CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

Chocolate. Chip. Cookies. The only kind of cookie I need for the rest of my life. It’s a total classic, but never gets old. Who could get bored with chocolate chip cookies, right? Certainly not me, or my toddler son. Chocolate chip are his favorite. I guess he got his sweet tooth from his mama!

I’ve always been searching for the perfect chewy, yet fluffy, chocolate chip cookie. Well, this is it. It’s also packed full of Hershey milk chocolate bars. With every bite, you get a morsel of decadent, gooey milk chocolate. Did I mention that they are best right out of the oven? Well, you probably knew that already. I don’t think I’ve ever let a batch of cookies cool without having a bite of one…or two. It’s hard to resist hot cookies right out of the oven! The scent alone will make my mouth water.

If you love cookies like I do, you’ll eat these hot out of the oven with a cold glass of milk on the side. Or with a bowl of vanilla ice cream… Häagen- Dazs vanilla… if you want to get specific. It’s the best there is… next to Blue Bell of course. This is by far the best and only way to enjoy cookies!
