Remembers Barbara H. of Appleton, Wisconsin, “My mother gave chocolate chip cookies a new twist for the holidays by substituting chopped red and green spiced gumdrops for some or all of the chocolate chips.”
"Who doesn't like chocolate chip cookies?" inquires field editor Diane Hixon, who credits cocoa in the batter for the double dose of chocolate in her treats. These disappear fast from the cookie jar in her Niceville, Florida home!
While dabbing in the kitchen one day, my husband, Dale, came up with these hearty cookies. I begged him to make them again, but he hadn't written down the recipe. Ten batches later, he finally recaptured the wonderful flavor.
