Growing up in Barcelona, Spain our Mom used to make this amazing chocolate dessert, it is totally addictive. We would sneak out of our rooms at night, to indulge in this midnight snack. We are sisters, we now live in the US and we called our Mom for the recipe, we just spiced it up a little! Butter, chocolate and cookies how good is that! —May I have that recipe
