On Saturday, I needed an activity to do with Toya to keep her from bothering me entertained. My friend, Lindsey, just had surgery (again) so I thought it would be nice if we made her some cookies. I let Toya decide what we should make…she said chocolate cookies. After searching Pinterest, I came across this recipe for Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies.
They are basically regular chocolate chip cookie ingredients with the addition of cocoa powder.
Pretty easy. We decided to make a double batch so we could eat some, give some away and Toya could take some home with her. I started out by showing her how to measure ingredients and then let her try it out.
OMG, this was basically torture to watch because I just wanted to do it for her. I already know I’m a horrible teacher and this didn’t help. Plus, I made her wash her hands just about every 12 seconds because I was afraid of what she was doing when I wasn’t watching. I know, I’m a psycho. Whatever.
I let her crack two eggs (I cracked the other two). When she cracked the first one, she basically squashed the egg in her hand and I freaked out. I don’t know how shells did not end up in the batter. I made her crack the other using both hands.
After mixing everything together Toya was up my ass politely asked to lick the beater.
She’d already consumed about 2 tons of sugary cereal by this point so I only have myself to blame for any (and all) of her behavior. And, of course, I gave her the beater…that’s the best part!
While I baked the cookies, Toya watched another movie (or two) and waited to see end the result.
I’m not a big chocolate fan, but these cookies were good. As the cookies baked, the chocolate chips moved to the middle of them so there ended up being a surprise layer of chocolate when you bit into them. Not too bad.
We had a really great time with Toya and it will be a lot of fun to do it again. Maybe with a little less sugar.
For both of us.
