Tasteful Trick: Chocolate Chunk Cookies

'Tis the season for presents, delightful cocktails and Christmas cookies! Cookie exchange parties, anyone?

If you're looking to spice up your cookies this year, look to us for help! I decided to go with a classic -- chocolate chunk cookies -- but instead of using store-bought semisweet chips, I utilized our bark! So, with a standard recipe like this, I used just one 5 oz. bag of bark instead of the instructed 11.5 oz. of chocolate chunks. I figured our chocolate is rich enough and much more flavorful than typical semisweet chunks due to the added spices, nuts and fruit that's in bark. In one set of the recipe, I went with Pecan Cranberry bark, while the second batch included Toffee Almond bark. In order to break the chocolate down into chunks, I put the bark into a plastic bag and used a rolling pin to crush it all. Otherwise, I followed the recipe.

The result? Soft, cakey cookies with an amazing flavor from the chocolates.You can tell the difference for sure! I prefer the Pecan Cranberry cookies than the Toffee Almond. The darker chocolate comes through better in these cookies than the milk chocolate in the Toffee Almond. Plus, like the seconds bowl, it's fun not knowing exactly what chocolate you'll find.
