I decided that I needed to bake again. I’d been thinking about more salted chocolate cookies of some sort, and a week or two ago, I picked up some JIF Mocha Cappuccino Hazelnut Spread. I decided I could use that, some semi-sweet chocolate chips and some Fleur de Sel to make a decadent cookie.
Salted Mocha Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cookies. Crispy. Salty. Sweet.
So very delicious. And the recipe makes a LOT. I think I wound up with about 5 dozen, give or take.
The bambino ate a few while they were cooling…As did Jay….And of course, I had to sample some myself, for quality control purposes, of course!
I have enough that I’m sending a bunch to work with Jay. The bambino and I will no doubt polish off the rest. Between these and the Almond Cupcakes, I think I’m dessert-ed-out right now. And cookies are such a dangerous thing to have around. We discussed it at a WW meeting one time, because people were giving me grief about all the cupcakes I make. I made the point that it’s much more work to eat a cupcake than it is to grab a handful of cookies and just pop those like chips! No matter.
I’ve been kind of slack about this (it’s been a long week), but just as a reminder, you have until 6:00 tomorrow night to enter my Progresso Soup Giveaway–I don’t know about the rest of the country, but here in the middle of nowhere, it’s a deep-freeze and a big hot bowl of soup sounds pretty good right about now!
