much richer. Drizzle with high quality white chocolate and these cookies look like they came from a high end bakery.
Go on. make them and gift them. Also... keep some for yourself.
