Choccie Chip

Just a quick one today guys, we’re in the process of having a new bathroom so there’s been lots of builders in the house. I had to wash my hair in the kitchen sink on Wednesday. HIGHLIGHT.

It’s been getting a little chilly outside, which I love, so I’ve been fuelling myself with lots of hot drinks and comfort foods. I’ve been making this chocolate orange hot chocolate which is quite a delight but it’s obviously missing something to dunk in it. I’ve been using Willie’s ‘Luscious Orange’ so I chopped the leftovers into massive chunks and folded them in along with some almonds, just for extra measure.

I don’t like crunchy cookies. It’s just not right. I want super soft, chewy cookies that fold off into my hands and these do exactly that. I drizzled some 50% milk over the top too because you can never have enough good chocolate. There are always people that come up to me and say ‘it’s rich, I feel satisfied after one piece’ and here’s me nodding along. You’re all insane. Eat the whole thing, go on.

  2. I agree, crunchy cookies are not right.
    Chewey, possible gooey cookies are where it’s at and these look like money right here!
    I imagine things going a little like, nom nom nom, bang, bang, bang, nom nom, nom, watch out for that pipe! Nom, nom, nom.
