Best Chocolate Cookie recipe in the world

Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Several years ago I was attending a meeting and the chair person graisiously brought these cookies for everyone. I took one bite and immediately  asked for the recipe. Thankfully she is our friend and former owner of the Freeman and is always willing to share recipes. We made it many times at the inn for tea but over the years with trying new things all the time, I had forgotten about this “lovely”.

We made it last week for the first time in years and a special guest enjoyed it as much as we, and asked us for the recipe. Our official taste tester, Victoria (Espi’s daughter) also agreed that this cookie is extra special.

  1. As the “special guest” who had the privilege of tasting this cookie, I want to thank you Donna for posting the recipe on your blog! I am making these cookies to take to our daughter’s for a Thanksgiving treat….my grandkids will go crazy for them!

    • Hi Karen, I just put up a new blog about our favorites but simply put, we like Ghirardelli & Lindt chocolate. They both have the unsweetened and semi-sweet versions, depending on your recipe. Happy baking.
