These long summer days are starting to get to me! I know I complain about the heat like.. every single post, but it is SO. HOT. HERE. My little Luke (just turned 3!) “doesn’t want to go anywhere” primarily because we are all soaking with sweat before we even leave the garage! Anyway, last week we were desperately in need of an activity and the kids didn’t want to leave the house so we decided to make cookies together. When I bake with the littles we typically go with these yummy no bake cookies or our favorite chocolate chip recipe, but we were craving something different and these completely hit the spot! I brought the leftovers to young women’s with me that night and the girls gobbled them right up. If you’re looking for a fun change, these are choc full of butterscotch-y delight and I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
