  • While the cookies cool down, take a bowl and add your favorite milk chocolate chips and melt them. Keep stirring until they are completely melted.

  • Once they are done, please place them in the refrigerator to cool down for about an hour or more until the center chocolate is settled.
  • Before serving the cookies, sprinkle them with powdered sugar.
