Mississippi Mud....Cookies, that is.

Guess what I made today?
Well, you've probably figured it out by now.  
I'm trying some new recipes from Southern Living's Best Loved Cookie Book (btw, some amazing looking cookies in this book) and this is the first one I've tried.  Let's just say, I didn't regret it!
