I Dream of Chocolate……

“The human heart is the same everywhere” I read Ohran Pamuk, the Turkish Nobel laureate declare in an interview last week.

I guess what he meant was that all of us feel the same emotions; sad feels sad the world over right?

But our tastes ah! Now that’s something! It differs from nation to nation, culture to culture and person to person. What I find sweet is often too sweet for some and not sweet at all for another.

I’ve tried so many raved about recipes only to find them disappointingly average. I’ve also hesitatingly tried some simple seemingly uninspiring dishes only to be wowed by its taste.

Anyway I have for you a treat that all you chocolate lovers(who isn’t one?). I found the recipe from the legendary Pioneer Woman’s blog.

It’s a treat you WILL love.A LOT.And its crazy-simple too.

Prep Time: 15 Minutes Cook Time: 20 Minutes Difficulty: Easy Servings: 12

* 1 cup Brown Sugar
* 1 cup Margarine
* 1 whole Egg
* 2 cups Flour
* ½ teaspoons Salt
* 1 teaspoon Vanilla
* 6 ounces, weight ( To 8 Ounces) Chocolate Chips

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix together brown sugar and margarine. Add egg and mix together. Add flour, salt, and vanilla, and mix together well.
Spread dough onto cookie sheet to a thickness of 1/4 to 1/2-inch.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until slightly brown. At this point, pull out of the oven and sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over the top. Return to oven for 1 minute. Remove and spread melted chips over the top. Cut into squares.

This awesome recipe goes to FFPW Breakfast/Brunch theme round-up.
