Last night, we trimmed our tree and Bryan made his favorite Christmas cookie... Chocolate Yum-Yums. They are DELICIOUS, and super easy! Here is the recipe for you to try them for yourself. Thanks, Grandma Dorsey!
1/2 stick butter
12 oz. semi=sweet chocolate chips
1 can condensed milk
1 cup flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
~ Preheat oven to 350 degrees
~ On low heat, melt butter and choco chips in a medium weight saucepan. Remove from heat just before the last chip melts - retained heat in the pot will complete melting
~ Stir in condensed milk
~ Mix in flour and vanilla (and nuts, if you like!) just until combined. Cookie dough is thick, and over mixing dries it out
~ Lightly grease a cookie sheet - Pam works just fine!
~ Drop cookie dough on sheet with a spoon and form them into little balls. Definitely works best if you forget the spoon and use your hands!
~ Bake for 7 to 8 minutes. Watch carefully - cookies burn easily!
~ Cool cookies on a baking sheet fully before storing
Makes about 3 dozen cookies
