Chocolate Cookies for Sweet Pea Benefit Boutique

Well, I just got back from Chicago and I am so tired! There’s something about air travel that just wears me out! Anyways, a full recap of my trip will be posted on Wednesday, so look forward to that!

This recipe I posted today is one that will knock your socks off! Super chocolaty, chewy and minty! These are one of our favorite kinds of cookies to make. EVER.

Now, the reason I’m posting this recipe is because these cookies are going to be part of a silent auction called the Sweet Pea Benefit Boutique. This auction is going to be helping out two families who can’t have children and who can’t afford in vitro fertilization. As a person who has some of the same problems as these women, I can relate to a lot of what they are going through. So, I offered up just a small item for bidding! The auction starts tomorrow and there are lots of other adorable items you can bid on. Please go take a look and do what you can {aka bid on my cookies! :)} They really are yummy!

Regular posts back to normal on Wednesday!
