Who doesn’t love a soft, doubley chocolatey, chocolate- chocolate chip cookie fresh and warm out of the oven? 😀
Right?! 😀 There’s just something so comforting and homey about them.
Awhile back, I heard that adding instant pudding mix to your batter was the new sensation to try for chocolate chip cookies, so who was I to miss out?
I decided to use chocolate pudding instead, though, and add just a tad of espresso powder for extra fun!
But the crowning glory was the bit of sea salt that I sprinkled on top! 😀
Yes. Sea salt.
I LOVE it with chocolate! So why not on cookies, too, right? 😀 Exactly. 😉
And it was DIVINE. I only added a little bit to one cookie to test, but next time I’ll be more confident that it works and add a little more and do the whole batch this way! So you can add how ever much you enjoy, or leave it off completely.
I also added chopped pecans, but you can add whatever nuts you like such as walnuts, cashews, macadamias or even the humble peanut! 😀
I used a high quality chocolate chip for these, Ghirardelli actually, and they were so much better than just regular ones that I now never want to go back! I’m spoiled forever now.
It was a perfect ending to a perfect day! My hubby has a new job, and life is finally back to normal! 😀
These cookies were sinfully addictive, and would make for a VERY nice treat for Valentine’s Day! The men in your family will especially love these! Nothing too froo-froo, just plain delicious! 😉 😀
Definitely keep these in mind for a simple, comforting treat whether they’re for a holiday, or just something special to cheer up a weekday! I’m sure that you will really enjoy these!
Take care all, and I’ll see you next week! 😀 ~Kelly
