Sparkle #178: Chocolate Chip Cookie Overload

What is that one food item which you tend to indulge in when feeling happy, excited, nervous or low? For me, it will always be desserts – I just cannot say no to goodies from the bakery! And chocolate tops this list. I will happily cheat on my diet with a gooey chocolate chip cookie. Speaking of cookies, what is your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe?

We are wrapping up ‘welcome winter week‘ on the blog today, and what better way to do so than a food post? Food and winter go hand in hand, so this category was a natural pick for today’s post. What is that one recipe or food group which you associate very closely with the winter season? For me, nothing says winter better than a steaming cup of hot, creamy, decadent chocolate.
