Don’t get me wrong, I love regular old chocolate chip cookies as much as the next guy, but sometimes you need a little more color in your sweets. Or is that just me? And seriously how perfect are these for spring? They would also make a lovely little gift for Mother’s Day! Especially if you packed them up in this cute gold and glass cookie jar from Target.
The cookie recipe I used is my go to chocolate chip cookie recipe that yields the most soft and chewy cookies and I simply just swapped traditional chocolate chips for chopped up colorful candy melts. Easy peasy.
Pastel Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp. light corn syrup
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 cups of chopped colorful candy melts
Mix up your dough and colorful chocolate candy melts, scoop on your baking sheet and bake for appx. 10 minutes at 350°F. You will want to remove the cookies when they look a little under-cooked and are just starting to turn golden brown. This will make sure you get the most chewy and soft cookie. Then simply let cool slightly and serve.
I love it when my food is not only delicious but pretty too. Don’t you?
