Cocoa Cookies

Is it possible that food can be better than sex? Yes it is. If the item is properly executed and the person has put a lot of love and passion into their cooking, I feel just about anything you eat can give you what I like to call a “mouth gasm” also know as an orgasm in your mouth, that immediate reaction after taking a bite of something and going MMMM OMG! uuugggghhh nomnomnom…yep an orgasm. Now, I’m not saying these cookies are better than sex or fresh baked chocolate chip cookies, however they are pretty damn good. It doesn’t take a master chef to make a good batch of cookies, but it does take one awesome recipe to create the best cookie. I’m willing to share this recipe with you because its that good and I’m positive everyone will enjoy.

These cookies are Brandon’s favorite so I make them frequently. The fact that they are made from pure cocoa and are soft make them that much better to enjoy. I kept this recipe plain and simple without adding in nuts or chocolate chips. If you want to make these cookies have more personality, feel free to include walnuts and white chocolate chips into the batch. Pour yourself a glass of milk or some hot chocolate and grab a good book. Sit back, relax and enjoy life and these cookies for a little while. 🙂
