Remember how I told you about
how my husband proposed making marshmallows from scratch? Yeah, that was a fun.
Well the recipe made a lot of marshmallows.
And while we drank our hot chocolate we dunked marshmallow after marshmallow into our steaming cups.
It was a glorious thing.
And then we woke-up the next morning and somehow there were still a lot of marshmallows left. And I realized they probably don’t stay good as long as the ones that come in perfect little sizes in perfect little bags.
And I wanted the sweet taste of hot chocolate again. But I’m a food blogger and cannot repeat a recipe.
And I realized I am starting too many sentences with the And. When I shouldn’t ever start a sentence with that word. Sorry about that.
Sooo I couldn’t let my precious new creation go to waste. I turned to my new favorite information source.
Within seconds I had a recipe for Hot Chocolate Cookies and was baking away.
Within minutes we were biting into warm chocolate cookies with gooey marshmallows.
I can review cookbooks for a hobby. Find recipes online in seconds. And eat warm cookies with my husband. Life is good.
