Mocha Cookies

  

December 17, 2016

From our own Libby Lovig who handles all of our Nevada operations comes this family favorite - a chocolate cookie with creamy mocha frosting.

These cookies are delicious on their own - a sort of cookie / cupcake blend and extra special topped with a walnut half or chocolate kiss.
