Chocolate Haystacks and my First Mother's Day

May 21, 2013

Oops sorry, I got a little lazy this past week and forgot to post this! After all I'm sure you guys want to read all about these chocolatey cookies!


We went up to the lake for Mother's Day with Daniel's family, and I had to make something quick and easy for a snack up there. I know that these are my father-in-law's favourite cookie so I decided to whip them up quick as I knew they would please. They are honestly some of the most easiest cookies to make.. and on a warm spring day when you don't want to turn your oven on, DON'T! They are pretty straight forward so I'm not going to elaborate too much on directions.. just mix and chill. So maybe I should fill you in on some pics from the weekend?? Sure!


We found a ton of lady bugs crawling around by the fire pit! Maddox tried to eat a couple.. Auntie Karleigh showed him how to hold them properly.


Proof that my little man is always on the go! Nana tried to catch him for a kiss but he wanted none of it!


Then we went to the park for some fun in the sun! Maddox loves the slides and swings and laughs and giggles the entire time!


Aaaanyway.. back to the recipe!
