The only time I really drink milk is when it’s dressed up like this…
After work today I rushed home to make a batch of chocolate chip cookies for my daughters class party. Much to my surprise, someone has been in the fridge and the chocolate chip bag has only a few morsels laying in the bottom. I think it’s time to install the ‘fridge-cam’ that I have seriously pondered inventing. For the amount of time I spend in the kitchen, I have no idea how my chocolate supply keeps going missing! I had no other choice but to use chocolate chunks!
Oh my goodness, these warm cookies were so yummy with a huge glass of cold milk…. I had to keep counting them to make sure I would have enough for the party!
Super easy to make too..
