I was looking for MORE chocolate chip cookie recipes because it seems that my daughter ONLY ever wants plain ‘ol chocolate chip cookies.
So I oblige.
Yes, sometimes I spoil my kid rotten, but she’s my kid and, well, honestly, we all love chocolate chip cookies. This just gives me an excuse to try another recipe.
As I was making this batter, I was going through my collection of chocolate chips, sprinkles, and left over Christmas candy that has been in the cupboard.
I still had half a bag of Green and Red Holiday Chips and Green and Red M&M Pretzels.So I had my Little Cup divide them up – Red for Valentine’s Day and Green to save for St. Patty’s Day.
I then divided the batter into three bowls and made MAN Cookies for Mr. Quart!
I added way too many mini-chips and they were so good!!
These cookies did not last long in our household!
Mr. Quart couldn’t tell that they were made with sour cream and my daughter ate the batter without complaint. I could taste a bit of a “tang” when taste-testing the batter, but there was no tang to the cookies.
Just soft, yummy cookies!
