I’m not a big fan of spending time in the kitchen but my desire to eat, especially sweet treats, often talks me into baking. As if I need more encouragement, Friday, May 15 marks National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day! Can you think of a better reason to bake (and eat) a batch of chocolate chip cookies? Add to that my growing collection of Hersheys CHIPITS in my baking cupboard.

I love a traditional chocolate chip cookie, like this recipe from HersheysKitchen.ca:

CHIPITS Chewy Milk Chocolate Cookies Recipe


2/3 cup melted butter
2 cups lightly packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tbsp hot water
2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 2/3 cups CHIPITS Milk Chocolate Chips


  • Heat over to 375°F (190°C).
  • In large bowl, beat melted butter, brown sugar, eggs and hot water until smooth.
  • In medium bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Stir into butter mixture until blended.
  • Stir in milk chocolate chips. Drop from small tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake 8 to 10 minutes.  Let cool 1 minute; remove to wire rack.

Makes 5 dozen cookies (though I used a tablespoon as a guide since we were making sandwiches and it made about 3 dozen).

I found a standard 200g bag of CHIPITS worked perfectly in this recipe, give or take the few samples you nibble on during the baking processes. Making cookies makes me hungry so of course I need to snack. Don’t you?

Traditional Chocolate Chip Cookies

These chocolate chip cookies are a perfect treat on as is but seeing as the warmer weather is here (well, it will be soon enough) why not add a warm weather twist by making an ice cream sandwich. They are so easy to make, we do them often when BBQing, and they taste so much better than those store bought varieties. I decided to make some Nutella Ice Cream in our ice cream maker. Like most last minute baking decisions my supplies were low but I found an easy 2-ingredient recipe from The Cooking of Joy, which worked in a pinch.

Combining just Nutella (it basically used the end of our large jar) plus a can of evaporated milk mixed together. I did discover that even on the highest (coldest) ice cream setting that this mix didn’t set entirely. I had to let it sit overnight in the refrigerator.

Just scope a tablespoon on one cookie and squish down with a second chocolate chip cookie and tada…..Nutella Milk Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches. Of course you could use any kind of ice cream between these delicious homemade cookies. They such a great treat and a nice alternative to just a cookie or a bowl of ice cream.

10 Chocolate Chip Recipe Ideas

I love a good old fashion chocolate chip cookie but if you’re looking for something a little more creative why not try one of these chocolate chip cookie varieties:

Tropical Chocolate Chip Cookies, from Six Sister’s Stuff adds a little South Seas taste with the introduction of rum extract, coconut and nuts. Aloha!

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies, from Life, Love, and Sugar brings in a little fruit with the addition of banana. Know I know what to do with those ripe bananas besides make banana bread.

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies, from Joy the Baker has chocolate lover written all over them because sometimes just the chips in the cookie aren’t enough.

Maple Sweetened Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies, from Cookie and Kate. What don’t these cookies have in them? Yum!

Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies, from Le Crème de la Crumb combines two of my favourite tastes at the moment, salted caramel and chocolate chips.

S’more Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies, from Picky Palate. I would never have thought of baking a s’more inside a chocolate chip cookie but I’m glad someone did. Perhaps a new campfire favourite?

Soft ‘n Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars, from Comfort of Cooking illustrates that the joy of chocolate chip cookies doesn’t have to fall into a stereotypical cookie shape.

Brownie Chocolate Chip Thumbprint Cookies, from Chelsea’s Messy Apron. I always think of traditional thumbprint cookies for the holidays with jam in the middle but this variety squeezes in some chocolate brownies.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cut-Outs, from Sweet Sugarbelle forgets the dropped cookie balls and invites you to get creative with your cookie cutters.

Candied Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies, from For the Love of Food. We’re big fans of candied bacon (also known as Pig Candy) so what a treat to combine it into a chocolate chip cookie.

This is just a small handful of chocolate chip cookie ideas, eaten on their own or sandwiching some homemade (or store bought) ice cream. How do you like your chocolate chip cookies? Are you a traditionalist or do you like to get creative?

So this National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day we’ll be enjoying our Nutella Milk Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches and tomorrow we’re back to carrots.
