Easy Soft Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies



I have a confession, I'm not one of those people who love chocolate. I have to be in the mood for it. Don't get me wrong, I love snickers, and Hersey bars with almonds. But just plain chocolate. Not so much. I remember being a child and going to Wendy's with my parents and having a softy for $1. I remember it was so huge. However, after two or three sips. I would typically give it to one of my siblings. I remember thinking to myself. Who don't they make other flavors for $1. (thankfully they do now) That also applied to plain and chocolate milk at school. All I wanted was strawberry milk. (sigh) As an adult I typically reach for all things caramel and/or strawberry. Yes, I'm one of those people who like strawberry caramel sundaes. However, I was in one of those moods for some super yummy chocolate chip cookies, and boy. This recipe did not disappoint. I opted to use the mini chocolate chips because I had them on hand and my family loved them. Our home smelled amazing, and these cookies were so yummy warm. (also had them cooled too). What I love about this recipe is that I was able to make the recipe without the assistance of my Kitchen Aid mixer which was a plus for me because cleanup was a breeze.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
