When I get stressed out, I bake. It just happens. It serves as a rather delicious coping mechanism, if I do say so myself. As it so happens, the past few days I’ve been extremely stressed, and had a completely inexplicable craving for chocolate. I knew there were about fifteen boxes of brownie mixes in the pantry, but we had those earlier this week, and I wanted something different.

It seemed as though the baking gods were trying to send me a sign. When I opened up the pantry, the following things were right up front, saying “Use me!”:
- Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate Chips
- Cocoa Powder
- Brown Sugar
As any baker knows, these are the main ingredients for extra chocolatey chocolate chip cookies. I gathered up the rest of the ingredients, and quickly whipped up deliciousness in the form of these:
They’re fantastic, and gloriously simple to make.
