Plowing through Pinterest: Deep Dark Chocolate Cookies

This weekend we went to an actual "Harvest Party."  We ate some incredible food, visited with amazing people, and then were told that we could bring home some of their harvest since they had an abundance!  I got a few things and tried to leave some for others, but not many others were going to get stuff, so I got a bit more...and then a bit more...and then some more!  We came home with homegrown tomatoes; spaghetti and acorn squash; red, Yukon gold, and Russet potatoes; onions and bell peppers!  I'm so excited to try them.  And I am of course excited to check out Pinterest for ideas on what to do with them all ;)

I think that there were between 75 and 100 people there, so of course that means there needs to be A LOT of food.  We were asked to bring a dessert to share with everyone, so again I went to my trusty ol' Pinterest, found a recipe under "Tasty Treats" and immediately knew which recipe I was going to use to Plow Through!  I chose the Deep Dark Chocolate Cookies and I have to say, they were just as yummy and easy as they look!  I love that they had no flour or butter, because as far as I am concerned, the fewer ingredients I have to use, the better! 

There were, of course, many other desserts that accompanied my little chocolate friends, and everything that I tried was AMAZING!  I did, however, have someone tell me that they thought that my dessert was the best one there and his wife asked me for the recipe so that she could make them.  Good ol' Pinterest comes through again!

How about you, have you been Plowing Through Pinterest at all this week??

(The best part about this picture is that there is a bite taken out of the cookie and my spiced chai is almost all gone!  I had taken some pictures with my camera, went to the computer to download them with my cookie and chai in hand, noticed that something funky had gone on with every. last. one. of them, but could only take this shot with my phone because I had already dug in!  Classy huh?! ;))
