Magic in the Middles. That is what these cookies are called. Last night it was Levi's night to make dessert for family home evening. What is family home evening? Don't get ahead of yourself. I'll answer that in a minute. Right now we're talking about cookies. Dessert. Chocolate. Don't get side tracked.
Levi wanted to make the standard chocolate chip cookies. I showed him this recipe. No. He wanted chocolate chip cookies. I over ruled him. I knew when he had these he'd have wished he'd made these. That's my theory and I'm sticking to it.
The truth is he got mad at me and left me to making the cookies myself. Lesson to all other moms out there. Make what your kids want, life is short, spend time with your kids, if they want chocolate chip cookies make them with your kids. Note I did not follow my own advice. I'm the expert and know what is best for The Native's. Mom getting her chocolate fix in the way she wants/likes it. Not that I have anything against chocolate chip cookies mind you, it's just I wanted something different. So I won cuz I'm the mum! Case dismissed.
P.S. Magic in the middles is a deceiving name for these cookies. They imply that there is magic in the middle of the cookies....... there is........ but there is also magic in your middle when you eat one.... or two...... or......... aint gonna admit how many. You watch your middle grow right before your eyes. True story!
Family Home Evening. Monday night. Don't mess with it. This is the night where our family spends the evening together. I'm serious! Don't mess with my Monday night. You call, I aint gonna answer. Native's try to plan something on that night and they know I'll rip their faces off. My night to have us all under one roof as a family. Anyone tries to mess with that and they find themselves in my back yard cleaning up dog bombs.............
Chocolate surprise cookies anyone? They're magical!
