The world of cookies is extremely diverse. There are soft ones, hard ones, smooth ones, rough ones. There are ones made for twisting and dipping into milk, there are ones best served with hot tea or coffee.

The remaining bites (cookies come in packets of four), leave you waiting for more chocolate explosion. If you want to tease your tastebuds, I’d suggest having these with a cup of coffee, or even having these the next time you make some s’mores!
