Per standard for Enjoy Life, this recipe idea is top allergen-free. It uses a few of their ingredients, including those super-awesome soft baked cookies. Seriously, those little gems are in a league all their own (especially the Snickerdoodle, which are also available under the Trader Joe’s label). Plus, the tender, chewy texture makes them very easy to use in fun recipes like these cookie monsters.
