Sweets in general are a weakness of mine, but a chocolate chip cookie with a slight twist is just irresistible. A great characteristic of this classic treat is that typically most people have the correct ingredients to bake them without making a trip to the grocery store. That fact alone, paired with the taste of a warm, chocolate chip filled bite make these a great and easy go to dessert when you get invited somewhere spur of the moment. That exact scenario happened to me the other day and as I was sitting on the couch waiting for MAC to arrive home so we could head to our friends, a light bulb went off and I thought how simple it would be to whip up a batch of my mom's famous Killer Cookies; I always strive to contribute something when friends invite us over, and a home made dessert is an option you just can't go wrong with.
These little mounds of ooooey gooooey goodness are "killer", in a delectably scrumptious way, and I promise you'll enjoy every last bite of them.
