Brad and my 9th wedding anniversary is coming up and it reminded me of the cookies I made shortly after our wedding. We had a small wedding with just close friends and family since that was all we could afford so we planned just a dessert bar with hot cocoa. We had some leftover hot cocoa toppings which were cinnamon chips, butterscotch chips and white chocolate chips. I didn’t know what to do with the leftovers and thought “hey, let’s just dump it in a chocolate chip cookie recipe” and see how that comes out… what is there to lose right? Well, they weren’t half bad! I took a basic highly rated chocolate chip cookie recipe off of AllRecipes.com and added my own chip ratio. These cookies are one of my husband’s faves til this day and I hope our kids will enjoy it someday =)
