Sweets to Warm Your Heart

Want to beat the winter blues?  For some, a cup of hot cocoa might do the trick. But for us a baked goody is in order…especially since its Saturday!!!  Coincidentally, we ran across a recipe for hot cocoa cookies put out by none other than Swiss Miss herself. They are sure to warm your belly and if you are lucky enough to make them with a sister or loved one, we’re sure they will warm your heart too. (Awwww…ooooh! Cheesy, we know!)
