To Satisfy My Chocolate Craving

All last week I was having a major chocolate craving, and with no dairy free chocolate in the house it just wasn't getting satisfied. There was a massive snow storm predicted for Friday and Saturday, so Thursday night I stopped by the store to pick up some dairy free chips. I wasn't going to get snowed in my house with no chocolate around!!

I had to go to our local, small town grocery. Dairy free chocolate chips were scarce, but I did manage to find one brand, that happened to be an "off" brand, and not a big name brand. What's in a name anyway, right?

So, Friday evening I baked Dreena's Homestyle Chocolate Chip Cookies, from Vive Le Vegan. These cookies have the Toll House recipe beat, hands down. I've not had a more delicious chocolate chip cookie, ever! My only complaint......there weren't enough!! I ate mine dunked in some vanilla soy milk.....YUM. And, in our haste to eat them, I forgot to take pictures until we had only one lonely cookie left setting on the plate!

I also made some chocolate chip muffins for Saturday morning's breakfast. With the snow falling by the inch it seemed like muffins would be a good way to start the day before we headed out in the snow. I just used my regular recipe for blueberry muffins, only subbing in the chocolate chips instead. They turned out really well, only they need to cook about 2 minutes less than the blueberry one's, so they were a tad on the dry side.

Yay, chocolate chip cookies! I know, they don't make very many (which kind of works for me since I'm the only one in my house who can eat them) but I still want MORE! I think I might have to make a batch today, it's been too long. Like 5 whole days or something (!).
