Well, it’s Valentine’s week!!!
And the sweet teats, hearts, pink and red are in full swing.
My most favorite treat there is would have to be fresh-out-of-the-oven Chocolate Chip Cookies. YUM!
I shared my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe a few months ago… and I’m using it again…
…Why mess with a good thing?!?
So, these are my classic Chocolate Chip Cookies but with a Valentine’s Day twist!!
There are all sorts of different ‘valentine’ themed candies, sprinkles, chocolates. I just picked a few that appealed to me. Red and pink smarties, chocolate hearts, cookies and cream chocolate hearts, chocolate kisses and some cute heart sprinkles.
I whipped up a double batch of my favorite chocolate chip cookies, and added the smarties, sprinkles and chocolate hearts to different cookies. That way the cookies are each a bit different!
This recipe can’t go wrong, so I did a bit of experimenting and tried some cookies in my individual brownie pan as well!
Pop them in the oven, and do they ever smell good 🙂 Mmmmmmmmm!
The regular cookies turned out great!! And I love that they are all ‘valentine-ish’ but are each bit different with either the smarties, or chocolate hearts.
The square cookies turned out great as well! They have a bit more of a crunch on the edge with a soft and chewy middle.
It’s easy to take a classic recipe you know will turn out great and add a bit of a twist to make it work for any holiday.
These Chocolate Chip Cookies are SO GOOD, but with a bit of extra pink, red, and heart shaped candy, they make the perfect cookies for Valentine’s Day celebrations!
