My wife entered a cookie contest last week. These bad boys won first place in the chocolate cookie recipe category, as best chocolate cookie recipe. So when I tell you these are more than good, I have a panel of judges to back me up. These bars are sweet, succulent and definitely something we’ll be making all year long, but they are perfect for a Holiday buffet, so don’t pass this recipe up when you are planning your Thanksgiving or Christmas cookie baking!
This is a simple recipe, an even though I usually shy away from anything that uses a mix, in this case I’ll gladly make an exception. They make in a snap, don’t cost much and are suited for the novice baker (read: me). The results are fabulous, the oooh-and ahhhh factor is pretty high on the list. Just place a pretty pyramid of these on a shiny platter and back out of the way. But I suggest you make two batches if you want any for yourself!
I could talk forever about these, but I think I’ll just let the recipe speak for itself. It’s that good!
We need practice making these a bit prettier, but aside from the looks, they’re pretty amazing. next time I may add some spicy salt-roasted peanuts to the mix, just for a tiny bit of kick.
