No problem! I usually don't eat them out of hand, but love them for baking - something about when they're melted, they transform into something great, and are better than the actual raw bars. Also, I find that the baking bars are actually better for eating than their regular chocolate bars, which I don't like at all.

Today I'm baking an apple pie. I usually add cinnamon to the mix. It gives a great flavour.

I baked these for the third time with a few minor tweaks - insanely good!

Hello,

I cut down both sugars by 2 Tbsp each, and used all semi-sweet chocolate (from Ghirardelli semi-sweet baking bars) instead of 5 ounces 55 percent chocolate, and 5 ounces 70 to 72 percent chocolate as specified in the recipe.(As much as I love very bittersweet chocolate, when I used half 70% the first time I made these, I found it too bitter for this type of cookie). I also cut the chocolate into very coarse chunks, and used 1/2 tsp fine salt instead of 1 tsp Kosher salt.

I dropped by very rounded Tbsp, and rolled into balls as indicated - only 6 cookies per large baking sheet, because they spread a lot. They're nice and chewy in the centers and crispy on the edges (Didn't do the optional misting of water for softer cookies - loved the texture as is - perfection).

Let me know if you make these!

I baked two pumpkin pies last night so those will hold us for a few days.

I have a strange brother who hates getting gifts, for Christmas or Birthdays or whatever. So if I want to give him a gift it has to have a reason. I made a batch of Chunky candy bars and let him know that I hate raisons and dh bought too many. So I was using them up. That is all true but I had planned that this is what I would give him for Christmas. I just had to wait a while to do it. Families are so strange! Especially mine.

Ugh, don't we all... If only all the yummiest foods could be healthy and low calorie
