Last night, Stephen and I bolted out the door 20 minutes before midnight to go by Diddy Reise to get cookies before it closed. On the way down, I ended up getting food at In-n-Out (so.yummy) and got my cookies to eat at home. Those lovely cookies that I was too full to eat, sadly got left at Stephen’s apartment and have probably already been eaten by them. So I decided that I would just make my own version of the cookies that I missed out on.
These cookies were always Stephen’s favorite cookies when we would go to Diddy Reise. When ever he said that it had white chocolate in it, I would instantly say “ew, white chocolate is poser chocolate” because I mean, technically, it’s true! Finally, I decided I would try it and mmmmmm I was wrong! The white chocolate is the perfect balance to all of the rich chocolate. It’s almost like a mini glass of milk with your cookie 🙂
When I told my parents that this is what I was making, they too had the same reaction that I had initially. “Ehhhh, I dont like white chocolate”. Lets just say I converted them over too.
