Chocolate Chip Cookies: An Eleven Month Cookie (and 10 December Chocolate Chip Rules)

Crispy Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, SmittenKitchen.com
Hello December -- this is an official notice: Despite my love for chocolate chip cookies, they're officially off duty for the next 31 days

Chocolate chip cookies, despite their deliciousness are an eleven month cookie.

In the same way the easy listening radio stations says good bye to their regular Michael Bublé and Clay Aiken songs, they now are playing John Tesh's "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and Josh Groban and Faith Hill's "The First Noel."

In the same way, despite all the goodness of chocolate chip cookies these are off limit for December. There's too many other cookies (good and not so good) which have their one month chance in the spotlight. Whether it's frosted sugar cookies, chocolate dip pretzels, or gingerbread men.

So in case you're confused below are the rules for chocolate chips.

10 December Chocolate Chip Rules

  1. Chocolate Chips Cannot be Used in Chocolate Chip Cookies
  2. Chocolate Chips Can Be Melted and Drizzled
  3. Chocolate Chips Can Be Melted for "No Bake" Cookies (particularly if you live in the Midwest)
  4. Chocolate Chips Can Be Melted for Dipping Anything
  5. Chocolate Chips Cannot be Used in Chocolate Chip Cookies
  6. Chocolate Chips Can Be Used as Decorations (particularly buttons on snow men sugar cookies)
  7. Chocolate Chips Can Be Green & Red (but will actually just be chips, not chocolate)
  8. Chocolate Chips Can Be Melted for Dipping Anything
  9. Chocolate Chips Can Be Mixed With Other High Calorie Foods (such as condensed milk, coconut, and nuts)
  10. Chocolate Chips Cannot be Used in Chocolate Chip Cookies
P.S. If we do one of those Christmas cookie plate exchanges, I don't want to even see chocolate chip cookies.
