When the weather starts to cool down, Stephen and I both get excited about the fact that it’s “hot chocolate weather” once again. We stock up on a big box of hot chocolate (that contains individual packets). When I saw this recipe on Tasty Kitchen several weeks ago, I knew that I had to give it a try.
I only had one type of chocolate chips, and since Stephen doesn’t like white chocolate, I didn’t want to go out and buy the other chocolate chips; I decided to work with what I have on hand. We both enjoyed these cookies, but Stephen thinks my regular chocolate chip cookies taste better. I think that if I had made these cookies with all three types of chocolate chips, they would have been that much more delicious. My verdict? Don’t skimp on the chocolate chips, otherwise it’s just not worth it.
