I saw these delightful creations on the Cooking Channel website and knew I had to try them. The official name is, “I want to Marry You Cookies” and they are from the genius mind of Melissa Stadler.
Her recipe includes pretty much every favorite ingredient of mine. Sugar, (da) brown sugar, oats, chocolate, white chocolate… I get happy just thinking about it.
And she is right, they are downright delicious! What makes them amazing is her method; she uses one saucepan! It’s quite inventive.
I think I was impatient and didn’t wait long enough during cooling times, so my cookies are a bit flatter than hers. In all the pictures I have seen these cookies are puffed up and thick, so I will stress that you should follow the directions better than I did!
I also opted for a good quality semi-sweet chocolate chunk. It really makes a difference in my opinion, as I love the deep rich cocoa flavor among the sweet (oh so sweet) sugary cookie dough. You could even go more pure with your chocolate selection, and find something over 60% cacoa.
Then there is that white chocolate. I love white chocolate with a passion in my soul, and what it brings to this cookie is nothing short of confection perfection.
Recipe just barely adapted from Cooking Channel.
Now, since I am already married, I will need to harness to power of these cooking into other notable pursuits. Maybe convince a husband that my new home office is a little bit higher up on his honey-do list than he previously thought.
Or rewarding some thoughtful and well deserving kids.
Or even just for me, as a treat for making it through another week.
