Chocolate Fudge Cookies

I had every intention of posting yesterday, but the tragedy that struck Connecticut left me so heartbroken, that I really had no words left to share with you guys. I will never understand why people take their anger and hatred out on innocent children, but we live in a sinful world and unfortunately things like this are going to happen. All we can do is prepare and try our hardest to prevent it. With that being said, please remember the families. There are 20 families who now are going to be without their children on Christmas, and that simply breaks my heart.


I had a work party last night, and as always, was left in charge of the dessert. One of my co workers actually begged me to make my famous sugar cookies, so I made a batch of those along with this new creation. These cookies are so good, it’s the only chocolate cookie you will ever need, I promise!

One of my favorite Christmas foods has always been my Gma’s fudge. Since she passed away however, I haven’t had the heart to make it. It’s just not the same without her. These cookies though, remind me of her fudge, and sent me back in time to those days spent with her. Needless to say, these are one of my favorite cookies I’ve ever made.


Is there a certain food or restaurant that you won’t go to anymore because it reminds you of someone?
What is your favorite Christmas holiday food? Mine is eggnog or fudge!

    ahhh it is so heartbreaking that this happened to those families, let alone right before Christmas! But the craaaaaazy thing is that the Lord IS somehow turning them to prayer, and I think that’s probably the only amazing thing. But yes, our prayers are with them :(

    And Greg looooooves his gramma’s banana split cake! I have the recipe and used to make it for him often, but haven’t in like, almost 1.5 years! Gotta change that soon :)

    Ooo fudge… delicious 😀 I actually think one of the reasons I won’t make pancakes is because they remind me of my grandma, and no one can make them like her. I only got to visit her a few times in Poland, but one of the things I remember the most is waking up every morning to fresh buttermilk pancakes that were sprinkled with icing sugar. She would get up early every morning and bike to the local store to pick up fresh ingredients, so they tasted all that much better. Miss her.

    These cookies look so yummy, Kat- I love cookies with a fudgy consistency! We usually do a Thanksgiving-like meal on Christmas day so turkey, brussels sprouts, cranberry sauce and yule log all remind me of Christmas!
