But…Since I live in Florida where the low in December is 75 degrees, I rarely get to sip on my favorite hot drink. So in order to have my hot chocolate everyday, I put them in cookie form!

The Cool Whip Icing was definitely the star of the cake, so today I’m sharing this icing with you, so that you can see how adding a little Cool Whip can turn your ordinary dessert in to an extraordinary dessert! [Read more…]
