Is there anything better than sprinkles?
The answer is yes. Chocolate and sprinkles is definitely better.
One of my all-time favorite cookie recipes is Joy the Baker's Vanilla Bean Confetti Cookies. They're light-hearted, chewy, and perfectly sweet. Kids are also pretty into them, so they get my full support as a mom.
But what if, I wondered? What if we added chocolate and kept the texture and chew of the original? So I tried it. And I failed.
Then I tried again, and I succeeded. How's that for an inspirational story?
Hopefully it's inspirational enough to make you want to try them. As if sprinkles and chocolate weren't enough.
And no children are required for the enjoyment of these cookies. Because let's be real-- with this many sprinkles in the mix, you'll feel like a kid again soon. A very happy, well-sugared kid. I highly recommend it.
