As a kid, I looked forward to “Christmas Cookie Baking Day” each year with great anticipation. The joy of being in the kitchen as a family making lots of different types of cookies to enjoy and share with others was a tradition I loved. Last year, I decided to bring it back and introduce my own kids to this fun holiday tradition. We had such a great time sharing the joy of baking cookies and sharing them with others! Last week, I decided to start testing out some new recipes for this years cookie baking day, and Coca-Cola Chocolate Chip Cookies are definitely going to be on our list of cookies to make and share this holiday season.
While searching Pinterest for new cookie ideas, I came across a recipe for Coca-Cola Chocolate Chip Cookies, but they looked too thin. I prefer my chocolate chip cookies to have a bit more substance, so I decided to take that recipe and my own favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and tweak them to come up with my own Coca-Cola Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. When all my taste-testers gave it rave reviews, I knew I’d created a recipe worth sharing!
We’re in the middle of a “no spending month” challenge (in an attempt to clean out our freezers and pantry), so I was glad to see I had all but one of the ingredients I needed for the Coca-Cola Chocolate Chip Cookies in my pantry. The only one missing was the Coca-Cola, so I stopped at the local Family Dollar store to grab a 2L of Coca-Cola. I was excited to see that they had the Limited Edition Holiday Packaging – the polar bears are my favorite!
Family Dollar is my go-to destination when I have just a few items on my shopping list. It’s the closest store to where we live, making it super convenient, and I know that I can get quality products at a great price when I shop there.
