Here is my sweeties Valentines Day cookies, White Chocolate and M&M’s.
I am issue a warning before you continue reading.
You Must, Must, Must pack these up and remove all but the one you are going to eat and the one each one of your sweeties are going to eat.
Give a few to your mailman, garbage man, UPS driver, neighbor, friends.  Send some to work with your husband to give to his co-workers.  No matter what DO NOT allow them to stay in your kitchen!  Whew, I am glad that is over with!  So now that you have been duly warned let me show you how to make these very bad, bad, really good cookies!
Yes, I know I am being contradicting… its a talent.
White Chocolate and M&M Cookies
Here is how it all happened!
I went to the grocery store to get ingredients to make my chili for my hubby because his beloved Bengals were playing in their playoff game.  Yes, I know the Bengals lost and yes, I know it was last month but recipe development happens in my kitchen, so yes, I was making these last month- there have been many Valentine’s Day’s desserts over the last month…..   Back to my story, so I am at the grocery store and of course like the dummy that I am, I went to the grocery store hungry.  Which we all know only means disaster is lurking around the corner and  I came home with stuff I did not need, like a bag of Valentines Day M&M’s.
