A delicious cookie made with milk chocolate chips and chocolate syrup
     I am constantly formulating different chocolate chip cookies, because they’re so versatile and forgiving.
     I had been using the traditional semi-sweet chocolate chips as my go-to when developing my new cookie recipes. But today, milk chocolate chips were my first thought. 
     Then I thought of a different element: chocolate syrup. I always have some Hershey’s Syrup on hand, so why not try it? I don’t know if this would make them too sweet or not, but I really wanted to use something a little different to contribute to the milk chocolate theme while retaining the brown sugar cookie dough. So maybe I’ll add just a tablespoon to see what happens….
     I decided to also use dark brown sugar instead of the traditional light brown, because I thought the more prominent molasses-type flavor of the dark brown sugar would contrast nicely with the lighter and sweeter flavor of milk chocolate, as opposed to the traditional semi-sweet. 
     The addition of the Hershey’s Syrup was just the right touch and was not too sweet, as I had originally feared. It perfectly accentuated the milk chocolate theme. 
    They are even better the next day when the flavors have had a chance to meld, with a taste almost reminiscent of a chocolate malt milkshake. 
     Give this recipe a try!
