I have been holding on to this sweet little recipe for a few weeks now. Boy, was today ever a day for chocolate……actually the whole week was sort of a “I need chocolate badly” kind of week. But I am not going to get into all of that, as this is suppose to be a delightful little post to lift the spirits. I mean the name is Triple Threat Chocolate, am I right? So you didn’t come this way for anything more than to find out what how we are going to get those endorphins kickin’. Well this deliciously sweet chocolatey wonderfulness will do it for you I promise! This cookie has a slight crunchy exterior with a soft lovely middle and is oh so good with a glass of cold milk.
I found this great little cookie over at letsspicethingsupinvegas. Elly gave it a little bit of a different name but it is the same great cookie! She stated in her post, that the base of this recipe is used in a lot of her cookie recipes. She just changes a few key ingredients to give the cookie a completely different flavor and texture. That is so clever! I just LOVE recipes like this one, that can be so versatile and unique. Go check out her different cookie recipes to see what I mean. She has many wonderful recipes that I hope to try someday.
Oh, I so want another batch of theses sweet little lovlies right now! I hope you will give them a try and most definetly ENJOY!!!!
