Chocolate Cookies and Cream Cookies

Can we talk?
I had a break up.
I’m not gonna lie, it was kinda serious.
It’s hard when you finally realize something you have been living for is not going to work out.  All the dreams you had are just…gone.
The relationship was dysfunctional.  Full of mocking and chiding.
The break up happened a while ago, but only now am I able to really talk about it.
I needed time.
But, I’m ready now.  My wounds have begun to heal.
So, here goes…
I officially dumped all my “5 pounds from now” clothes.
They are gone. Gone.
I know all you ladies know what I am talking about.  These are the clothes you hang on to because you remember looking and feeling great while wearing them.  Clothes you bought because you couldn’t fathom buying the dreaded size up.  Clothes you swore that you would get into after you did your “detox”.
And let’s all be honest…we know that they aren’t really “5 pounds from now clothes”..they are more like 10, 15…pounds from now clothes.
AND we all know that if we DO get down to the weight where those clothes fit we’re gonna go buy new stuff!  Because there’s nothing better than shopping for skinny clothes.
In hindsight I should have done it a long time ago.  I watch Oprah everyday..I know all the warning signs of an unhealthy relationship, but when you are knee deep in size 6’s you just don’t want to let go.
But I have and you can too.  Trust me, time heals the wounds.
So now that you have decided to live for the moment and I’ve talked you into a closet overhaul you will need sustenance, let’s get it on…
Cookies and Cream Cookies
Not for lightweights.

How to Make Cookies & Cream Cookies

I used these…Hershey’s Cookies and Creme Drops..

 

 They are great because they don’t have a candy shell, so there’s no crunch…

They add nice big chicks of candy in the cookies 🙂

Now that I have ended my broken relationship with skinny jeans from past I feel lighter, healthier and happier…
Happier, because now I have space to go shopping!  Shhh, don’t tell my husband!
Take my lead sisters…get rid of those dumb clothes.  Buy clothes for NOW, because you’re all gorgeous!

  • 1/4 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 12 oz. Hershey’s Cookies and Creme drops (if you can’t find these because they are a new item use coarsely chopped Cookies and Cream Kisses OR Hershey’s Cookies and Creme Bars)

  1. Preheat to 350
  2. Cream together butter and sugar until fluffy and light.
  3. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  4. On low, slowly beat in cocoa powder until well incorporated.

These pics and the thought of sinking my teeth into one of those cookies makes me go totally weak in the knees. How I wish I could eat cookies again!!! I stopped eating them entirely about a year ago, because each time I had cookies I would get pimples the next day. 🙁

“1 1/2 t. pure vanilla” — is the ‘t’ tablespoon or teaspoon?

Lower-case t indicates teaspoon, upper-case T indicates tablespoon. 🙂

Thank you for sharing this. (Both the recipe and your personal story). I know how hard it is to be so public about a rough relationship and to try to keep food and relationships separate. The cookies look delicious and I am looking forward to trying them.

These look amazing! Here is a recipe for some cookies i love -http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Chocolate-Sandwich-Cookies-II/Detail.aspx – these are cake mix cookies! They are delicious and l hope you enjoy them! But you should know that you can use any flavor of cake mix, and also, this recipe makes a double batch, so if you are only making 1 batch you will need to use only half of everything.

I have not seen those Hershey's bites. I will need to try them.

I am in the process of the breakup. I have taken all of the clothes out of the closet, but I haven't been able to bring myself to actually get rid of them. Almost there…
