Sassy and Salty Chocolate Chip Cookies

IMG_4341We were the cookies that live in the bag and we have a story to tell.

We were made on a whim one day and some of our comrades were taken to the Track for a day out and about. They were good cookies and we will miss them.

Some were sent to their death as munchies for the return trip to one of Cute~Ella’s friends road trip

There were many of us, but now we are but a few.

The other day we heard Cute~Ella talking about how she was going to take us to work to share, but we just sat on her desk all day.

Wanting to get out of our misery of life in the bag, we stared at her all day long. Our salty peanuts and dark chocolate begging her to be eaten.

She held out though, wavering around 3pm when the snack time kicked in and we really thought we had her!

But alas we did not.

IMG_4344Apparently she had plans for us later that evening and she rose to our challenge…Armed with a glass of milk and a bad attitude, she savagely ate us one by one.

Some of us were munched on. Some of us were drowned in the icy cold milk.

Some were shared with that guy she lives with and while that sped things along, well?

We never stood a chance.

She faced that challenge head on and won.

I alone am left. Although nibbled at and a little worse for wear, I am the one left to tell our tale.


modified from Hershey’s recipe


2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) HERSHEY’S SPECIAL DARK Chocolate Chips
1 cup cocktail peanuts


  1. Heat oven to 375°F.
  2. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add eggs; beat well. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts, if desired. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. I use my mini ice cream scoop.
  3. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 5 dozen cookies.


Please note that I received no compensation from Hershey’s for writing this post. The Special Dark Chips are just the ones I like to use when I have them on hand. They were paid for by my own money. Or Franks.

    That little cookie can’t be all alone. That’s wrong. I think you should make him some new friends. And let some of them come and live with me.
