Hot Chocolate Cookies

I love to try out new recipes no matter if they are ones I created in my head, ones I found on-line or in a  cookbook. Over the years, I have tried recipes from a lot of chefs, one who seems to match my cooking style is Rachael Ray. As a mother, you've got to appreciate the concept of a 30 Minute Meal! Rachael Ray often says that her recipes are just methods. She encourages her viewers to take her recipes and make them their own. I "Lori-ize" almost everything I cook, tailoring the recipe to my families taste. I decided to combine these two ideas and what you see here is the result. Each week I'll create a meal based on a recipe and let you know what we thought. I will give you the original recipe and let you know how I "Lori-ized" it.  Hope you enjoy Tasty Tuesday!

Heather at Out of the Box Into the Kitchen, posted a recipe recently for Hot Chocolate Cookies... this sounded good to me.  So when we were getting ready for our first football game, I decided to test it out.  It wasn't my weekend to bring desert, but I bring cookies to almost every game... just cause.

I didn't make any alterations to this recipe.  I used Swiss Miss Dark Chocolate Sensation as the hot chocolate.

Richard and I thought these cookies were a bit dry and not quite what we expected.  But the next day, at tailgating I found them better.  The people there were raving over then and some went back for more.  I still think something may have been a bit off, but I'm not sure what.  Maybe it was the dark chocolate instead of the milk chocolate?  I don't know

I will say that as the weekend went on, I found that it tasted more like a chocolate doughnut to me.

Hmmm not sure.  They were really good right out of the oven and people liked them. They were pretty easy to make.  We will see if I pull this recipe out again.
