We’ve had it with chocolate chip cookies. Particularly the chip portion of said baked good. Who decided we should settle for a measly crumb of chocolate? It’s time to ditch the chips for something more stimulating. And we can’t think of anything more rousing than a chocolate bar to kick your cookies up a notch. Or two, if you’re feeling particularly audacious.
