This recipe speaks for itself, as do the photos. As soon as I shared even just a couple quick sneak-peaks of these beauties, I had requests flooding in for the recipe! Well, here it is and if I could say one thing about it, I’d just say MAKE IT!!!!

The cookies are heavenly in and of themselves, and then coupled with the richest dark chocolate (and dairy-free), easy to make (!!) sorbet, I can’t really imagine a more perfect summer dessert. Or snack… or anytime treat. Enjoy!
