Hershey's Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies


There's really no need for a play-by-play here. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. But first, confession time. I always have to think when I'm spelling the word chocolate. Does that ever happen to you? Is there a word that always stumps ya? Seriously, it's like I'm back in second grade and I have to sound it out every time I go to spell it. Maybe it's because the way I pronounce it isn't "correct." Did you know that there are actually three syllables in there? But nah, the Jersey in me only makes it two. Chock-let. You got a problem with that? Well pronounce it however you want, I'm sure we can all agree on one thing: it's pretty awesome stuff.


My friend Lisa made that hot chocolate up there in her Vitamix. It was FANTASTIC. She just threw some "stuff" in the blender and went to town--light sweet cream, water, cocoa, a packet of powder dream whip and a spoon of dark chocolate frosting (now you know why it was so good!) She just eyeballed everything.



Helpful hint: I've found the best way to bake cookies is on a Pampered Chef stone (I use the large bar pan, round pizza stone, and/or the cookie stone). The cookies bake evenly and never burn. So if you're having trouble with all your cookies looking like they're "chocolate," try using a stone. You can thank me later when you win first place at the county fair.



 


Have a delicious day!

  1. Yummy, and chocolate has 4 syllables in spanish. :) The cookies look delish and my PC stones are one thing that did not make the trip to CR.

    Eat one for me!

  2. Great pics, great cookies and great friends!
    (BTW-too true about cookies looking "chocolate" - aka burned if not cooked on a stone. Been there, done that) :(

  4. These cookies are good. In college my friend and I made them often. And in the south we put about 10 more syllables than needed in every word.
