When your career is about creating new recipes, your kitchen becomes a busy lab and at times take over your life and memory. Yes, your memory becomes weak and you forget about your favorite recipe, the recipe that made you scream “WOW!” like this forgotten Chocolate Melting Moments recipe.
Making Chocolate Melting Moments.
I forgot all about its tantalizing taste, how it felt melting in my mouth, and the smile it drew on lips. These cookies were made on a regular basis but that’s long time ago. Today and while browsing the internet, I saw it, and it felt like meeting an old dear friend.
Suddenly, I remembered why I never made these cookies again. Well, it’s embarrassing to share this but I did manage to finish a whole batch on my own once. Forgive me, I won’t be able to tell you the time it took me to consume it because that is beyond embarrassing. To avoid such incidents, these cute looking and dangerous cookies were no longer baked.
Things you have to keep in mind while making Chocolate Melting Moments, use the best butter. Butter is the star of this recipe, besides the chocolate. Do not skip the cornstarch, it is the ingredient that creates great texture and makes chocolate melting moments melt in your mouth.
Another two interesting things about Chocolate Melting Moments. One it tastes even better the next day, second, you can keep it up to a week in an airtight container at room temperature, of course, these cookies never made it that long in my house.
