Cream Cheese Filled Hot Cocoa Cookies

IMG_0281

The perfect comfort food. I love anything that has a surprise inside. So instead of making a regular hot chocoa cookie, I decided to fill it with cream cheese! At first sight, one would think it is a regular cookie. . . but. . . once you take a bite, the sweet cream cheese filling enhances the chocolate flavor of the soft and chrunchy cookie. Pop these babies in the microwave for about 10 seconds and serve warm! Top with a scoop of ice cream and sandwich it with another warm cookie on top. Anyone want a cookie sandwich? Yes please. Happy Eating~ πŸ™‚IMG_0283 IMG_0286
