Happy Monday Everyone!!
Here's how my Monday started. 12:10 AM the thunder wakes me up. Now with that being said, I do not like storms. I'm not terrified, but I could do without the thunder. Our 60 lb love bug, Mason, feels the same way. He sleeps on the back deck, and I felt awful for him last night. SO, I went outside and brought him in for the night. He slept in the bathroom on one of our comforters. Well, let's not forget Tedi. He knew his buddy was coming in, so I had to let him stay in the bathroom too or else....there would be scratching and barking until they were reunited. Goodness :)
4:30. Chris's alarm goes off. I sleep deeper than he does, but I ALWAYS wake up first when that thing goes off. Finally, I convince him to shut the blasted thing off, and by 6AM I am up for the day.
I'm sure you're wondering when the cookie is going to come into the picture :)
Well, I completed some NCLEX questions, worked out with Insanity Insane Abs(so much sweat...ew), and then lunch. YUM!!
So the afternoon keeps ticking on and I'm bored. What's better than whipping something sweet up to enjoy? The answer: nothing.
I perused Pinterest, and found this recipe. I slightly modified it because I didn't have the chips, and I added a little bit of me. Here we go:
3/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg and 1 yolk
2 cups flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cups chocolate chips.
Because I didn't have the chips I had to change mine up a little bit. I had a melting chocolate. I just grabbed a cube and chopped it.
Mix the butter and 2 sugars together. Once they are combined and smooth, add in the egg. Stir in. Next, mix in the flour, baking soda, salt, and vanilla.
After all this is mixed together, fold in the chips or if you're like me, the chopped chocolate.
Preheat your oven to 350 and grease your cast iron skillet.
Pour the batter evenly into the skillet.
Another me touch: Pour caramel sauce over the batter and top with sprinkles. The best are rainbow.
Bake it for about 15 minutes or until the edges are slightly brown. The inside will look like its not finished baking, but it will look more solid once you set it out to cool.
