I think I’ve mentioned our household fondness for chocolate. It’s been snowy and cold here this early October and it’s sent me back into the kitchen for some baking. After daddy devoured the peanut butter cookies (with Hershy Kisses on top) I felt a little sad for the boys. Mostly my oldest coming home from school hoping to have a cookie and alas, no cookies. I didn’t feel like making another batch of regular chocolate chip cookies so I gave this one a try. It makes about 4-5 dozen cookies so you could easily cut in half.
Now I’ve mentioned my unusual lack of obsession with chocolate. I think one note should be made here. I LOVE chocolate cookie and brownie and cake dough/batter, mmmm. However, once baked I generally can take or leave the finished goodies. These cookies are truly delicious! The dough is rich and chocolatey and the cookies come out soft and chewy, just the way the hubby likes them. Hope you enjoy them too!
