"Perfectly Chocolate" Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have a little 'thing' for chocolate. I know most of us do.  But, since my daughter was born I also have a 'thing' for simplicity.  Sure, my best friends could tell stories of me spending days on end in the kitchen creating a fabulous cake with imported chocolates.  But, that my friends was my pre-mom life.

I love finding things that I can simplify so I can enjoy every precious moment with my family.  Hershey's is a great place to look for classic simplicity.  I found this delicious recipe for "Doubly Chocolate" Chocolate Chip Cookies with a few adjustments they were just that!  Perfect for us and I am sure they will be perfect for you too!!!

Pasta Fagioli is an incredible hearty traditional Italian dish that you HAVE to try.  Loaded with Italian flavor, its so good you may need to double the recipe!  How do you say it?  Well you don't say it.  You eat it silly!

  1. Everything looks wonderful, as usual Donna! Love that Pasta Fagioli - the colors are amazing!

  2. Mmmm...These double chocolate cookies look delicious!

  3. What??! Those days are over for good? Somehow I doubt that. You enjoy it all far too much to give it up forever. Although, I suspect they might be over for the next 3-4 years at least. I'll place my order now for a birthday cake in 2016. Have a blessed day!

  4. Thanks for sharing your double chocolate chip cookies. They're delish! I did reduce the sugar a bit because I don't like very sweet desserts.

  5. This recipe was exactly what I was looking for. It came out amazing. It is just my hubby and I at home, so I halved the recipe. Perfect. Now I have something to beat that chocolate craving!

  7. I added coconut to half the batch and topped some with almonds and some with walnuts. They were all delicious! I love that so far, all of your cookie recipes I have used make a cookie that is soft & chewy in the middle! Thanks, Deb in Tx
