I don't get it! What happened? This weekend The Boy and I decided to make double chocolate chip cookies from a 3 in 1 cookbook I purchased on clearance from Barnes and Nobles for $9.99. I had all of the ingredients except for the chocolate chip morsels. I did have the round melting chocolate that you would buy from Michael's, to which you melt and then dip fruit in. It's the same thing, right? It's chocolate and the recipe said to melt the chocolate chips with butter, so what would it matter?
OH IT MATTERS! The batter came out the consistency of cake batter. The recipe said it would be thin, so I went with it. I refrigerated the batter for 30 minutes, just like I was instructed. The batter became firm and I made little balls and spaced them 1 1/2 inches apart, just like the directions stated.
So WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED?
The cookie balls all slid towards the center of the pan as they melted back to liquid form, and instead of 12 individual cookies, we had one large cookie. Only the inside was like pudding and not very tasty at all.
Needless to say The Boy and The BF were laughing at me, while I was almost crying. How could this be? I can bake!
