How would you finish this sentence? When the power came back on I______________. For me, besides laundry and vacuuming, I baked! Right before the hurricane my husband and I went out to get provisions and I found for the first time Nestle DARK Chocolate morsels.
I bought two bags and put them away in my baking bin until I could find a recipe that called out for them. Then the power went out and I decided to organized the huge pile of recipes I had torn from magazines: putting them in clear sleeves and filing them in ring binders. While I was at it, I found the recipe for Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies which called for dark chocolate chips. So, when the power came back on, I got my chance to use the chips!
The recipe, from Cooking Light, is a paired down version of a classic. At 96 calories a cookie and ingredients that include browned butter, whole wheat flour, semi-sweet and dark chocolate it is perfect for my lunch box or as an afternoon treat.
