Valentine Chocolate Chip Cookies
One thing I can’t resist are Chocolate Chip Cookies. There is something about biting into a warm chocolate chip cookie and washing it down with an ice cold glass of milk. I can smell chocolate chip cookies baking from a mile away and I will come running! Nestle Toll House chocolate chip cookies are simple, and perfect. Valentine Chocolate Chip Cookies are the perfect cookie for Valentine’s Day.
Valentine Chocolate Chip Cookies are made with Nestle Limited Edition Valentine morsels. These morsels are made up of dark chocolate and red colored morsels and like all Nestle chocolate morsels or chips are super delicious. Over the years I look forward to the “new limited edition” varieties that Nestle comes out with each year/season. Winter morsels which are chocolate and mint and Spring morsels which are yellow and pink colored morsels.
An American Classic
Chocolate Chip Cookies are the quintessential of all cookies. The “Queen” of cookies. Chocolate Chip Cookies have and always will be everyone’s favorite cookie. An American Classic cookie that is just as popular today as they were 100 years ago. Take a survey of grade school children, ask them if they have ever heard of a ‘certain person’ from any history book or a ‘chocolate chip cookie’, they’d say the latter.
