Things I Love Thursdays

I’m finally back in the swing of blogging and couldn’t wait to get back to Things I Love Thursday! This week I’m a lil baking/cooking kick and wanted to highlight my new favorite thing…

White chocolate chips!

I’ve always loved white chocolate more than any other chocolate, crazy I know. Last week I was in a baking mood. I was looking for a peanut butter cookie recipe, when I stumbled upon this recipe on How Sweet It Is. The recipe was for red velvet chocolate chip cookies. I love anything red velvet so I knew I had to make these. To put my own twist on it I used white chocolate chips instead of regular chocolate chips. For recipe details check out the link above, Jessica does a great job explaining everything (even my non talented self was able to do it, although I may have burned out my cheap mixer’s motor).

The end result ended up looking like this…

Other than my photography skills being a lil off, these cookies were AMAZING! Ask my bff Katie, I parted with 4 so she could try them. They were moist and perfect. I was pretty impressed with my skills.

Last night I was really craving something sweet, but not too sweet, while I was editing my pro paper (which I turn in on Friday!). In the past I’ve made popcorn and added cinnamon and splenda to make it sweet. Last night I used the following ingredients…

White chocolate chips, the knockoff splenda (grad student budget) and natural popcorn (do you know how hard it is to find PLAIN popcorn?? sooo hard)

Just pop the popcorn bag like normal and add in the splenda and as many white chocolate chips as you desire…

You can’t even tell I added anything. It made every bite a surprise because the white chocolate chips melted on to the popcorn.

I can’t wait to find new ways to use the white chocolate chips!

What is your favorite type of chocolate? 

What unexpected ways do you use chocolate?
