Chocolate Chip Cookies. If you are a baker they are most likely either your nemesis or your claim to fame. Even if you’ve developed the perfect recipe, entirely your own or tinkered with someone else’s to give it your own flair, you’re most likely tempted to make one more recipe from a blog or Pinterest or a newspaper clipping. You do still read actual paper literature, don’t you? There’s a scientifically proven difference in intelligence between those who read turnable pages and those who turn their pages with just a finger, but I digress.
Cookies and unexpected snow days. How pleasant when they happen to coincide. Another digression, don’t you just love all these gadgets with spelling tools that allow you to correctly spell words like digress and coincide without looking them up in a dictionary? I’m much too easily distracted. Let’s move on.
It’s my hubs fault. I really wanted a cinnamon roll and I even had the recipe picked out, but I was going to be a good girl and get a scoop of frozen yogurt instead of making a
nother mess in the kitchen. When I mentioned wanting a cinnamon roll he said, “you could make some kind of healthy chocolate chip cookie.” Suggesting that to me is like throwing a stick and saying fetch to a dog!
I like chocolate almost more than anything else. I also really enjoy
cookies. So when I saw these cookies on Pinterest a bit ago, I knew we were destined for each other.
First of all let me tell you, you can do this. These double chocolate cookies are delicious AND simple. As a matter of fact, I’m confident you can nail them and will end up making them over and over again. They are perfect as is or they can be used as a base for something a little fancier or more decadent. Consider using them as a Valentine’s Day treat. In just two days they’ve earned me a thank you from my dad and a kiss from my hubs – chocolate scented no less. Mmmm.
