Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, are you ready? I am not usually that into the holiday. I am horrible with crafts, so I don’t get into all the cute and fun ideas (although sometimes I wish I did). What I am into though? Any excuse to eat chocolate. Let’s face it, Valentine’s Day is pretty much all about chocolate. So that is what I am sharing with you today. #SundaySupper is going Valentine’s on you today, and I am bringing chocolate.
I adapted my tried and true Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe to use brown butter. Then I topped it with some festive red M&M’s. Topping cookies with M&M’s is pretty much a regular occurrence at my house. Like I said before, I like chocolate :) You can buy Valentine’s M&M’s at the store right now, or make them with whatever color you want. But trust me, you should make them!
I always have cookie dough in my freezer. I make a batch of it, then only bake what I need right away. I scoop balls of dough onto a baking sheet, then put it in the freezer for an hour. Once they are frozen, I put them in a zip lock bag. Then anytime a cookie craving hits, I can just bake up what I need. This is a great tip if you are anything like me, and can’t stay out of the cookie jar!
