So this friend of mine (Sybil) had that happen to her. She was all set to make some chocolate chip cookies and when it came time to stir in the chocolate chips, she discovered she was without. First of all, who doesn't have their mis en place before starting a recipe? How ridiculous! Fortunately, our little baker/blogger is quite fond of Dove Dark Chocolate Promises and she always keeps a stash in the left rear corner of her pantry, right beside the Craisins and Planters mixed nuts. (at least that's what she tells me.)
Not one to be caught with her pants down, our ingenious baker/blogger decides to use her coveted Dove chocolates in her cookie dough. She goes on to inform me that other people put Snickers bars and Reese's cups in their cookie dough so who am I to tell her that she can't use Dove chocolates? At this point, I just kept my mouth shut and asked her if I could borrow some of those cookies to send with hubby for the co-irkers. Always kind and giving, Sybil agreed to share. I thanked her multiple times... that's just my personality.
