German Chocolate Chip Cookies
The Fourth of July is upon us! It’s time to commence summer grilling season!
One of my fondest memories of the Fourth is going to our neighbors’ house to enjoy a cookout and watching fireworks. They would fill their truck bed with boxes upon boxes of newly purchased fireworks. My dad’s favorite was always lighting the rolls of Black Cat Firecrackers and listening as the 500 individual firecrackers popped while the paper remnants jumped around on the gravel. As a kid, the Fourth was the coolest…
Another of my favorite things about the Fourth of July was my neighbor’s cookies. German Chocolate Chip cookies to be exact! They were divine…my favorite item at the cookout. I eventually got the nerve up to ask for the recipe. And I’m going to share it with you, now! I hope you enjoy them and have a wonderful, relaxing, and SAFE Fourth of July!
