And our first day of school tradition has always been fresh baked homemade cookies waiting for them, along with a tall glass of cold milk, when they return home to share all of the events of their first day of school! The first day of Pre-K, first day of First Grade, and a Junior in high school - and next week Melissa heads back for her senior year of college. There is a LOT going on at our house!
Good thing I've got this wonderful treat waiting for them! The chewiest, fudgiest brownie cookies ever, studded with miniature chocolate chips and milk chocolate M&M's. Everyone goes NUTS for these!
You can always make these brownie cookies a bit smaller and more civilized, but for the first day of school I make these big - six on a cookie tray. Big cookies = big smiles! Love these little ones AND their big smiles! And now I'm off to pour another cold glass of milk and hear all about their adventures!
