As they say, why mess up a good thing?
If it is to make it better, then, sure, why not?
My go-to recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies is the good ‘ole Nestle TollHouse recipe, although I always use half a recipe…
Anyway, I had visions in my head of a two-toned cookie – a hybrid of a chocolate chip cookie and a chocolate cookie studded with peanut butter chips!
I wasn’t really sure how I was going to do it… the chocolate chip cookie part was not the problem… the chocolate cookie was the question – and I am actually quite lazy, I mean I love baking so I will bake any chance I get, but I don’t particularly like washing dishes!
Anyway, to solve my issue, I halved the batter (without chocolate chips yet) by placing approximately half in another bowl. I added half a cup of chocolate chips to one bowl and 2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa and half a cup of peanut butter chips to the other bowl.
Drop half a teaspoon of each batter side by side (or top and bottom) then bake.
The little girl saw me baking and requested that the cookies be dipped in chocolate and sprinkles. I thought it was a bit overkill but then, what they hey, why not?
We ended up with cookie pops that she brought to a playdate… it turned out that one of her playmates was having her birthday celebration that day!
