CHOCOLATE! Need I say more? ...Okay okay, well then. This cookie is in a class all its own, its a cookie, its chocolate, and its like a cookie and a brownie had a love child and blessed the world with it. Too much? Well when it comes to chocolate, you can NEVER have too much folks. This recipe shows you, vegan or not you too can enjoy chocolate anytime, anywhere.
