I gave a batch of basic chocolate chip cookies a cheerful twist with cherry chips and almond bits. And these have turned out to be my new favorite cookies. At least for this week anyway. ; )
I used blanched slivered almonds and chopped them up pretty fine … because I don’t like a lot of crunch in my cookies.
And the cherry flavor came from these NEW dark chocolate cherry flavored morsels. I first enjoyed them at an event hosted by Nestle a couple of weeks ago to showcase some of their new products launching in September. You may have already seen them in stores though.
They also come filled with caramel, peanut butter and mint flavor. Too fun! Oh and keep your eyes open in the freezer section too because they now have frozen cookie dough to answer all our late night cookie cravings. YAY!
Scooping is very satisfying to me for some reason. You can roll them in a few extra almond pieces of you like.
I love seeing these little domes of dough right before they go in the oven.
But I love them even more warm right out of the oven.
Here’s a quick little flipagram from the Nestle Event . It was a fun time filled with amazing chefs, new friends, great food and of course lots of chocolate.
