Anna: Chocolate chip cookies. I learnt to cook them standing on a chair next to my mother as a child. So, as you know, I only ever make the same recipe using Toll House chocolate chips. The recipe is on the back of the packet.
Peter: That’s why we have to smuggle bags of them back into the country every year when we go to visit your dad.
Anna: Indeed. But, you need something sweet to take to work and I was in the mood to try this recipe. It gave me the excuse to use up all the leftover bits of chocolate I’ve got in the cupboard.
Peter: All the chocolate’s gone?! What chocalate have you used?
Anna: Just the dark and white cooking chocolate from the deserts I’ve made over the last month. Panic not. Your Dairy Milk megabar has not been touched.
Peter: Normally you see the chips in the cookies. With these you don’t necessarily know what you’re going to get with each bite. I like that.
Anna: I had to chop them up so some melted into big pools of loveliness didn’t they?
Peter: I liked these. They aren’t too brittle but have a nice soft texture. They would taste good with ice cream.
Anna: Mmm. Ice cream sandwiches!! Yes, I agree. These are lovely. And, in some ways easier to cook. I don’t have to work out what a cup of butter is, for example. I will definitely be making these again. Perhaps my chip-smuggling days are over….
Peter: Does that mean there’s more room in the bag for bike bits?
Ella: Those biscuits were amazing! I really liked the chocolate-y bits. And they were nice and crunchy.
