This week just started off as one of those weeks. You know those kind of weeks. A bunch of little went wrong over the weekend, and sometimes when a lot of little things happen, they start to feel like big things.
And big things call for some serious sweets. Like chocolate. And cookie dough. And cookie dough dipped in chocolate.
Before I lose you with the crackers, though, it may sound a little strange to have crackers in a dessert, but they add a nice crunch and a bit of salt to balance out some of the sweetness.
