The Softest Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

I finally made the perfect chocolate chip cookies! First of all, I have to tell you that I  love anything with chocolate chips. We have a friend who makes the fluffiest, softest chocolate chip cookies that my husband goes nuts over. When I try to make cookies like hers, they come out flat and not soft at all. I’m happy to say I have figured out the perfect cookie recipe now and excited to share it with you!

I thought my flat cookies must have been my oven, the cookie sheet, or the cookie fairy just didn’t like me! I have always been good at making cakes, but cookies not so much. Well, no more!

If you have ever had cookies come out flat, then you must try this recipe for the softest chocolate chip cookies! Believe me, you won’t be disappointed!

Cake Mix Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies Recipe

When I’m cruising through the grocery store and I see Cadbury Mini Eggs for the first time on the shelves, it’s like a record scratch. When I saw them, I thought, WE MUST make Cake Mix Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies! As impossible as it may seem to improve upon the crispy shelled magic of a Cadbury Mini Egg, I found that adding them to a cake mix cookie was a buttery, delicious way of prolonging my enjoyment of this seasonal treat. Because, if motivated (or left unsupervised,) I can power through an entire bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs in under a day, but would consider wolfing down a whole batch of cookies pretty challenging.

Challenging, not impossible.

Cadbury Mini Eggs have hit store shelves! THIS IS NOT A DRILL. It’s time to make the most of those chocolatey jewels and whip up Cadbury Mini Egg Chocolate Cookies. We were first inspired to create a blonde and buttery version of this cookie with regular milk chocolate Cadbury Mini Eggs which you can find here, but never one to be creatively limited in the kitchen, I saw fit to toss a few bags of the WHITE chocolate Cadbury Mini Eggs into my basket to see if my suspicions were true…that a chocolate cake mix cookie and a white chocolate egg could come together for sweet Easter bliss. I WAS RIGHT!

Cadbury Mini Egg Chocolate Cookies have made all of my dreams come true.

Christmas Cookie Roundup

PicMonkey Collage1

Look, if you’re like me either go big or go home when it comes to the holidays and that includes Christmas cookie exchanges, even the friendly neighborhood kind.

I came home a champion last year for “Most Unique” using my friend Carina’s original recipe for Caramel Biscoff Blossoms (you’re gonna want to make those, stat) and I don’t intend on giving up my title any time soon – which has involved mapping out my strategy and game plan for this year’s exchange well in advance.

My preparation is your payoff as I present the most thorough Christmas Cookie Roundup EVER.

Grab a glass of milk or whatever you drink if milk doesn’t agree with you and LET’S GET TO BAKING!
