Monday Munchies!!

Many of you have done blogs with recipes on them and so I thought I would give you some of my favorites and of course, they will mostly be sweet recipes. Well, because I LOVE sugar and anything with sugar and chocolate...oh, so yummy. In my 8 short years of marriage if Chris and I have the munchies, he goes for nachos, pizza or something like that (which is a meal to me); I on the other had go for the cookies, cakes, brownies, etc.

We have some friends moving this week and are having them over for dinner tonight and I made one of my favorite cookies for dessert and thought I would share it with you. If you LOVE chocolate and gooey cookies then these are for you. I would warn you to be careful because after tasting them you will want to eat the ENTIRE batch.

So here goes...


12 oz. Chocolate Chips (I always add a little Chris says, "If a little is good, then alot is better.")
1 C. Butter
1C. Sugar
1 Egg
2 T. Milk
1 t. Vanilla
3 C. Flour
1 t. Baking Poder
1/2 t. Baking Soda
1/2 t. Salt
1/2 C. Sugar

**Lightly spray pan with non-stick spray.**

1. Melt 1 C. chocolate chips. Set aside.

2. Beat butter and sugar together. Add egg, milk, vanilla, and melted chocolate chips.

3. Combine dry ingredients and add to cream mixture.

4. Stir in remaining chips. This is when I add a little more chocolate chips.

5. Roll into balls and then roll in the 1/2 C. sugar.

6. Bake at 400 degrees for 6 - 8 minutes.
**I know this is not very long to bake and when you pull them out of the oven they
will not look done; however, when they cool they have a slight crunch at first
and then yummy gooiness (is that a word?).
