Chocolate Cookies I called these Chocolate Cookies Straight Up, because pretty much, that is what they are. Straight up Chocolate Cookies. No chips, cake mixes, candy, nothing, just chocolate cookies.

And, they are YUMMY.

But, don’t think you can’t add anything to them. This is a basic cookies recipe. You can add chips, candy and more if you want. But you don’t need to. Have I confused you?

 I do use my trusty cookie scoop, so that the cookies are all about the same size, and a Silpat baking mat so the edges are perfect.

Now, pretend I posted these last week… the picture below is an idea of what you COULD do, if you were to frost them. I included the recipe for the frosting. The kids helped with making them, and used the Edible Markers to write the time and any wording you might want!
