Is it really so surprising that my first post from quarantine is about baking?
If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw these chewy and delicious chocolate chip cookies all over my Instagram Stories about a week ago. This chocolate chip cookie recipe has been my go-to recipe for years. It literally makes the best chocolate chip cookies you’ll ever have.
Need proof? I made two dozen of these bad boys two weeks ago. And they were completely gone within a week. Yes, that can be credited to the fact that my roommate and I have nothing to do right now other than eat, organize, and rewatch True Blood… BUT given that my roommate said multiple times that these were the best cookies she’d ever had, I’m gonna credit the cookies’ taste and not our boredom for how quickly they vanished.
I’m telling you: they’re the best chocolate chip cookies you’ll ever make / have. And there are no rules when cookies are this good.
Why These Are The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies You’ll Ever Make:
As you’ll see below, there are a few *secret* ingredients in these cookies. And by a few, I mean two: almond extract and Milky Way bars. Both are slightly unorthodox additions to cookies, yes, but OMG they make these cookies so. friggin. good.
If you’re allergic to almonds, obviously skip the almond extract. While it adds a really unique flavor to these cookies, they can definitely exist without that ingredient. If you can’t find Milky Way bars, that probably means you’re outside of the United States. In that case, grab a Mars bar: British Mars bars are the most similar to American Milky Way bars.
And now for the recipe for what are quite literally the best chocolate chip cookies you’ll ever make. Or eat.
