Champion Chocolates

A dusting of snow outside, a dusting of powdered sugar inside. . . these chocolate cookies made the day a special one!  The recipe was inspired by The Local PalateI used 100% Cacao Unsweetened Chocolate, a good fat, 1/2 Whole Wheat Flour and controlled the amount of added sugar so that the finished product is as good as it gets. . . and so chewy and delicious!
