Hey, want to change up a cookie recipe? I like to use alternatives with my chocolate chip cookie from my last post. I love classic Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, but another thing I like to replace it is the Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chunks, or the Mini Chips. You can also use M n M's... Yum! Yum!
Have fun trying different flavored chips as well, white chocolate, butterscotch, peanut butter and chocolate, etc. Post what you think about the outcome!

I am so excited to be starting a recipe blog! I love baking and always enjoy sharing my goodies that I bake with friends and family.
Today I made two different kinds of cookies and a hot fudge ice cream topping. We are going to a family cook-out tonight and I love to bring something, so I decided to make plenty!
I made the chocolate chip cookies that everyone loves! Aaaah!!!!
Then, I made my brother-in-law's favorite~oatmeal cookies.
Lastly, I make from scratch, a yummy chocolate fudge sauce for topping the homemade ice cream that my mother-in-love is making. I'm sure all will be enjoyed and consumed very quickly tonight!
And now: ~my cookies~
