Wholesome Cookies + Hot Cacao Bliss

A Treat The Whole Family Can Enjoy

The holidays. They're best-of-the-best and the worst-of-the-worst. Let's focus on the best-of-the-best though... homemade desserts and curling up by the fire.

Our favorite way to spend winter nights? With cookies fresh out of the oven and a Tonic family favorite version of hot chocolate: hot Cacao Bliss.

Here's a recipe for wholesome and healthy oatmeal raisin cookies that are seriously delicious and full of thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin E and fiber. And when they're all done, make sure you have a bottle of Cacao Bliss on hand to warm up and wash down the cookies with.

  6. Drop rounded tablespoons of cookie dough onto a baking sheet. Be sure to leave 2 inches between each cookie.
