Cheeto Cookies

Who would have thought that the cheesy goodness of Cheetos and the sweetness of cookies would be a match made in tastebud heaven? (Probably my college self during a late-night snack attack…who’s with me?!) 

If you’re looking for something different and delicious, this is certain to please. 

Why You Should Give These Cheeto Cookies A Try

First off, I never say “no” to any type of cookie. Because what if I’ve said “no” to the best taste, ever? I’ll never forgive myself and will always long for that decision to be reversed. 

I always say to give every cookie a chance because every cookie has the potential to be amazing.

And now that I’ve said that, I can assure you that these cookies are downright awesome. I was skeptical at first…but then after about the third cookie, I didn’t need any more convincing. (I did keep doing further research, just be on the safe side, though!)
