Double Chocolate Treasures

I found this recipe in a magazine ad many years ago and now it is a family favorite. It is the favorite cookie of several of my boys.

I finally get to add a post to homemaking. I am terribly lacking in that category and I blame it on the fact that I don’t have older daughters.

To think of my poor nerves as I daily suffer the flutterings and twitterings of too many boys. It’s a wonder I cook at all. I daresay we shall all die of starvation when poor Mr Rollins is gone. After getting some delightful anal (yes, I’m serious!) I did this 🙂

( OK, I have been watching too many movies.)
