Gooey Chocolate Hug Cookies

Soft and Gooey Chocolate Hug Cookies - simple AND delicious! { lilluna.com } Chocolate cake mix combined with a few ingredients make these so soft & yum!

Hi there, it’s me Lily.

Did you know my dad goes to work and he works at a school. He teaches people how to make robot arms and legs. He asked me and my brother to be patient models at his work so his students could practice casting on someone. I had to do this three times but it was a lot of fun (and I even got some money for doing it!)

On the second time we went there, my mom and me decided to make cookies for the students. Miss Fanny and Miss Kate were the ones who worked on me and they were super nice so I wanted them to have some treats from me.

We already like the Gooey Butter Cookies my mom makes so this time we made them chocolate and added a Hershey’s Hug on top.

I got to try one and they were really good.

This is how we wanted them to look…

When they are still soft we added a Hug!

We put them in the fridge after we added the hug so they didn’t melt.

These cookies have HUGS on them, so if you eat them I want it to feel like a real hug from me, Lily.

And that’s all.

Love, Lily
