Strawberry and Black Sesame Cookies

Day 6 of 12: Melted Snowman Chocolate Cupcakes

Back on Day 2 of 12 Days of Christmas, I posted my recipe for Melted Snowman Chocolate Chip Cookies. The story behind those was the idea of seeing your snowman melt away slowly and needing some comfort with some warm chocolate chip cookies. I’ve since seen quite a few melted snowman themed bakes which involved… Continue reading Day 6 of 12: Melted Snowman Chocolate Cupcakes
