This was such a great find. I was strolling through the grocery store (one of my favorite places) and stumbled upon this:
And seriously….how could I not make a cookie with this?
So I did. I made a perfectly soft, chewy cookie that has a super wow factor. I really love this cookie recipe because it does not require an electric mixer. It is all mixed in a bowl with a wooden spoon. Super easy, delicious cookies that can be made by anyone!
I used some Hershey’s Baking Melts to make these cookies. I got the baking melts at Food Blogger Forum last month (thanks Hershey!) and was dying to use them in a cookie. Since the baking melts are pretty large, I used an ice cream scoop to make some super large cookies. Of course, if you can’t find baking melts you can use regular chocolate chips. I would up the amount of chips to 1 1/2 cups though.
This month I get to share these cookies as part of Leftovers Club. Yeah, Chung-Ah, you are going to need a large glass of milk.
