Way Chocolate Chip Cookies

How much chocolate can you get into one chocolate chip cookie? Probably more than this, but it was still a lot. :)

Stacey's Way Chocolate Chip Cookie Ingredients:

1c + 2 tbs sugar, organic
1 1/4c brown sugar, organic
2 sticks (1c) butter, halfway melted
2 oz coconut oil, organic
1 tbs vanilla bean paste
2 eggs, organic
2c white flour, unbleached, organic
1.5c whole wheat flour, organic
1/4c cornstarch
1/3c unsweetened Scharffen Berger cocoa powder
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1c semisweet chocolate chips, Guittard
1c milk chocolate chips, Guittard
1c white chocolate chips, Trader Joe's

First, I preheated the oven to 350F. Then I microwaved the butter and coconut oil until the butter was partially melted.  I added the butter and oil to the sugars and then added the vanilla bean paste in my standing mixer.

I turned the mixer on at medium speed until it was combined.  Then I added the eggs and beat it until it was fluffy.

I put all the dry ingredients in the bowl and then put all the chocolate chips on top. I mixed on the "stir" setting in pulses (if you let it go, flour will fly everywhere).  Once just combined, I made 1 3/4" balls of dough and put them on my favorite cookie sheets (these aren't exactly the ones I have, but they're close and still by Wilton) 1.5-2" apart.

I put them into the oven, usually one sheet at a time, on the rack that's just one notch higher than the middle.  I put them in for 10 minutes, rotating 180 degrees at the halfway point, and then removed them from the oven.  Using my temperature gun, I checked the surface of the cookies to make sure they were around 200F.  Then I let them cool on the cookie sheets for another 10 minutes before removing them with a spatula.  The cookie sheets, surface temperature, and letting the cookies cool on the sheets are the keys to cookies that are soft in the middle.
Yummy, yummy, yummy...

Throwing some shade

Ombre Flowers So I wanted to try that new ombre cake frosting trend.  I used whip cream here on an eggless chocolate cake I made for a potluck at work (for those egg-free individuals on my team).  Everyone was sufficiently impressed.  I was a little disappointed at the messiness of the blue/purple end, and I kinda ran out of cream, but it tasted good. Anyway... Eggless Chocolate Cake 2 c sugar 1 3/4 c flour 3/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder 1.5 tsp baking powder 1.5 tsp baking soda 1/2 c sunflower oil, organic 1 c whole milk, organic 1 c boiling water 1 tsp salt 3 tbs flax seeds Roses 2 c heavy cream 1/4c sour cream 1 tsp vanilla ½ c powdered sugar food coloring (if desired) Pre-heat oven to 350F. Soak flax seeds in milk for an hour or overnight (or use flax meal). Blend (I used a stick blender).  Mix dry ingredients. Mix in wet ingredients, with boiling water being last. Pour into cake pan (9x13).  Bake for 30 min, rotating once.    Let cake

Vanilla Marshmallows

Marshmallows have a special place in my heart because my boyfriend and I made these together on our third date.  He's a chemist and I remember commenting on how precise he was with measuring everything.  Nothing sexier than a guy who can cook... and who wants to help make candy. :) Unfortunately, he's on a business trip this week, so I made a half batch by myself from my favorite book, Chocolates & Confections .   And in doing a search I see they have an At Home version !!! Wow.  If only they had this when I started trying to make candy in 2008.  Oh well, the harder path only makes you stronger... right? Anywho... Stacey's Half Batch Vanilla Marshmallow Ingredients : 0.8 oz gelatin (powdered) 4 oz water (for hydration) 12 oz sugar, organic 6 oz glucose syrup 2 oz local honey 2 oz invert sugar 3 oz water 2 tsp vanilla bean paste Parchment paper 9"x9" cake pan Canola oil, organic 1:1 ratio powdered sugar to cornstarch I've found tha

White Chocolate Love Bars

More hearts for my Valentine's Day assortment... Stacey's White Chocolate Love Bars Ingredients : 16 oz Chocolates El Rey White Chocolate Discos 64% Guittard Dark Chocolate couverture 1 oz bar mold I'm using a 16 cavity bar mold that has one ounce bars.  I think I got mine from Tomric.com ( candy bar mold ). First I tempered some dark chocolate for the decorations. I use the seeding method and a microwave to temper my chocolate.  I put my couverture in a pyrex bowl and microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring with my favorite rubber spatula (the 1 piece ones are the best), until it's about 100F, using my trusty  temperature gun .  Then I add my seeding chocolate and stir until it reaches 90F, removing the seed chocolate afterward. The other thing about tempering chocolate is that you can't really make only one or two ounces - you need to do at least 4-5 ounces or it won't come out right.  So, I made these while I was making something else.  But, yo
