Pseudo Newsflash: Chocolate Removed from Marketplace - Panic Worldwide
I Have Many
How Many Recipes Are There in My Recipe Box?
There's the chocolate chip brownies that are super easy to make. You just take a White Cake Mix, half a cup of vegetable oil, two eggs, some vanilla and chocolate chips together. Put them in a 9 x 13 metal cake pan and cook for 22 minutes at 350 degrees.
For variations, you could use a Chocolate Cake Mix. You can change the size of your chocolate chips. There are mini chips, regular chips, large chips, gourmet chips. There's dark chocolate, semi-sweet, milk, and white chocolate.
You see. You can make them a lot of different ways.
There's The Old Favorite - Cookies From Scratch
Toll House has a recipe on the back of their chocolate chips. This recipe has been an old standard for a lot of years. It requires that you use two bowls. One for your wet ingredients that get mixed together to make the cookie base. The second bowl contains the flour that is used to bind the wet ingredients together. Then, once your wet ingredients are thoroughly mixed together so they are smooth, the flour mixture is mixed in and then your chocolate chips are folded in. The mixture is scooped up with a spoon and placed in rows on a baking sheet. The dough is then baked in the oven until the cookies are a golden brown.
Depending on how soft and chewy you like your cookies depends on your cooking time. I like to add a cup of Karo Corn Syrup to my wet mixture because the cookies get a caramel texture and stay chewy.
The longer you bake them, the crisper they become. They will continue to get crispy the longer they stay on the baking sheet after they come out of the oven, so you will have to remove them to a cooling rack as they set.
I have made the recipe using butter, shortening and maybe even rendered pork lard. My favorite cookies are those made with butter. Butter adds a certain taste that just cannot be imitated.
How About You
Do you bake chocolate recipes at your home?
Use a bowl and put 2 cups of powdered sugar into it. Add 1/2 cup of softened butter and a 1/2 cup of Hershey's Syrup. Add 1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla. Stir until smooth. You can add more Hershey's syrup if you wish it darker. It will thicken as it stands. I used a fork to mix, but you can use a power beater if you choose.
