Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cookies

Godiva… meet Mrs. Fields.
If chocolate covered strawberries and chocolate chip cookies had a baby, this is what they would look like. It’s a match made in cookie heaven!

Chocolate chip cookie purists will probably want to hunt me down and take away my cookie sheets after this one, but what can I say, I’m thinking outside the box. This is my latest attempt to incorporate fresh fruit into traditional recipes. A little sweet, a little sinful, all delicious. My blueberry chocolate chip cookies turned out so well that I decided to trade one berry for another. In this case, I needed to use up some stray strawberries… so here we are. It’s an amazing summertime treat, especially since fresh strawberries are bountiful right now.

This time around, I chose to use white chocolate chips – I’m obsessed – but you could certainly mix it up with milk chocolate or even dark chocolate chips. Or… mix two kinds together. Man, I should’ve wrote the blog before I baked the cookies. I think I brainstorm better that way! Oh well, I’ll put it in the memory bank for next time.
