Chocolate Chip Cookies with a Secret

Chocolate Chip Cookies with a Secret

Adina S 0

"This was a basic cookie recipe I converted into a secret recipe using my wildest imagination. It's since become a family favorite, as well as one friends enjoy. If you are brave enough to try these (don't worry, you won't regret it!), play the 'guess what's in these cookies?' game. Your family will surely be surprised at this great mixture of flavors! Praline paste may be substituted for chestnut paste. "

Surprisingly good! My family could not guess the ingredients! They're already begging me to make another batch tomorrow when we have company over. I think I will! Thanks so much for submitting t...

These are the only thing that Jeremy Axlerad has eaten all day. That drop of lemon juice really sealed the deal.

I really liked them! okay so they were good.A great recipe!!!!

All the ingredients are well worth it. I used Hazel Nut Hot Chocolate instead of regular hot chocolate for a little extra nuttiness. I love salty chocolate anything but I did reduce the amount...
