Tasty Tuesday: Chocolate

One of woman's best friends: chocolate. Next to shoes and shiny things, chocolate is definitely one of those things that most women like to have around the house when the random sweet tooth takes hold.

Whether it be dark, milk, or white, in bar, cake, or ice cream form, I can tell you personally that chocolate has a nice little spot in my heart, and a reserved spot in my stomach.

NOW, nothing says childhood more than a homemade chocolate chip cookie straight out of the oven. Ooey, gooey, and amazingly tasty, it brings me right back to that innocent time when the most drama was around my sister stealing my crayons or my Barbie.

The best part of these cookies?? They have 3 types of chocolate: dark, milk, and white chocolate chips. Can we say YUMMY?!
