I’ve been making chocolate chip cookies since I was a little kid (don’t even want to think about how much raw cookie dough I’ve consumed!)… And I’ve tried countless recipes along the way.
What I love about this one is that it allows me to be lazy, instead of forming perfect balls and hoping I get perfect looking cookies, you just throw the dough into tiny ramekins and call it a day.
The bonus is it actually looks like a special dessert when you top it with some ice cream, a treat worthy of a special occasion.
Father’s Day is this weekend and this is something the little ones could have fun making for dad or grandpa!
