Hunka Chunka Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

We are doing a summer reading challenge at our house. My 6 year old LOVES reading and we decided to do a small reward system to encourage her reading. We have a chart with 75 blocks and she gets a reward every 25 blocks. She finished her first 25 in 2 1/2 days and her reward was picking a dessert for me to make.

She chose one of my cookbooks and flipped through for about 5 minutes before picking these cookies. It was a fanatastic choice. You can't really go wrong with chocolate chip cookies and these were soft, chewy, big, and LOADED with chocolate chips! YUM!

I love your cookies. What's not to love about chocolate chip cookies? That's great that you are having your daughter read during the summer. I am a retired first grade teacher and she will be ahead if she keeps reading. Thanks.

Those look amazing! I love to read too, as does my 6yo daughter. I'll have to set up a challenge for her this summer. I like your idea!
