Chocolate milk in Canada is divine. It’s thick and addictive. It’s like a healthy milkshake. .. Maybe omit the ‘healthy’ there. What better to go with milk? COOKIES. lots and lots of COOKIES.
(The fact that the milk carton has the word ‘MOOO’ on the side of it adds to its brilliance). Oh Oh and remember that Blur video with the dancing milk carton?!
These are delicious and so easy to make. Great results every time. Enjoy!
