Chock-full of Chips..

It's been weeks since my last post. I really missed my blog. The past weeks has been fun. We went to Laguna (the entire clan) in celebration of my grandfather's birthday and my incredible Aunt's visit here from Japan. We rented this huge house for a couple of days and we had a crazy yet extremely great time. We played a lot of games just like the good old days, not having to worry about anything but have fun. It's good to be silly every once in a while. You feel younger. :D

After playfulness comes sickness. I've been sick for 3 days now. Still not getting any better. I felt the sudden urge to bake this morning. I really miss my oven. I'm missing a lot of things lately. I immediately grabbed my book 'The Ultimate Cookie Cookbook' by Better Homes and Gardens and browsed for another cookie recipe for my daughter Kursten. As much as I want to exert more effort in baking today, I still feel awful so I went for the simple Chock-full of Chips.

The moment I saw 3 types of chocolate in the recipe, I instantly knew it was it and Kursten will surely love it. Semisweet chocolate chips, candy-coated milk chocolate pieces and white chocolate chips? What more could you possibly ask for. It's like dying and going to heaven.

What I really love about this cookie is that it has a healthy twist in its own little way, considering wheat flakes and oats are best known for its fiber content. Burst of chocolatey goodness that will mindblowingly satisfy even the sweetest tooth. You get the amazing combination of crisp wheat flakes that complements the soft and chewy consistency of the cookie itself and gooey melted chocolate at first bite.

She just can't get enough..

I'm glad to be in the great position of sharing the recipe. Have fun baking! :D
