Last month I inadvertently entered a Competition and the cosmos must have been smiling on me beacause I won an awesome prize from @faircapedairies 🐮. My hamper of delicious Faircape goodies included this thick and creamy full cream choc chip yoghurt which I could not resist pairing with a crunchy choc chip cookie I had made recently. I was definitely not counting calories at this point. Thank you Fair Cape Dairies for the spoil.

🍪 The ever popular Choc Chip Cookie can be re-invented in many ways. My mother has been making this choc chip cookie for us ever since I can remember. We grew up with the kitchen always smelling of something baking in the oven and that something was very often these crisp delicious nuggets of nostalgia filled to the brim with shards of chopped up chocolate. Cos back then you made your own chocolate chips. We would swipe them up still warm from the tray, the chocolate still slightly gooey and the biscuit still just a little squidgy in the middle. Biting into these warm discs was just thee most satisfying feeling. And later once cooled and crisp, they were dunked in a glass of cold milk to be savoured a second time 🍪
Here is the only recipe you'll ever need because you can change it up any way you want. Try it this weekend to fill the treat section of the kids school lunchboxes. Their beaming smiles will be all the thanks you'll need. 
Recipe will be in the comments. Or click the link in the bio for the full blog post and more pictures. http://ow.ly/IEG830hR0Aq

This is one of the best popcorn flavored ice cream I’ve had yet. And the waffle was just as good. Light, fluffy and crisp on the outside exactly as it should be. This from an outfit called @3_degrees_ice_cream_emporium in Claremont. Spot that choc hazelnut gourmet shake in the background. More on this spot will be on the blog soon.
