Warm Up Sweetly

We know it’s January, so it’s kind of unfair to complain about the cold. Lucky for us there are always a few warmer days sprinkled in between the chilly ones to make them more bearable. Today is one of those much needed days. No need to warm up with a hot cup of cocoa. We’ll bake Hot Cocoa Cookies instead! With sea salt caramel chips and Hot Cocoa M&Ms they become the tastiest way to enjoy these long winter days!

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar

  1. Beat Crisco and sugars in large bowl with standing mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg whites and vanilla; mix well.
