Chili Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

Yes. We're all familiar with the classic chocolate chip cookie: The velvety, toasted-to-a-light-sepia disc of goodness and nostalgia. As soon as your front teeth slide down the center of that cookie, just enough of that gooey, uncooked cookie dough remains to have you straddling the still-needs-two-more-minutes, and the No-It-Definitely-Does-NOT fine line of questioning. I have spent some time and research trying to find the right recipe that suits my individual CCC needs, with no outside pressure, and I hope you'd agree with the final results. CCC's with gooey centers, crusty outards, hand chopped, high quality chocolate, and a sprinkle of Sea Salt right at the end, when it's fresh out of the oven. Classics are classics for a reason, for sure, however, sometimes we can crave something a little more exciting than "traditional" sometimes. Just a little accent. I was inspired by my chocolate bar selection in the grocery aisle--a dedicated chocolate-fiend, I am. I've come to learn I love certain flavors in my chocolate bar. Orange, for instance. Can't get enough Orange Peel Dark Chocolove bars. But what about chili and chocolate?! It's also another winning combo, and I hadn't heard of it where just regular chocolate has been hanging out for years now (in CCC's!). So I wanted to try it myself, and boy, I have to say, this is my new favorite CCC!
