Day 3 of my Holiday Treats week also happens to be the Food Network Chef’s Challenge hosted by I blame my Mother featuring a Ellie Kriegar recipe. Ellie is famous for turning great recipes slightly healthier. Just up my alley.
On another note; Can you believe its been 15 weeks and 15 Food network challenges? Time really flies when your having a great time and I have found so many recipes that I really love. Here are a few of my faves so far: Pasta Bolognese, Mexican Chicken Stew, Blueberry Muffins, and Mini Shepard’s Pie.
I wanted to pick a treat to go with my treats week theme and I thought no better than triple chocolate cookies. They did not disappoint. They were sweet and chocolaty, with a nutty crunch! I love all the chocolate chunks. They would be a great addition to any holiday party.
