Now for something tasty

Food has been on my mind lately. Okay, so food is always on my mind. I like to eat. I like to pretend I'm a chef in the kitchen. I make dinner most nights and this isn't a chore because I like to cook, only don't tell my family. I make my kids clean the kitchen because I did the cooking.

 I've been thinking about food because I'm trying to lose the layers of fluffy I have accumulated over time. But every now and then, people need a treat. My boys can blow through a dozen cookies in a few minutes and of course they don't gain an ounce. I try not to resent them. So, I make them yummy things to eat like Chocolate Triple Threat Cookies.

We're friends, aren't we? I thought so. That's why I'm going to share the recipe with you.

Chocolate Triple Threat Cookies

Chocolate cookie with dark chocolate and white chocolate

·        1 ¼ cup butter, softened

·        2 cups sugar

·        2 eggs

·        2 tsp vanilla

·        2 cups all purpose flour

·        1 cup cocoa powder

·        1 tsp baking soda

·        1 tsp salt

·        1 cup nuts

·        1 cup dark chocolate bits

·        1 cup white chocolate bits

Directions: Cream butter and sugar in large mixing bowl. Add eggs and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients (flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt) and blend into wet mixture. Stir in chocolate bits and nuts if desired. Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-9 minutes. Cookies will puff while cooking and flatten once cool.  Makes about 4 ½ dozen.
Don't burn your fingers trying to eat them before they're cool.


  1. Are you trying to give me 'fluffy bits' Margueritte?

  2. Lol! A few fluffy bits are okay, Mike. Just as long as we don't have fluffy layers.

    Maria, these are the best cookies. You can't have too much chocolate.
