How you doin’? After these 42 days in quarantine you deserve a little sweetness. If you’re feeling trapped these delicate cookies will help you escape to a new world (in your mind or at least your mouth!). These fragile goodies are ultra-thin chocolate bit cookies that are shatteringly crisp with a distinctive caramel flavor thanks to brown sugar, oats and bittersweet chocolate bits.
They are a major departure from mainstream chocolate chip cookies, as these ultra-thin chocolate bit cookies are large, very flat and super crispy. They shatter dramatically when you bite them, releasing bursts of caramel and bittersweet chocolate flavor. It’s almost a religious experience—one taste of these heaven-sent treats and you’ll find yourself falling to your knees in reverence. Pray to the cookie! At least pray for more.
