Chocolate chip cookies are a favorite in our house, its almost something that should be considered a sin to even think about changing up! But for this Valentines Day, I dared to do so. I turned chocolate chip cookies red and added hazelnuts. They turned out delicious!

One of my wife’s favorite candies are those little hazelnut chocolate candies that everyone buys during Christmas time. So I thought it would be cool to combine that with her favorite chocolate cookies! Although she’ll usually tell me “Why do you always have to change up a good thing?!” And to that I say “Variety is the spice of life”

Seriously, this literally comes out of my mouth when she says that. Because I’m 89 years old.

Every now and then, when I do decide to change up a good thing, I’ll get lucky enough that there will be other people in the house that enjoy the change as much as I do.

That’s not to say what I made wasn’t good, but my wife (and its coming apparent that my 3 year old as well) are creatures of habit. Don’t change things on them, especially when you’ve teased that you’re going to make a dish, but then change a few ingredients to experiment. It’s taken me 100 times, but I’ve slowly learned my lesson. That’s my family, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

So I now make minor tweaks, like, you know change the entire color and add some nuts – Totally minor! But it’s valentines day you you have to be a little festive and snazz up your chocolate chip cookies, right?!

My son was SUPER excited to see red chocolate chip cookies. But this kid, is SO PICKY, and cannot stand textures – he cracks me up. After trying one he was like “Daddy I don’t like these. I want them without the chocolate and nuts”. Only a toddler would be picky about their cookies. Only a toddler..

So its going to be back to kitchen making chocolate chip cookies without the chocolate chips or nuts, just for Brayden. But my wife and I will be enjoying the first batch. Soft chewy chocolate chip cookies with hazelnuts sounds like the perfect dinner!
