Lazy Chocolate Chunk Cookie


This could be the closest thing to a chocolate chip cookie.

It is its large adorable cousin.

I can’t get enough of it. I always want more. Even when I’m done. I still want more.

I was craving this thing for months but had no will to get up and make it, yet I’ve been so vocal with my cravings lately. I had to express somewhere and bear the consequences. (Read the replies)

It only came to reality when I decided to invite Kevin over, enjoy lunch and produce mouthwatering shots. Lunch wouldn’t have been complete without dessert despite how full we were.

After maybe a month or 2 of craving, I had to get up and bake this delicious lazy cookie.
Yes I’m naming it The Lazy Chocolate Chunk Cookie. And that’s official.

I topped my slice with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzles of freshly prepared, still warm caramel. You cannot imagine our faces and the sounds we were making. You don’t have to. Here’s a photo of Kevin’s face. LOL

This cakey cookie has easily replaced chocolate chip cookies for me. Not completely, but mostly when I’m too lazy to cream the butter, shape into balls or wait a lot before sinking my teeth into sweet sin. It also wins over when I realize I get to shamelessly have ice cream AND MORE CARAMEL!

Maybe I can get the best of both worlds if I flatten the dough more and bake it in a cookie sheet instead!

Hmmmm Go ahead and try this and I’ll let you know when I try the thinner one next time.
