Grocery stores can be one big trap. I should know better than to go grocery shopping on an empty stomach because that usually means a full cart. And then when you make it to the checkout line, you’re surrounded by candy, chocolate, magazines, and other things you don’t really need (sometimes I really do need chocolate though…). The other day, a bar of Chocolove’s almond-sea-salt-dark-chocolate-bar was staring me down while I waited to pay for my goods. So, I did what anyone would do: I bought it, chopped it up, and made cookies!
For the cookie part, I used Dreena Burton’s tried and true vegan Homestyle Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. If you haven’t tried it yet, do it. It’s the best cookie recipe in the world. Hands down.
- One bar of chocolate is enough to make a dozen cookies.
- I didn’t really taste any sea salt after trying a piece of the chocolate. So, to ensure that these cookies had that salty/sweet combo, I sprinkled them with some sea salt before baking.
The cool thing about Chocolove bars is that each one comes with a love poem on the wrapper (awwwww). I don’t think I’ve ever actually stopped to read the poem before because I was too busy devouring the chocolate. So, for your viewing pleasure and mine, here’s the poem that came with the chocolate bar:
