Smashed Raspberry Chocolate Cookies by @bettinas_kitchen

We're super excited about our first recipe from Bettina Campolucci Bordi of @bettinas_kitchen.

"This is such a good cookie recipe. It is surprisingly easy and the salty, sweet, tangy and bitter favours work so well together. The 90% Ombar is my personal favourite and is one of the best high cacao content bars I have ever tried. I say this because it has a beautiful rounded flavour. Most high cacao content bars are bitter and leave a not so sweet after taste. Also the fact that these cookies don't need to be cooked for long means more nutrients and preservation of the good stuff. Be warned they are addictive. Once you start you won't be able to stop."
