I've mentioned before that I love making new memories and traditions with my boys but I also love incorporating things I did as a child. When it's cold outside, we bake. When I miss my family, we bake. When I need something chocolatey, we bake. And now that my oldest is 7 years old, I'm passing down the tradition, which might seem a bit silly, of baking a great chocolate chip cookie and this one has a great spin to it.
Enter Nestle Toll House DelightFulls. Yummy chocolate morsels with different fillings inside. Drool!
I pretty much let my oldest son measure, poor, mix and bake it all by himself. I was there just for moral support and clean up crew. He had a smile on his face the whole time!
Ingredients for Chocolate Chip cookies:
-1 bag of Nestle Toll House Peanut Butter Filled DelightFulls
-3/4 cup sugar
-3/4 cup brown sugar
-1 tsp. vanilla
-1 stick of butter (melted)
-2 1/4 cups of flour
-1 tsp. baking soda
-pinch of salt
-Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a mixing bowl, mix together eggs, sugars, vanilla and cooled down melted butter. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda and salt. Turn on your mixer and slowly add the dry mix to the wet mix. Once its all mixed together, stir in the chocolate chips by hand. Place rounded balls of cookie dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 9 minutes and allow to cool.
I think there is something so gratifying as a young child to go through a complete process from start to finish and be able to enjoy what you made, with your family. It was such an ego boost for Hudson when we finally got to try them and they were so good! This is a great recipe to get your kids excited about baking.
When I told him we would be kicking up the recipe by using the cookies we just made in an ice cream parfait, I think I blew his mind. In a good way. I mean, we layered chocolate chip cookies with peanut butter filled morsels, vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, sprinkles and cherry! What more could a kid want?
If you like to bake with your kids and want to try a new twist on an old classic like chocolate chip cookies, I definitely recommend trying Nestle Toll House DelightFulls. They are slightly bigger than your typical morsel and there are 4 flavors to choose from. To be honest, I loved just eating them straight out of the bag!
