I love Robin Eggs!  I always purchase a bag around Easter time and they are usually gone in a day.  I had this bag hidden very well until I was ready to bake!

I used Sally’s recipe from her cookbook Sally’s Candy Addiction: Tasty Truffles, Fudges & Treats for Your Sweet-Tooth Fix. ¬†I simply exchanged the regular size WHOPPERS for the MINI ROBIN EGGS. ¬†These still have the same wonderful flavor…with a touch of pastel…perfect for Spring.

I needed to chill the dough for a couple of hours, so ¬†left to run a few errands. ¬† When I came home I discovered ¬†some of the cookie dough was missing. ¬†Thankfully, I still had enough left to make a couple dozen! ¬†Raw cookie dough does not last long around my house! ¬†These cookies are easy to make, have a wonderful texture and don’t last long! ¬†You can find the recipe on my home page, or here¬†Whopper Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy Spring!

Oh who cares about other things…C is for cookie, that’s good enough for me!

I wanted to make something sweet for my girls at work on Friday.  Everyone loves chocolate chip cookies, so that was easy and I always have all the ingredients for these cookies in my kitchen. IMG_2503[1]

When I find I also have the Ghirardelli white chocolate  chips and dark molasses, it only makes sense to make these wonderful cookies as well!  They were such a big hit last time I made them.

I discovered these from Sally’s Baking Blog. ¬†I love her blog and her cookbooks! ¬†I use my cookbooks all the time and they always seem to find a way into the background of my pictures of cookies and cupcakes!

If you give a girl a cookie…

…she’s going to ask for a glass of milk!

I LOVE milk and cookies. ¬†I heard milk “does a body good”, but does that mean in large quantities and served with a side of cookies? Even so…I do allow it on special occasions.

These delicious M&M cookies were split between my husband’s office and mine! ¬†Yum! ¬†I love baking and sharing with others! ¬†It not only puts a smile on someone’s face, but hopefully keeps a few pounds off of mine!

This recipe is simply the Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip recipe with M&Ms instead of chocolate chips. ¬†I am going to try to venture out next time and see what I come up with! ¬†Stay tuned ūüôā

 

Whoppers Chocolate Chip Cookies

My family, like many of us, with the start of 2016, made a resolution to embrace a more healthy lifestyle.  So far, so good.

In fact, even when I am choosing to make healthier choices, I can usually bake cakes or cookies and not sample the batter or eat the cookie dough. ¬†So when I decided to bake this wonderful “WHOPPER Chocolate Chip Cookies” recipe I found in my new cookbook, Sally’s Candy Addiction, I was not worried at all about blowing my healthy choices.

However, after I made these, the entire house smelled of warm, fresh from the oven, chocolate chip cookies.  And then I opened my fridge and saw a cold container of milk. Needless to say, I did sample one, maybe two, but that was it! And yes, it was worth it!   I set one aside for my husband and the rest went straight to work the next morning.

I received more compliments on these cookies than any other I have brought to work. ¬†By lunch they were all gone, except for one lonely cookie. ¬†No one wanted to be “that person” who took the last cookie. ¬†Finally, one brave soul grabbed it and I took my empty container home.

These really were a perfect blend of chocolate chips and Whoppers, not to soft, not to hard and had that little something extra that made them stand out from the original Toll-House chocolate chip cookies I usually bake.
