National Bittersweet Chocolate Day

Why not celebrate chocolate!?

Thought semi-sweet is my favorite type of chocolate, I wanted to take this opportunity to share a couple of my favorites. I thought I would first share my favorite type of chips:

It's kind of silly, but I can embrace it! A day dedicated to chocolate is a good day, in my book. I also thought I would share my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, in honor of today. I may have to bake these cookies tonight and I recommend you do as well. 

Kitchenaid Chocolate Chip Cookies



  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Soften butter in the microwave. I microwave each stick of butter 15 seconds then rotate 180 degrees and microwave for another 15 seconds. Your oven will be different.
  • Place sugars, butter, eggs, and vanilla in mixer bowl. Attach bowl and flat beater to mixer.
  • Turn to Speed 2 and mix for 30 seconds. Stop and scrape bowl. Turn to Speed 4 and beat another 30 seconds. Stop and scrape bowl.
  • Sift together baking soda, salt, and flour.
  • Turn to Stir Speed. Gradually add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture over about 2 minutes.
  • Turn to Speed 2 and mix 30 seconds.
  • Turn to Stir Speed and add chocolate chips, mixing for 15 seconds.

  • Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, longer if you prefer crunchy cookies.
  • Let the cookies rest for 1 minute after removing from oven, then remove them and cool on wire racks. Allow the baking sheets to cool about 2 minutes before using them for the next batch.
This recipe can be found at Food.com so I cannot take credit! Of course, it originated from the Kitchenaid cookbook. Who would have thought to look through that cookbook and find your favorite cookie recipe? Trust me, this one is a keeper. What's your favorite way to enjoy chocolate, of any kind?
