C is for cookie. C is also for cake, for chocolate. So basically, C is the most delicious letter in the alphabet. Because these cookies are everything I dream of in a dessert. Gooey, loaded with chocolate, and they have SPRINKLES.
I made these treats for a murder mystery dinner my friends and I hosted this summer, complete with costumes and props and food. I’ve made them twice since for my awesome colleagues, and they demolished them.
SO, if you want to wow the crowd at this year’s cookie swap? Bring these! So let’s get to the fun stuff
Now, I personally like to load up these cookies with as many sprinkles as possible. The only reason this batch didn’t have more? I may have eating some a lot of the sprinkles straight from the tub before making these.
This resulted in me taking another trip to the market to buy more (and when you are in the middle of the Catskills that takes a while), and then I ate some more of those. Oops. It’s an addiction, don’t judge!
Basically, I will always have a soft spot for super gooey traditional chocolate chip cookies. I mean, who doesn’t? But these cookies are next level good.
If you’ve been wondering where I am, I had to take a little break from blogging (which I will talk about with you in a later post) but I’m back now with lot’s of recipe ideas! Stay up to date with my latest recipes and adventures as I get back into the kitchen, and follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest!
