I’m excited about these cookies for so many reason. First, every time I see pretty Easter treats all over the web with colored candies, I get a little sad. I think they’re gorgeous, but I know I’m not going to make something with artificial food colorings .
When I saw Jenna from Eat, Live, Run make a similar cookie about a month ago, I thought they were beautiful, but again, didn’t think I’d ever make them as all the candy-coated sunflower seeds I’d seen had the nasty colors in them. Then I was at Trader Joe’s. I may have heard angels singing when I inspected the ingredient list on these chocolate sunflower seed drops and saw that they are colored with natural ingredients like paprika, turmeric, and red beet powder.
