And then Karen made them and I ate 12. Holy crap guys ...... you have to make these. I call them Karma Cookies. Don't ask me why, but when Karen and I were making them last week we were talking about Karma and something about their dark chocolate-y smooth filling made me think about all things good, bad, yummy and delicious. When you take a bite it feels like karma. Do good and good will come to you. Do bad and well .......
