Quadruple Chocolate Soft Fudgy Pudding Cookies

I have been craving chocolate for a week, but we had a sudden surge in temperatures that killed any desire I had to bake.   Finally, the temps today were nice and I assembled my ingredients to make these amazing looking cookies.   FOUR kinds of chocolate?  Oh yeah, I'm in.    I doubled the recipe, cookies disappear fast around here and 17 didn't seem like a lot.     I ended up using Hershey's Special Dark chips for the dark chocolate and I didn't chop them.    I used a cookie scoop to keep them all uniform, and I flattened them with the glass after I pulled them from the oven.

So deliciously, chocolatey good.  Both myself and my husband both think they'd be fantastic as an ice cream sandwich with some vanilla bean ice cream.    Thank you so much to Averie for satisfying my chocolate craving!

              Quadruple Chocolate Soft Fudgy Pudding Cookies

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
 3 sticks butter -- softened
 1 1/2           cup  light brown sugar -- packed
     1/2          cup  granulated sugar
4              large  eggs
  1T+1t    vanilla extract
  2           pkgs  instant chocolate pudding mix -- about 3.7 to 3.9 ounces
     1/2           cup  unsweetened natural cocoa powder (used Penzey's)
4              cups  all-purpose flour
  2           teaspoons  baking soda
large pinch salt -- optional (I used it, kosher)
  1 1/4 cups Hershey's Special Dark morsels (next time I'd use the whole bag)
12oz Nestle Semi Sweet Morsels

Cream together butter and sugars.   Add eggs, and vanilla and mix on medium speed about 4 mins.   Scrape down sides of the bowl to make sure that everything is well mixed.   Add pudding mix and cocoa and beat together on low speed for about 1 minute, just to combine.

Scrape down sides of the bowl again.   In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and large pinch salt.    Add to pudding mixture slowly on low speed.    Add chips, and beat on low about a minute to distribute them throughout the batter.

Scoop dough onto a parchment lined sheet with a large cookie scoop ( about 1/4c).   I got 34 cookies.   Cover and chill dough for about 2 hours.

Heat oven to 350ยบ.    Bake cookies 8 at a time on parchment lined sheets for about 10 mins.  Flatten slightly with a glass when you remove them from the oven.  Let cool on sheets 10 minutes, then move to wire rack to cool completely.    Do not overbake!

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

Lemon Pizzelles

  One of the first cookies I can remember eating is a pizzelle, and I'm still a huge fan today.  Even though you need a special iron to make them, the rest of it is really so simple. This time around I took the basic pizzelle recipe and instead of vanilla or anise, I used Adams lemon extract. I also used some of their yellow food coloring to distinguish them from my regular pizzelle.
