Imagine this: See’s Candies and chocolate chip cookies — all in one.
If that doesn’t get your lips smacking, I don’t know what will.
Now, you can enjoy the truly blissful taste of the two together with See’s Candies new semi-sweet chocolate chips. There’s even a cookie recipe included on the back of the package to make baking a batch super easy.
The chips are larger than your usual ones — about 1/2-inch in diameter. What that means is when the cookies come out of the oven, you get so much more ooey-gooey chocolate in every bite.
The recipe makes perfect chocolate chip cookies, too — crispy on the edges, chewy in the center and with a load of chocolate chips throughout.
That’s even more true because I used the entire 1-pound bag of chips for the recipe. It calls for 2 cups of the chips. But really, once you measure that out, you don’t have very many chips left in the bag, so you might as well use them all.
See’s gets its chocolate from the fabulous Guittard Chocolate Company of Burlingame to make its wonderful, homespun candies. Guittard is also the source of the chocolate for these chips.
A bag is $5.55 at See’s stores or on its Web site.
With high-season for cookie baking just around the corner, there’s no better time to try a bag.
