Tasty Thursday #13
Dessert dessert dessert! Chocolate chip 🍪! Found the recipe on Splenda.com. Nom nom nom get in my belllllyyyyy. Have you ever had your mind set on making something, know without a shadow of a doubt you have everything you need, only to realize you’re missing two key ingredients.
This is when you kindly ask your driving teens to go to the store to get what you’re missing completely ignoring the fact that it’s almost 9PM on a school night…and when they respectfully decline, you hit em with a guilt trip, reminding them how you brought them into the world and that Christmas is less than 2 weeks away…(Singing Michael Jackson’s “they don’t really care about us” me )
So what do you do? You do the next best thing, substitute using what you do have and pray for the best. What was I missing? Salt and brown sugar. Let me correct that, I had no table salt, I did have sea salt though. Close enough. I had no brown sugar, but I had white sugar. Hell, they both sweet. Used them and made up the dough ⇣⇣⇣
It was soooo pretty guys, but I’ve been fooled before and because I didn’t have the exact ingredients, I kept my expectations low. I spooned it up, placed it on parchment paper, and in the oven they went ⇣⇣⇣
I baked them for 13 minutes at 375 because I like crispy edges. They were beautiful ⇣⇣⇣
The real question though…did they taste good? Yessssssss they were absolutely delicious! I was so happy I may have shed one single tear.
Late night before bed sweet treat! Pictures of the recipe below!
Note: I substituted the 1/4 tsp of salt with 1/8 tsp sea salt and instead of the 1 cup of Splenda brown sugar blend and I used 1/2 cup of the Splenda Naturals. Enjoy!
Until next time…💛
