This is a public service announcement. For all you innovative thinkers and die-hard believers, go do you. Don’t be afraid of what The Man has to say about your ridiculous ideas and true efforts to create. For all you naysayers and Debbie Downers, eat some cake. Give love a chance. Hug a dog. Don’t take life so seriously. Be happy. But most
importantly relevantly, don’t knock it till you try it.
Sometimes you want chocolate chip cookies and you have no brown sugar. But you do have a large tub of molasses. Wam bam shazam half a cup of normal people sugar and a teaspoon of molasses later, crisis averted.
I have nothing more to say for myself. Except for I’m not the first to think of this, so…don’t blame me. And to go do something crazy and ridiculous and love it. Yeah. That’s about it.
Let’s take a closer look at that. In case you missed it. That’s popcorn in a batter of chocolate chip cookies.
Have a great, productive day. And Eid Mubarak!
Popcorned Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes about 15 cookies
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips
As much popcorn as you like
-These would also benefit from some coarse sea salt for sprinkling
Combine butter and brown sugar until creamy. Add vanilla and egg. Combine dry ingredients and add to butter etc. Stir in chocolate chips. Carefully fold in popped popcorn kernels. Cook in oven at 350 degrees F for 8-10 minutes. Let cool before eating.
Recipe note: these are one of maybe no other cookies that I have discovered to be better a day old, so try and save some for tomorrow. I’m not entirely sure why, but I’ll bet it helps that everything is cooled cool enough to experience all tehe flavors and texture together. Yum.
