Yesterday was National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day
Why was I not told of this most important day? (j/k. Every day is national chocolate chip cookie day at my house.)
In case you missed it too, I’ve got recipe’s for you to try out.
Check out this article by Tess Rose Lampert for Cheapism© featuring some of the best recipe’s ever (except for the bacon chocochip cookie. Not my thing.)
Chip Off the Old
Chocolate chip cookies are a nearly universal joy, celebrated each year on National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day (Aug. 4). They’re also easy and cheap to make. Whether you’re baking a batch of a classic family recipe or the original Nestlé Toll House recipe, absolutely no one will complain about the tasty and heartwarming result. Still, it might be time to try one of these fun, bakery-worthy versions to mix it up.

S’mores Chocolate Chip Cookies
These indulgent cookies are an ooey, gooey twist on two family favorites. Incorporating toasted marshmallow s’mores into soft cookies is surprisingly simple and especially fitting for summer, the season for cooking s’mores over a campfire. When there’s no camping trip on the calendar, a batch of s’mores cookies can be ready in less than three hours.

M&M’s Chocolate Chip Cookies
Sprucing up regular chocolate chip cookies with colorful M&M’s is an easy way to bring a classic to the next level. It’s a common upgrade at the holidays, thanks to the festive look from seasonal bags of red and green candies, but it can add extra fun anytime. There’s no special technique: Simply supplement the chocolate chips with M&M’s.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies
Chocoholics unsatisfied with just a few morsels will gobble up this cookie, which takes a good thing and makes it better — by adding more chocolate. This recipe has a 4.5 rating (out of 5) from thousands of reviews, with 80% of users giving it top marks.

Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies
Adding visual appeal to a dish can greatly enhance its enjoyment, which is part of the idea behind these cookies infused with three kinds of chocolate chips: white, milk, and dark. The different chips also create richly layered flavor.

Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies (?)
Using bacon in sweets is a trend that has thankfully stuck around. The interplay of the umami-rich and salty bacon offsets the sweet chocolate, making all the flavors pop. These piggy cookies are sure to be a welcome cap to barbecues and other savory meals.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake
Cookie cakes — really just giant, communal cookies — are fun for celebrations and make a big impression using the same inexpensive ingredients and without being much more complicated than a batch of traditional cookies. A specialized pan is required to pull off a cookie shape, though.

Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies
Chocolate and coconut have had a long love affair. Adding coconut flakes to the classic goodie is an easy way to lend richness and decadence. One reviewer reminds bakers to store the cookies in tins to retain crispness, rather than let them soften by putting them in Tupperware.

Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies
Caramel lovers will rejoice at the way soft, creamy, buttery caramel enhances a tender chocolate chip cookie. The main trick is inserting a caramel candy inside each cookie-dough ball before baking, but there are a few other details that make this recipe diverge from conventional chocolate chip cookie making.
