Chocolatey cookies featuring PASCHA chocolate chips!

Yesterday we featured some amazing chocolate-loaded muffins using PASCHA chocolate chips, and today we have a double Disney-sized dose of cookies for you!

We love PASCHA for their allergen-free status, but also because they are just oh-so-good. They were definitely a hotspot at the Food Allergy & Celiac Convention, and we love everything about the amazing Canadian company. You can read more about them here in our Meet Our Vendors series.

But, onto important things. Like cookies.
