Chocolate choc chip cookies

Embracing my kids in the kitchen is really paying off.

Chocolate Choc Chip Cookies

Just the other day I sat on the lounge with a cuppa, flicking through a magazine, while chatting to my son who was in the kitchen testing out his creation for Chocolate Choc Chip Cookies. The recipe invention had been on his mind for a while (off course it had to be chocolate on chocolate!)

So on the weekend between basketball and golf he whipped up this batch and saved me having to think about a healthy treat for lunch boxes this week.Winning!

He had a couple of attempts with this recipe (mum got involved the first time and apparently wrecked it a bit) before he was happy for me to blog it. And he wants me to tell you that for some reason, they are yummier after a couple of days!

 NB: My kids are used to less sugar in recipes, if you are just starting to transition your kids away from sugar, you may decide you need more. A sneaky taste of the batter will tell.

Why not spread some Notella on top for some extra decadent deliciousness!

      Not sure Rita, ours always are nice, not overly moist, but just right. Is it possible you over mixed the batter?
