If you could only have one dessert for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches for me, please! No questions; no hesitation. Chocolate chip cookies fresh from the oven are what make my life great. They pair perfectly with a cold glass of milk and are my favorite treat after any meal. I’ve never met a chocolate chip cookie that I haven’t liked whether they are warm and gooey or hard and crunchy.
Chocolate chip cookies were the first dessert that I learned to bake. My mom and I used the recipe straight from the NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi Sweet Morsels package. I’ve had a lot of chocolate chip cookies in my life, but nothing compares to the salty-sweet dough and perfectly chocolate-y morsels from NESTLÉ®.
