Chocolate Sugar Cookies

Imagine me sharing another cookie recipe with you. But let me tell you these cookies are so easy peasy to make and so good. Seriously takes about 10 minutes to mix up the dough and you can do it all by hand no need to pull out the mixer for these babies. So simple but good enough to take to a bbq or whatever get together you have this summer. Everyone will love them. Trust me. I got this awesome recipe from Mel's Kitchen Café. Just wanted everyone to know that I will be MIA for a little while. My little family and I are moving across the country in about a week and a half so we are busy busy packing our house and I won't be back online for awhile till we get our new home set up. Thanks to all of you who enjoy my blog!!!
