You can serve them at almost any occasion, they are perfect for midnight snacks and are ideal treat outdoors. You will be surprised how fast the cookies will disappear during family events. Chocolate chip cookies are among the fabulous desserts everybody will be delighted in.

Now you have discovered my family’s chocolate chips cookie recipe. Personally, I like using the yellow box cake mix. Of course, you can use any of your favorite brands. Just do not forget to use the best cake flour available. Using the most ideal flour will give your chocolate cookies a little more body than any of the ordinary unbleached flour. The type of cookie sheet or baking pan you use will also affect the cooking and texture of your cookies, so choose a good quality cookie sheet.

If you like your cookies smaller in size, remember that baking time also goes down. Most ovens produce heat from the bottom, so to make sure you do not burn the bottom of the cookies, double pan them before baking.

Keep experimenting with non-traditional mixes of white and brown sugar until you achieve the version you and your family will adore. As soon as you get your most preferred combination, you will have batches of delicious chocolate chip cookies that you can enjoy anytime.

Now have that chocolatey goodness!
