Double Chocolate Cookies

Just before Christmas it was my Husbands birthday, normally I like to surprise him with a cake, however, this year it was not going to be that simple. My toddler is not a great assistant in the kitchen and so I would need him to watch her whilst I baked. So I thought I would…
