This day is going incredibly well.
Thunderstorms early in the morning, breakfast outside at one of my favourite cute little places in Little Italy, and shopping.
I think I was entitled to purchase a few things for myself because I can’t even remember the last time I acquired a new piece of clothing. So when I got home I was feeling pretty good. Pretty darn good. Good enough to whip up some cookies! Just for fun. And by whip up I mean spend a total of 2 and a half hours making these beauties. Okay fine, to be honest those two hours were chilling time for the dough. Originally I was just going to leave them as is, cute and chocolate and heart-shaped.
But then, I took it to the next level….
I sprinkled on some sugar, busted out my blow torch and caramelized those granules `til a beautiful bronze for that extra crunch. Chocolate? Good. Caramel? Good. Chocolate+Caramel in a cookie? Uh-may-zing. I am debating making a caramel and turning these into sandwich cookies. WHERE’S THE CREAM?
seriously where is the cream…I swear I bought some.
Yeah. That’s what I’m talkin’ bout. Oh, what? you can’t see the caramel? Well then..
LOOK HARDER, IT’S THERE
BAM CARAMEL CLOSE-UP!
See it now? Yeah you do. Yeaaaaaaaaah you do.
