Simple Sinful Double Chocolate Chip Cookies


Okay, Bitches, I admit it,
I’m a semi-homemade Sandra Lee wannabe.


Judge not, lest ye be judged.


I know what some of you stuck up, snotty Barefoot Contessa chicks
are saying this very moment.


“Well,  that’s


Tis not.


I suspect you’re the same chicks who assume  listening to audio books is not reading.


Am I right?


Are the words still flowing thru your body,  mind, soul?




Is the chocolate still melting upon your tongue?




Anyhow,  here’s one of
my Big Fat Italian Family’s’ all time fabulous easy as hell melt in your mouth recipes.

–These little sins kick kookie ass!

—-Darling, Reader,  do you have an easy recipe to share with my Big Fat Italian Family?  X X xxx

A Note: I wanted to show you my sister,  Kay’s,  pink garden flowers.   I go to the cemetery often &  play THIS SONG to Maximum volume. I mean,  It’s LOUD….This is my prayer.  This is my prayer when I cannot pray with my own words.

    Those cookies look sinfully yummy. I’ve been overdosing on chocolate cake, Kim.

    Kay’s flowers are so pretty. So beautiful. Just like her.

    Huge hugs to you, Kim! Love you!

    Kim, your recipe has so many of the same ingredients as a “Rich Chocolate Cake” I used to make years ago. It was featured in the New Mexican as the best cake ever, and it was gooey & chocolate-y. Calorie laden, too.

    1 box Duncan Hines devil’s food cake mix; 1 small package instant chocolate pudding; 1 12-oz package chocolate chips; 2 eggs; 1 3/4 cups sour cream.

    Mix it all together and scrape it into a buttered and floured Bundt pan.

    Bake 50 minutes in a preheated 350 oven until the cake springs back when pressed lightly. (Cake tester will emerge sticky; this is a very moist cake)

    That’s a beautiful song, Kim. I hadn’t heard it before. I didn’t know you could make cookies from a cake mix! That’s a new one for me too. They look very decadent and gooey and all that is good about a cookie xx

    What a beautiful pink basket of flowers, and so sweetly adorned, too. I’m sure she loves it.

    And, wow. That recipe looks easy peasy and fantasticly chocalatey! Yum!

    I love that song. Goose bumpy. God You Reign. Wow. That guy is good. Didn’t you intro us to him on another song awhile back?

    I have two super duper easy recipes to share but I’ll email them rather than put them here and take up too much space. They are easy, peasy deserts I used to take to the office. Unless you want a killer chili recipe (the kind with 2-3 kinds of meat, beans, etc). The kind people beg me to fix for Alpha Hubby’s office when they have chili day. It’s easy – just 27 ingredients of yumminess and I don’t even like chili!!

    Oh, the chocolatey goodness of those cookies has me thinking of, well, chocolate. I foresee it in my very near future, in a different form. In this form:
    Banana Soft Serve
    2 very ripe bananas, peeled, sliced in chunks, and frozen
    1 – 2 tablespoons Hershey’s Dark Cocoa Powder
    A splash of [non-dairy] milk, if needed, to help blend bananas
    Toss frozen banana chunks into a food processor
    Add 1 tablespoon cocoa powder (or 2, if you like *really* dark chocolate, like me)
    Process until smooth, adding a splash or more of milk, if needed.
    Eat all of it yourself, immediately.
    (Approximately 200 calories, if that matters)

    The flower basket and its angels are just gorgeous. xoxoxo

    Kim, you speak from the heart, always. That’s is why I keep coming back to your place. I get goosebumps when I read your words—always! I don’t know if it was the mix of the chocolate chip cookie recipe and the Kay’s basket which made me get goosebumps, but I did. How your sister must smile from the heavens when she sees this post! I love it! I must tell the daughter to send me a box mix of Devil’s foodcake, just so I can make these little bites of yummy! And now I can stop thinking of hot, gooey chocolate, my friend! Hugs to you from Roxy and me from sunny Spain! 🙂

    Oh SURE…right when I’m in the middle of the big Acid Reflux Fix-it Program. I could eat about six of those babies with one big inhale….shudder shudder.

    I make an Italian Stew with chicken, artichoke hearts, yummy tomato/onion sauce – over rice, which I replace with Quinoa. I cook it all up (I can smell it as I type!), let it “stew” in the oven, and serve it with a salad. Delish. But since you have some Italian in your DNA, I bet this is just a regular ol’ dish for you!

    Kay has one hugely skookum, loving sister named Kim!

    the song is moving, and the cookies not easily forgotten, i can tell you that. my uncle makes biscottis from scratch but definitely not a hand-me-down recipe among the italians as he packs pepper into them to his own personal liking. you gotta like that:) i know i’d love those cookies of yours. right now alecia and i have a toaster over that only heats up full blast so we’re limited in our baking. but i’ve got a screen shot of that recipe, thank you very much:)

    However, I appreciate Sandra Lee more and more as I get older.
