Nothing like a good old fashion blue ribbon winning cookie recipe to help cheer you up after a long day of vampire hunting. And Santa Carla’s county fair has one of the most amazing recipes I’ve ever tried. Originally submitted by Grandma Frog, these cookies have an amazing new kick to an old recipe. We’ve been aware of some very serious vampire activity in town for a long time so Grandma Frog with some “inspiration from (her) grandsons, Edgar and Allen”, she’s added roasted garlic to her old fashion chocolate chip recipe. While it might not seem appealing at first the smoky savory flavor of the garlic balances out the sweet delicate taste of chocolate so well it will make your taste buds feel like they are dancing outside the second floor window! But the one thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach….all the damn vampires!!
