A few weeks ago I shared a yummy recipe for chocolate dipped cookies with Sara at Applestone Drive (thanks again for having me over Sara). In case you missed it, here’s the recipe!
This recipe is a delicious way to make boring chocolate chip cookies look a little “fancier.” To make the cookies you’ll need:
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup oatmeal
*you’ll also need another cup of chocolate chips for dipping the cookies once they cool*
First, beat the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla in a bowl until combined. Add one egg at a time, beating well after each. While the wet ingredients are mixing, add the baking soda, salt, and oatmeal. Begin to stir in the flour, half a cup at a time until you’ve added it all. Stir in the milk chocolate and semi-sweet chips by hand or on low. I like to use a cup of each in my cookies. If you only have one kind, then just use that! No biggie!
Place spoonfuls of cookie dough on a baking sheet and bake each batch for 8-9 minutes at 375. This recipe makes anywhere from 4-5 dozen cookies, depending on how large you make your spoonfuls!
Once the cookies have baked and cooled, melt about 1 cup of chocolate chips (I used a combination of both kinds again) according to package directions. Dip about 1/3 of each cookie into the melted chocolate and place them on wax paper to dry.
After about 30 minutes, the chocolate had dried and hardened. I put them on a paper plate that I dressed up a bit using a hole punch and some extra ribbon I had in my ribbon stash before giving them to a friend for her birthday!
There you have it, Chocolate Dipped Chocolate Chip Cookies!
