This weeks selection was chosen by Rachel of "Confessions of a Tangerine Tart" and the recipe can be found on page 85 of "Baking: From My Home To Yours" or at Rachel's blog.
I was really excited about this recipe because not only do I love Whoppers, I actually had them in the house! The dough was super easy to throw together and it was very fudgy. I found myself eating it straight out of the bowl, although that is true of most cookie dough so I can't honestly say it was because of the cookies! :)
Truth be told, I liked the dough better than the final product. Don't get me wrong, these cookies are incredibly delicious, especially for all you chocoholics! My problem came from the Whoppers. That's right... the candy that I enjoy so much turns hard when cooked and becomes almost toffee-like. I don't like toffee... not in the least! So, I still ate the cookies (let's not get crazy!), but next time I make them (and there will be a next time!), I will sub white chocolate chips or peanut butter chips for the Whoppers. Sure, that changes the cookie and I wouldn't be able to call it by the proper name, but at least I won't have crunchies in my cookies!
Thanks, Rachel, for a great choice! Don't forget to check out the TWD blogroll to find out how everyone else fared.
