Bring on the chocolate! Treat your favorite choco-holics to rich, creamy treats like Chocolate Blooms and Triple Decker Decadence cookies.

I made the White Chocolate Cherry Shortbread cookies for gift tins this year. They were so yummy, I ended up making more for Christmas, and my husband is already requesting them for future occasions. They didn’t even need the final dip in white chocolate topping and sprinkles.
Thanks for the suggestion!
