Hot Chocolate Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies
When I saw this recipe featured on Tasty Kitchen yesterday -
I knew I had to try it immediately, if not sooner.
I mean, the name alone practically put me into a chocolate coma..
In fact, before I got ready to bake them this afternoon,
I went online and cancelled my Weight Watchers account…
I am tired of paying to have a page on the internet with my name on
it remain blank for 3 months in a row…
So – for today anyway- I am accepting my extra 10 pounds as God’s
reserve plan for the future, just in case I get stuck in my house
with no food for a week or two during the winter.. besides – my whole
life has been spent not being satisfied with myself and I am tired of it!!
Whew, sure glad I got that off my chest. Hey – maybe I weigh less now..
This recipe uses 4 packages of powdered hot chocolate – which I thought was
interesting. It also has 3 different kinds of chocolate chips in it – 1 cup of each..
Did you hear that? That was the sound of Heart Surgeons all over the country
gasping in horror.. yes, I did say 3 cups of chocolate chips.. in addition
to 2 cubes of butter. Ok – so they are not the healthiest.. just make them once or
twice a year and be good all the other days. Except, of course, for Tasty Tuesdays..
Mix the two cubes of butter with 1 cup white sugar and 2/3 rds cups brown sugar,
then add two eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix till blended well.
Now mix together 3 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
4 packages of cocoa mix
After mixture is completely blended, add the secret weapons… err – chocolate chips.
(Note to self – schedule remodeling of kitchen including lighting for this winter)
There you go – now take the bowl and go sit in front
of the TV and put in the dvd of the movie Date Night… you won’t regret it..
Or you could just mix the whole thing together and bake them..
It really is your choice.
I used a cookie scoop for mine – because that’s just how I roll.
*Spoiler alert* these may be hot when they come out of the oven,
resulting in a burning sensation for those who can’t wait to taste them..
Then again – that is probably why they came up with the combo of
warm cookies and cold milk – problem solved!
So -are they good?
You don’t need me to answer that – you saw what went into them
I would say that you should pick a gloomy day
and make them as a surprise for your family. At least then it looks
like you have good intentions.. rather than waiting to make them
after everyone is in bed and hoarding them in that plastic bowl in
the freezer labeled “Brussel Sprouts”
Not that I have ever done that myself, I just hear things…
