The wisdom of tradition

I just made chocolate chip cookies, and thought myself very clever because I left the chips out of some of them. I always enjoy the rest of the cookie more than the chocolate chips, so why not? Well, sometime around my sixth chipless cookie, they began to taste cloyingly sweet. I realized that the semisweet chocolate counterbalances the rest of the dough and that's what makes it so delicious. Live and learn!

I have been tempted to make them without the cookie. Just chocolate chips.

Hey that's cool. I think I'll call it Chocolate Bar.
