‘Fraid this is yet another post about my latest kitchen caper. I’m not obsessed with food. Well…maybe just a little.
My workmates and I have been working very hard this past week, so I think we could do with a massive sugar hit. Rather than risk humiliating myself by presenting them with another low-cake, I thought homemade cookies would be my safest bet. I’d planned to use this choc-chip recipe from the Kitchn blog. However, when I picked up Cadbury’s Baking Chips in the grocery shop, I found an easy recipe for double choc-chip cookies conveniently printed on the back.
My cookies do not at all resemble those depicted on the baking chips packet. Mine are flatter. (Of course, they are!) They’re a lot lighter in colour — maybe because I used Cadbury’s Drinking Chocolate Powder instead of Cadbury’s Bourneville Cocoa. Never mind. They’re DELICIOUS. Not too crisp or sickly sweet. I had
six seven of them for dinner last night. I’ve made enough to power at least the next three paragraphs of my manuscript and the first half-hour of my day job today.
