Chocolate Chai Cookies
Like most of us, I love a good Chocolate Chip cookie. There are so many different variations out there, it can be hard to choose which one you should make. I find that a lot of these recipes are too buttery with not enough flavor to back it up.
I really like the big flavors in this cookie. It’s a definitely a cookie for grown-ups. The Blackstrap Molasses and dark chocolate come through intensely. The boldness of the chocolate can be toned down by using a lower cocoa percentage chocolate.
