Monday!I need chocolate cookies!

Hello there! I wish everyone is having a great day! 🙂

Somehow Monday is always the busiest and longest day of the week for me. If I need something to lift my mood, it will be these chocolate cookies. 🙂 Crisp, crunchy, full of dark chocolate and almonds. It goes well with tea or coffee.

I don’t like milk chocolate much, but I am a super fan for dark chocolate. Studies show that dark chocolate actually helps us to deal with stress and improve our brain function. See, a good reason to have a little bit of dark chocolate everyday. However, don’t over indulge. 😉

I always have some Lindt 70% or 85% Extra dark chocolate bars in my kitchen. I used 85% one in this recipe. I love Lindt dark chocolate. (No Ads here!) The texture is extra smooth. The taste is very well-balanced. This chocolate cookie recipe is simple and easy. After you bake it, let it cool completely and store in a airtight jar. Then, you can enjoy it anytime you want.
