Today I'm really in the mood for chocolate. I've been scouring my cupboards for something chocolate to eat and nothing really appealed to me. I mean I've got chocolate candy bars, chocolate pudding, chocolate rice cakes and chocolate M&M's, but they were all ok.
So I decided to look at my cookbooks and make some brownies or cookies or bars, just something that had chocolate in it. And then I found it! A recipe for Monster Chunk Cookies. The only problem is I didn't have everything I needed to make these, so I decided to kind of alter the recipe a bit.
Now the dough part is your basic cookie dough, all I did is add some semi-sweet chocolate chips (all I had left in the house) and some M&M's. There is something about chocolate chips and M&M's together in a cookie that sounds so sinful. Now I'm sure that these will work just fine with satisfying my chocolate craving, so I set to work on making these chocolate creations.
They are quick and easy to mix up and they bake up in no time. They are absolutely the thing that I was looking for when it comes to satisfying my chocolate craving. I know that you're going to love these cookies so give them a try and make sure you have a nice tall glass of milk to go along with them.
