Sunflower Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

My family and I love Chocolate Chip Cookies. It is one of our favorite desserts to make and eat.

As a kid I loved waking up to find that little red heart full of chocolates waiting for me on the dining room table, and the truth is, I wouldn’t be disappointed to wake up to one now. The other side of that truth is, I know I would eat the whole box. Mike on the other hand, has incredible self control and he can make a small box of chocolates last for months. That never happens though, because after 3 days I consider it to be fair game and it’s gone before he knows what happened!

So this year I decided to make him some homemade chocolates.
