Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

These total hit the spot! I was having a chocolate withdraw and needed to get a fix of chocolate quick! Chewy in the middle, crunchy on the sides and full of white, semi sweet and milk chocolate chips, these babies are sure to please. Pass the milk please! 😉

*SEE NOTES*

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temp.
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, room temp.
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cups classic white premium baking chips (I just call them white chocolate chips. :))
  • 3/4 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cups milk chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a standing mixer cream butter, sugars and vanilla together (about 10 minutes.)
  3. Next, beat in eggs.
  4. Sift together flour, salt and baking soda. Slowly stir in flour mixture to creamed mixture. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl if needed.
  5. Add chocolate chips. Shape cookie dough into 1 inch sized balls and place 2 inches apart on a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes, no longer if you want a chewy middle.
  6. Remove cookies from oven and let set on baking sheet for at least 2-3 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

*Notes*

As you see in my picture, my cookies are huge. I shaped them into approx. 2 inch cookie dough balls and baked for approx. 14-15 minutes. If you would like to get the effect of the chocolate chips on top of the cookies, after the dough ball is formed and placed on your baking sheet, gently stick chocolate chips into the dough ball and bake as normal.

 Dr Seuss GREEN EGGS AND HAM treats

This week is Dr. Seuss week at my kids school, everything they eat, wear or do has to do with Dr. Seuss.  They think it is so much fun, and I love their excitement about learning.  My mother in law made these adorable Green Eggs and Ham treats for my daughters class.  Yes she really is about the best Granny ever! I loved the idea so much I thought I would share them with you too!

To make these all you need is

Place the pretzels down on foil or a  Non-Stick Silicon Baking Mat, put a white chocolate disc in the middle, place in the oven at 250 degrees for 3-4 minutes.  JUST as they start to melt pull them out of the oven and place a green M&M in the middle.  Let them cool and enjoy a fun Dr. Seuss snack.

How to Dye Easter Eggs with Shaving Cream

 

If you need more Easter Egg ideas, be sure and follow our Easter Pinterest Board

TIP: if you are worried about the shaving cream getting into the egg shell, you can do the same process with Cool Whip and food color. See how to make COOL WHIP EASTER EGGS here. 

Every Easter we think of fun ways for the kids to enjoy dying and coloring their Easter Eggs. When you Dye Easter Eggs with shaving cream, the kids can get right in there and have fun in the shaving cream.  And the shaving cream will actually even help clean up the mess afterwards. And second to the fun tie dye colors on the eggs, the shaving cream is so cheap! You can pick up the shaving cream in most stores for under a buck! Make sure it is shaving cream and not shaving gel. The gel will not work like the shaving cream will.

Here is how you can dye Easter eggs with shaving cream to make swirl Easter eggs.

How to dye eggs with shaving cream, Shaving Cream SWIRL eggs, Easter Eggs, #Easter, How to make swirled easter eggs

First get the normal food coloring out of your cabinets. Or make sure you pick up the cheap liquid food coloring dye at the store.

Get one or two cans of shaving cream – remember it has to say cream, the shaving gel will not work.

A glass pan or flat bottom bowl or dish to roll the eggs in. A metal pan will work too if you don’t have glass, it is just the glass will not absorb the color like the small pits and scratches in metal might.

You can follow the directions on the back of the food coloring dye to make fun new colors. Make sure you place it in a glass cup or small bowl so it won’t leave a stain behind.

Next spray a layer of shaving cream in the bottom of the glass pan. You only need it no deeper then one inch. Anything more then that will just be wasted.

Here is a great deal on Foam Shaving Cream It needs to be “shaving foam” not the “shaving gel”

Spread the shaving cream some what smooth so the coloring does not run down steep slopes and pool together.

Then with as many colors as you want to use, we found between 2-4 works best or it just blends together too much and creates brown or ugly green.

Our favorite food coloring Dye – McCormick Assorted Food and Egg Dye

Place the drops of the food coloring in random spots all over the layer of shaving cream. The more random the better the colors will swirl.

Next with a thin toothpick, or a small narrow stick or even a lollipop stick, drag the stick through the shaving cream in random lines. Large swirls and loops will give the layering effect.

Once you have the swirls the way you think looks great, place the Easter Egg in the shaving cream on one end.

Gently roll the Easter Egg in a straight line from one side to the other.

Carefully pick up the Easter Egg and gently place it on cardboard so it will not roll.

You can leave it there till the shaving cream starts to dry up. Usually about 5-10 minutes and you can then clean it.

To clean it take a paper towel and gently dry off the shaving cream off the egg.

Don’t worry the food coloring has already done its magic.

After you have all the eggs cleaned off and dried, now you can roll them around and check out your artistic work!

Our kids enjoyed every part. With the old tablets and vinegar, they always got bored and thought it smelled.

Using shaving cream our kids thought it smelled great and had fun at every part of the project!

Getting to watch the shaving cream fly out of the can when they sprayed it into the pans, and then even had fun smoothing it all out.

It was fun for us to watch them strategically place each dot of food coloring.

They will tell you the best part was the rolling it in the cream and then the drying part when they got to see their fun work!How to dye eggs with shaving cream, Shaving Cream SWIRL eggs, Easter Eggs, #Easter, How to make swirled easter eggs

So make it a fun night with your kids. Share this with your family and learn how to dye Easter Eggs with shaving cream. They will make fun bright designs that will win any Easter Egg coloring contest out there!

And then when you are all done you have some fun looking eggs ready for egg salad sandwiches, potato salad and all the fun things you can make with hard boiled eggs!
