I'm trying to keep my business, my triplets, and my waistline under control. I excel at one of those, fail at another one of those, and one is a work in progress. Which is which is day dependant.

Everything's Better With Chocolate


While not everything in life can be solved with a little bit of chocolate, the ensuing sugar haze can certainly make thing seem a lot brighter in the short term. Given my recent emotional experiences, I highly recommend these cookies as a mood-enhancer. Easy and fun to make, get the kids involved and try not to eat all the raw batter (or at least put some aside so the kids don't eat all of it.)

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies
(originally from allrecipes.com)
Yield: About 30

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

Directions

  1. Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  2. Melt 1 cup of chocolate chips over low heat. Cream butter and sugar. Add melted chocolate chips and vanilla; beat in eggs; add flour mixture and remaining chocolate chips.
  3. Wrap in plastic and freeze until firm (about 20 minutes).
  4. Make small balls (1 inch); roll in confectioners' sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Cool on wire rack.
Enjoy!
