Perfect Chocolate Snickerdoodles

Awesome right here! Don't miss this super easy college cooking recipe! Not over the top with crazy ingredients or equipment--just pure delish!! These cookies roll up in a flash and go down in an easy bite that melts in your mouth. 



Even if you don't have the traditional 7-speed hand mixer, you can probably whip these up just as well with good ol' upper body strength. Make these happen and you will have a new set of friends!
