{chocolate dipped cookies}

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

2 eggs

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!
