It’s about halfway through lent and I have been craving something super chocolate-y, lucky me, last week Hershey’s Cinnamon Chips were on sale at Target. Interesting note on these chips, they are super cinnamon-y when you taste test them out of the bag, but once they’re mixed into something sweet, they’re great.
I searched around for a good-looking recipe to use them in, and I found the perfect one – Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip Cookies – but, as I often do, I switched it up adding some other spices and also made cookie cubes instead of cookies. This was mostly due to the fact that I wanted to bring them to work Saturday night and I didn’t have a whole lot of time, so it was easier to plop the dough in a 9X13 instead of portioning out cookies, but either way they were fabulous, literally amazing. And the raw dough, which only I got to enjoy, could replace chocolate chip cookie dough any day. I’ve found my lenten recipe! Next time I think I will just try chocolate chip cookies replacing the choco-s with the cinnamon-ies… or maybe once my chocolate-free lent is over, I can combine both!
