I have recentily become obsessed with pinterest. Which is how i came across this awesome skillet cookie recipe By Molly..hi molly! http://mollycorinne.wordpress.com/2012/01/29/skillet-cookie/. Her recipe calls for bittersweet chocolate, but i used some Hershey's special dark chocolate chips I found at the market during the holidays and had hidden in my freezer..they worked perfectly with the whole wheat cookie! This cookie has a very nutty taste. I suppose you could also use All-purpose flour, but I just dont think it would taste as magical. Ryan told me I should make one every week!
Riley and I had also made strawberry ice cream the same day and when paired together it was like eating chocolate covered strawberries! mmmmmmmmmm, i am drooling just thinking about it. I dont have any pictures of the ice cream but i will share the recipe with you, as for the skillet cookie, you can head over to molly's blog and check it out. Definantly something to put on your 'to-do list' enjoy!
