Toblerone Chunk Cookies

Can I interest you in the best cookie I’ve ever made, ever? They’re 100% whole wheat, and buttery, and made with chunks of Toblerone instead of chocolate chips.  Ohhhhh yes, they are amazing!  My Dad declared them the best cookies he’s ever had, and everyone was surprised to discover they were whole wheat. They came […]
