Every Girl Link-Up || Chocolate Recipes

Cornflake Chocolate Chip Cookies
 
As many of you know, the “Fudge” in “Floral and Fudge” represents my love of chocolate and the recipe-portion of my blog (which is heavily focused on chocolate desserts). I suggested to Astleigh of Hill Collection that we include a Chocolate topic in one of our Every Girl Link-Ups, and she cleverly scheduled it for Valentine’s Week! So enjoy this “Cornflake Chocolate Chip Cookie” recipe—and if you have a recipe to share, feel free to link up at the bottom of this post!

Cornflake Chocolate Chip Cookies
 
Last month, when I posted the Brown Butter & Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies, I mentioned that I really want to try new variations of the Toll House original recipe. My Aunt Yvonne hinted that I would like crushed up cornflakes in my cookies to add a new texture. Naturally, I had to try the cornflake suggestion :)  Turns out, they really do add a chewiness that is divine. Before I made the cookies, I was picturing a larger, flatter, browner cookie with a bit of crunch. At first, the cookies that came out looked pretty typical. But then for the last two dozen, I flattened the cookie on the tray, and I ended up with exactly the type I was looking for.
 
 
Ingredients:
 
1 cup salted butter (2 sticks)
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 beaten eggs
2  1/2 cups flour
2 cups crushed corn flakes (not too finely crushed)
2 cups (12 ounces) chocolate chips
 
Directions:
 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
 
Melt the butter. (I made sure it cooled a bit before the next step.) Mix the butter with the white and brown sugars.

Form dough into walnut-sized balls (flatten them if you wish), and bake on a greased sheet for 10-12 minutes.

Remove to a wire rack to cool. If cookies spread too much, chill the dough or knead in 1/3 cup more flour.
