Snowy-Topped Brownie Drops are cookies with a soft and chocolatey center that any chocoholic would love.

The Victoria Sponge is a classic British tea-time cake that is said to have been a favorite of Queen Victoria. I have seen a version of the Victoria Sponge Cake that has two layers of sponge cake that sandwich fresh whipped cream and jam, and another that uses fresh fruits instead of jam.
