Baking Withdrawal

A couple of weeks ago I got a serious case of baking withdrawal.
I couldn't take it anymore.
I needed to make cookies.
Store bought cookies just weren't cutting it.

So, I made some Martha Stewart chocolate chip cookies, but with a chopped up Dairy Milk bar instead of chocolate chips - om nom nom nom nom!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies - Martha Stewart

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed light-brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups (about 12 ounces) semisweet and/or milk chocolate chips

1. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda.
2. Beat butter with both sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy. 
3. Add the salt, vanilla, and eggs. Beat until well mixed.
4. Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. 
5. Stir in the chocolate chips.
6. Drop heaping tablespoon-size balls of dough about 2 inches apart on baking sheets.
7. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. Cookies should be golden around the edges, but still soft in the center,
8. Om nom nom nom nom.

Then, a couple of days later, since I already had all the ingredients, I made smiley chocolate chip pancakes!
