CHOCOLATE BON BON COOKIES A.K.A. RUDOLPH’S RED NOSE COOKIES – A rich, candy-like chocolate cookie topped with vanilla frosting and a red peanut m & m reminiscent of Rudolph’s red nose.

These cookies are nothing short of extraordinary! Dutch processed cocoa really makes the chocolate flavor pop. The cookies have the consistency of fudge and a taste to match.

Being there’s no eggs involved the dough is perfectly safe to sample raw. It practically begs for it with the sweet smell of chocolate wafting through the air!

I think these would be cute with candy hearts on them for Valentine’s day or even a Hershey’s kiss.

With a short, simple list of ingredients I know where to turn next time I’m hit with a chocolate craving! These are just plain chocolate dreamy!
