I've never made cookies from scratch but it was cookie day in advanced chemistry for younger son and he and his lab partners chose white chocolate Macadamia nut cookies to make variations of. At home.
The cookies were a big hit but truly, when are homemade cookies not? Each kid brought a 2 dozen or more cookies of different flavours from mocha chip to sugar to oatmeal raisin and then shared but, "What of the excess?", I asked.
In my son's case he brought his extra cookies to his English class where people "swarmed" around him and by luck, there was enough for all. I asked him if there was any point in terms of learning and he said no, it was just cookie day, though he did learn how to properly crack an egg. :)
On the topic of sweet stuff however, oldest son chose to give me my Mother's Day present early--a fancy- wrapped box of Godiva chocolates in a pretty gift bag, which though welcome, got snarfed pretty quickly. Glad the box was small-ish.
I don't know if it's just me but Godiva milk chocolate has a bit too much of a creamy, almost fatty, mouth feel. It's definitely not something I'd want too often. I'm more a Snickers type of chocolate eater. Never really got down with expensive candy <shrug>. I did use to love chocolate but it appears the affair is over.
