Chocolate Surprise Cookies

Surprise Cookies by Martha Stewart (Photo from same source)

If you haven't figured out that I love chocolate yet, then here is your chance… I wanted to share one of my favorite cookie recipes. This lovely indulgence is actually a Martha Stewart find. I must admit that this is a rare thing since I can't entertain the thought of most of her recipes. You usually have to climb up the Andes mountains, pick the purple looking herb in its late stage (only available in winter), smash it with a mortar and pestle (must be made of marble), dry it out for 24 hours (when the humidity is less than 20%) and then simmer it for 15 minutes in a double boiler that is nonreactive... in order to obtain her "type of ingredients". Am I the only one who doesn't have half of her listed foods in the pantry? I require basic items because when I get the urge to bake it is usually spontaneous and what I have on hand is what usually gets prepared. (Hey, if you lived in the middle of nowhere you would think like this too!) With that being said, this is one of our family favorites. May I present *Surprise Cookies*. I didn't bother with another tutorial, who could compete with Martha?

Give it a try and tell me what you think…

Now it's your turn.
What is your favorite chocolate inspired recipe?
