Chocolate Cookie Yumness

The kids had Thursday and Friday off from school for parent teacher conferences. Instead of doing anything remotely fun, we all sat around reading books, lounging in our pajamas and watching movies. Oh, and we went to the dentist and Max had to go in for some testing. The dentist recommended we take Calvin (who is 3) to an orthodontist to have his top jaw "stretched" because he has a cross bite and it is growing slower than his top jaw. Exactly how do you convince a 3 year old to wear a retainer? This has nothing to do with chocolate cookie yumness - I am rambling.

The chocolate comes in here: Chocolate Marble Cookies from The Good Cookie.
This is a great recipe to make with kids because there are a lot of hands-on steps. It's a basic cookie dough with cocoa added to half of the dough and pecans and chocolate chunks added to both. To make the cookies you take a small dab of the white dough and a small dab of the chocolate dough and have a kid roll them together and then place on a cookie sheet. The another kid dibs a glass into sugar and squashes them flat.

Max licked the beater and read while we baked. Natalie and Sophie rolled and placed dough and Calvin was the squasher!
