Cocoa Fudge Cookies

Cocoa Fudge Cookies

You can mix these incredibly easy, fudge cookies right in the saucepan and they make your kitchen smell amazing. When freshly baked, these thin chocolate cookies have crisp edges and chewy centers. These are a holiday staple at my house and I love drizzling then with melted white chocolate and crushed candy cane pieces. These cookies also make a year round appearance at our house as well because of their simplicity and versatility. (Adapted from Cooking Light)
