Black & White Chocolate Chip Cookies

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I guess you could call this one of my more indecisive bakes. I knew I wanted to bake some cookies but I didn’t really know what kind. Chocolate? Peanut butter? Chocolate chip? Red velvet? Snickerdoodles? So I just decided to combine two of my favorite cookies – a chocolate white chocolate cookie & a chocolate chip cookie. I mean, why not right?! Take a bite of one side when you want something fudgy, rich & decadent and a bite of the other when you want that classic chocolate chip.

Personally, I preferred the chocolate white chocolate side – only because I absolutely love anything rich & intensely chocolate. I feel like if you’re going to give into those cravings, you should go big or go home! However, I think having both provided a really nice balance, especially for those that don’t like anything too intense.

I’m used to putting a bit of pudding mix into my cookie dough to keep it nice & soft, but these really didn’t need any! They were still perfectly fluffy & moist without it.
To create these cookies, I used a slightly modified recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction. Ingredient were purchased from Stater Bros. & Wholesome Choice.
