VALENTINE COOKIES AT A COOKIE CARNIVAL



Cookie carnival....does that sound familiar.................


or does it ring a bell in ur ears......


or does it make u leap for joy.....





For me its all 3 coz i awhile ago i named a batch of cookies as ,CARNIVAL COOKIES ,as i dressed em up and yeah so do ring a bell or 2 and sound familiar too and leap for joy coz its a cookie and with some more dressing up experiments and yeah my first heart shaped bake of the season and plus got to use some of my new goodies.....



It all begun when THE CLEAN PLATE CLUB happenned one brite day this (or last)december and i was a wee bit late for their last months bake....





This month here was i at the threshold of baking with them and boy they chose a chipotle cookie,wherever was i going to find chipotle now.....




But yeah i couldn miss this cookie could i?.....no way ...so when ahead rite w/o it.....


and with the excitement of valentines building up(well mommy says i always have some silly reason or the other to be excited about but that said she's excited with me too....)i feel like cookies all over.....




Our shopping differs a bit,we shop all we want and then i look for recipes(though i have a few things vaguely planned or know what am going to work around but with thousands of recipes bookmarked ...really)ofr come up with something nice in our kitchen and it always works though for awhile now,it a wee bit different coz of me blogging(oh i so love it....dont ya?)



WHy am i saying this coz its the history behind my other tweak-the chocolate called for the original recipe-read along....


KATE,@Clean Plate Club chose a Nantucket Cookie Co. recipe via the Food Network.


My other tweak is that i used Arriba Milk Origine chocolate callets coz i have a little(or quite a bit)left in my bag and am nearing the best before date(i somehow prefer the coverture milk for hot chocolate so this one takes a back sit at times).


So i subbed all the dark chocolate for these milk callets and loved the welcome change and besides i am a milk chocolate lover though i do indulge in 70% coco chocolate for a few bakes......




ANd here begins my valentine's baking with a flying start....

ADAPTED VIA FOODNETWORK by RACHEL RAY






1)~~~125 GRMAS IE 1 STICK BUTTER-softennned


Cream well till light and fluffy(if u have a stand mixer place it by while u get by with getting around with the rest.)




2)~~~~ADD 1/2 CUP BROWN SUGAR


6 tbh WHITE SUGAR


2 TBH COCO POWDER to the lovely whisked butter and beat again till fluffy.(Now if u plan to use milk chocolate u'll have to cut down a bit on the sugar here but this amount worked perfect for us)



3)Add 1 EGG(3/4 OF LARGE)


1tsp VANILLA


1 TSP WATER


beat again till well combined.




4) ADD AROUN 6O GRAMS CHOCOLATE MELTED(i weighed out 75 grams coz a little gets eaten along and the bowl gets licked too:-))) )
blend evenly well.
Boy ,its already begining to taste elicious.....(jus forget about the raw egg for a bit here...)



5)SIEVE TOGETHER-3/4 CUP FLOUR


1/4 TBH BAKING SODA.(honestly i never use my TCM flour sifter ...so muc for tools)



mix till well incorparated.






6)Now TIME TO ADD 3/4 CUP BITTERSWEET(I ADDED MILK) CHOCOLTE CHUNKS/CALLETS/BUTTONS....mix well.



7)REFRIGERATE FOR AN HOUR(the dough should be fudge like not very hard)







8)NOW HERE'S WHERE THE FUN ALL BEGAN.....


While the oven sat warming up to a good 350*,i got out my brand new silicone and non stick tart moulds and,yeah sprinkled them all with sugar and yup...thats where i baked my cookies....


And one batch wen in to the chocolate mould too...and one got rolled into cute little buttons....


considering i quartered the recipe ,i got quite a number of cookies.






9)Baked em all together for almost an hour though the original calls for 12-14 mins coz i love 'em nice and crisp and crunchy ....and yeah my oven takes a wee bit longer to fire up anyway....






Oh these delightfull crunchy bites with acrunchy layer of sugar are really fantastic.....




A great recipe ....a keeper.....

A drizzle of semisweet chocolate,milk chocolate,nutella & butter ,all microwaved in a bowl and a few sprinkles later ....i was done....



oh yeah it was fun all along...






With a few of my new sprinkles and candy cupcake papers i was having a ball with ''FAITHFULL'' playing in the back ground....






Dont know what it was that set the mood on for a love is in the air....the cookies or ''faithfull''....


Maybe both.....






Done to indulge and give in to all those sugar and chocolate cravings......








I think i would love to call these a DELIGHFULL MILKY CHOCOLATEY SWEETY CHIPPY COOKIES FOR UR VALENTINE....

DO u wanna be a part of the fantastic COOKIE CARNIVAL TOO?
Well hop in right HERE for all the details...u'll love it......

    But then again, I would have to share my baked goods with other people. Which in reality I don't want to do. Haha.

    I love dark chocolate! These really look amazing.
