Someone's sweet tooth needs a check up...

It's that time of year - time to try out cookie recipes for our family cookie exchange!  Ok ok, it's called Sweet and Treats - but cookies are easier - at least in my opinion.  I tried these cookies out because they looked like they'd be easy.  The original recipe called for white chocolate chips - well, I didn't really have any, so semi-sweet chips it was and wow were they awesome.   Right out of the oven the chips are all melty and yummy.
We had these cookies on the counter for a few days - I'd offer Andy a few in his lunch - nope, he wasn't interested.  Said they were Ok, but not something he really wanted.  Um… really?  But they are little nuggets of chocolate amazingness.  Hrm… time to get his sweet tooth looked at.  Sometimes I can't figure him out - he can't get enough chocolate candy bars and other sweets… but sometimes my baked goods fall very flat.  Oh well.  You know who DID love them?  My office mates.  WOW… did they ever go nuts over these cookies.  Let's be honest, if I dumped a container of store bought cookies into a container and brought them I might get a similar reaction.  At least I know they are appreciated, and every single crumb went.  No waste there.
So the test of are these going to be at the cookie exchange?  Probably not… time to look for another recipe.
