Premier Treats for Valentines Day

These chocolate cookies are top end-made with 100% cacao chocolate, 1/2 whole wheat flour and reduced sugar to fit in the current Dietary Guidelines.  The finished product is as good as it gets-chewy and delicious!  Packed in 3-packs, these are tokens of the heart felt holiday for our adult friends.
