Sometimes I buy a bag of trail mix specifically for any pieces of chocolate it might include.
(And by “sometimes,” I mean “always.”)
The last time I was eating trail mix, my husband said, “I don’t know why you don’t just eat a bag of chocolate.”
Well, the reason is quite simple: I feel better about my chocolate consumption if it’s mixed into a somewhat healthy snack — even though at the end of the day I’m left with a bag of nuts and dried fruit containing zero chocolate
Why am I talking about trial mix here!?!?
I just think it’s funny.
And I made these absolutely amazing Salted Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies because what I really wanted was the cookie dough!
Am I saying that baked cookies are in any way similar to trail mix?
No, but in my mind I see the correlation, and I hope get it, too. And I really hope you’ll make these cookies! Baked or not, the flavor is insanely delicious!
As you know, I’m a chef, not a botanist — so please forgive me if I’ve gotten this one wrong. I think this is Jupiter’s Beard. Of course, if you know otherwise, I’d love for you to leave me a comment telling me. Thank you!
