Chocolate Cookie Bear
Such a cute delicious cookie! It was very time consuming making the little bears but it was worth it. Will try to make it again to find a less messy, more efficient way to form the bears.

Review for Chocolate Cookie Bear
These cookies taste good, but they are time consuming and it is hard to judge when they are done. They are very cute and would be great for a child's sleep over or party. (I found it much easier to just make faces instead of the whole body.)
