You will love these perfect dark chocolate crinkle cookies that are crispy on the outside with a delectable gooey dark chocolate inside. This recipe is my tried and true, every time perfect recipe.
Quick, simple and delicious!
If you know me, then you know I love easy celebration ideas that pack a BIG punch. I learned this recipe from my dad so many years ago. He used to bake several batches at Christmas and mail them off in tins to his mid-west relatives. He would label them inside “Earthquake Cookies from California”.
My dad loved to make people laugh. I guess it’s only REALLY funny if there isn’t a huge earthquake.
In my mind, I was a big help making these batches of cracked treats. After the tins were packed, we would sit down with an ice cold milk and eat the stragglers. I really remember is how gooey, delicious these are. They are so soft and rich in the center with sweet sugar coating.
His family would call one by one to thank him. These were deliciously amusing all the way from California.
These cookies and that cold glass of milk have a place in my heart forever.
My children LOVE milk. By love, it’s the first thing they cheer at breakfast. “Milk, please!”
It’s also a favorite comfort drink with homework. Oh, homework. That’s a post of its own. Thank goodness, my 4th grader loves to sip and it gives her a boost to tackle her projects.
That’s why I was so excited to work on The National Milk Life Campaign. Pop over because their website is really amazing. It is packed with recipes, videos, and nutritional information.
Milk is available is the dairy section of every grocery store.
As a mom, I appreciate that it is a natural source of high- quality protein. My kids don’t eat a lot of meats, so I feel better knowing they are getting these nutrients.
Milk is a simple way to get natural, high-quality protein plus other nutrients kids need to help power through the day’s activities with a taste they love. There are 8 grams of protein per 8-ounce serving. These nutrients are hard to replace!
Happy kids, happy mom.
