Chocolate Softies

Last week it rained. And rained. And then rained some more (and it's STILL raining, by the way. Ugh. Anyways...)
The girls and I were getting pretty bored, so we grabbed a cookbook and decided to try out a new recipe.
(loved doing that! so fun!)
We chose Company's Coming- Cookies and settled on "Chocolate Softies."

I am happy to report that the name does not mislead. These cookies turned out to be the softest cookies I think I've ever made. Ever. Like melt in your mouth soft. Mmmmm!
They were super yummy and perfect with a glass of milk.

Now, I realize that they don't look like much. Come on, be honest- you were thinking the same thing, right?!

They are fine just on their own...


Here's where I get really excited!

If you want to get a bit can!
Check it out:

The recipe suggests adding a little icing.
Because if a chocolate cookie needs anything it's chocolate icing-right?
So we did.

But then I thought it needed a little something more. Sprinkles maybe? Chocolate curls? Hmmmm.....Then it hit me- Berries!!!

The icing certainly jumps up the sweetness factor and is {in my humble opinion} totally worth the extra effort.
And the berries just make them oh so pretty. It is all about the presentation, isn't it?

They are so easy and are definitely a new family favorite!
Now go make these asap. And then tell me how awesome I am for sharing them with you ;)
