Sometimes too much of a good thing is not enough…

I can’t recall there every being a time that I have had too much chocolate. I know I echo many people’s thoughts when I say chocolate has magical powers. It really does! One bite of chocolate can instantly alter my mood; I can go from grumpy to perky, gloomy to cheerful, annoyed to content, the list goes on and on. What other item can do that? Plus, it’s so easy to obtain, even office supply stores sell it just in case you find yourself in a desperate situation at the checkout stand.

One of my favorite and easiest recipes that satisfy my need for this delightful ingredient is my Chocolate White Chocolate Chip Cookies.  The dough is chocolate based and the mixture of the white chocolate chips and chocolate chips packs a huge chocolaty punch. I add espresso powder to this recipe as the taste of the coffee really brings out the flavors in this cookie. Enjoy! 🙂
