Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Size Wise
Sweets can add enjoyment to a balanced diet, but remember to keep tabs on portions. One serving of this dessert is 2 cookies.
Tip 2
Keep Your Chocolate Warm
If the chocolate is too cool, it will slide off the powdered sugar when drizzled on. Simply reheat according to package directions until warmed through.
