Flourless Chocolate Cookies : Stranger Things


Happy Halloween! This year I've seen some amazing costumes inspired by the Netflix show Stranger Things. If you haven't seen it, it's the bomb.com. A nod to all things Stephen King, it's the perfect balance of heartfelt, creepy, and fun.



I promise, these just look like they're from the Upside Down. Hidden in that bowl of slime is a terrific dark chocolate cookie recipe. It's flourless and gluten-free! 



While the batter looks sinister, the cookies are nothing but a treat! I can't get over how yummy and chocolatey these cookies are. The key is to get dark chocolate cocoa, and to cook them low and slow.
