Thematic Thursdays- Chocolate Chips!!

So encase you didn't know or had forgot, today is National Chocolate Chip day! In honor of this yummy day I am posting some of my favorite recipes using up those tiny treasures:) Again not in any special order:

  1. Graham Cracker Brownies. The beauty of these little guys is that you can whip them up in no time and I normally have all the ingredients on hand:)
  2. Easy Double Chocolate Chip Brownies   These are SO yummy and easy that I hardly ever use a mix anymore!
  3. Peanut Butter Snack Cake. This cake is EASY, so yummy, and soft yet it doesn't even have any frosting.
  4. Vanilla Chip Cake  This is a bundt cake that is a nice change of pace because it is like a vanilla pound cake with just a sprinkle of chocolate chips throughout. 
  5. German Chocolate Brownies. ENOUGH said! I am sure if you have ever had these there is no doubt they should be on everyone's list of favorite desserts:)
  6. Chocolate Chip Pie  I made this pie for Steve one night on a whim and Boy did he LOVE it! It is like the best parts of pecan pie but with the taste of a chocolate chip cookie.
  7. Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake. This is my go to cake if I have to take something to a potluck or meeting and don't want to spend much time in the kitchen. It is dense and moist and the ingredients are brainless!
I suppose I shouldn't sign off without mentioning Chocolate Chip Cookies. But to be honest CCC's are such a personal taste thing that the recipes are there range far and wide! I am still looking for my favorite. I prefer a soft fat cookie with a butter taste, but maybe you prefer a flat crisp cookie. Oh well Steve is more than a willing Guinea Pig on my never ending quest for the "just right" recipe:) Hope you bake something chocolate "Chippy" today and think of me. Let me know if you want a recipe for something I couldn't find a link for and I will email it to you.

They all sound delicious. Can you post the recipe for the German Chocolate Brownies? I have a German Choc. cake frosting that's TO DIE FOR!!! I bet if poured it on brownies I'd lose consciousness :)

I made brownies yesterday with choc. chips, so I've already done my choc. chip 'good deed' of the week and my thighs can't take another one :) Thanks for sharing some great recipes!

Last night while we were at Awana awards Mrs. Nettleton made chocolate chip cookies. She put cinnamon in some of them, and it was really a nice twist. I bet she didn't even know it was chocolate chip day!

Oops, I missed out, but we did have chocolate chip pancakes for dinner one night last week. That, in my mind at least, is the perfect place for chocolate chips-dinner!:) (I had to repost because my grammar was so poor the first time it looked like I was from a foreign country!)
