With only a few more days until Christmas, I wanted to make sure to share a cookie recipe just in time for Santa. And if you’ve had a few not so nice moments this year, make them because these gems are guaranteed to get you on the nice list. Not only are they loaded with chopped Hershey Candy Cane Kisses but they also have some coffee to give Santa just enough energy to finish his busy night.
Because I think people can always use a good laugh and because I think it is important for everyone to laugh at themselves every once in a while, I’m going to tell you a little story. Few things first: I’m not currently eating chocolate, white chocolate however doesn’t bother Kellan so that is ok. Second: I am not a coffee drinker.
Ok so here goes. When we were back home for Thanksgiving Ryan offered to get everyone something from Starbucks. I asked for a Peppermint mocha. He came back. Handed me my mocha and I started drinking it. The conversation went as follows
Me: “This is really good! hey wait…it kind of tastes like chocolate”
Mom: “Is that a mocha?”
Mom: “Then it has chocolate in it.”
Mom, Ryan and other friends in the room “Umm Des…what did you think Mocha meant?”
Me: ” I don’t know I don’t drink coffee!! Mocha doesn’t say CHOCOLATE.”
Everyone else in the room: Laughter. Tons. of Laughter.
So apparently I am the last person on earth to know that mochas generally always have chocolate in them. Oh well. We all had a good laugh. And at least I can still get my peppermint mocha in the form of these cookies. And cookies are better than coffee anyway.
