I love chocolate.
But I’m now convinced that chocolate hates me.
No matter what I do, it won’t melt.
I’ve mentioned this before—but now it’s getting out of control.
In the middle of complaining about chocolate, here are some cookies:
It was the chocolate coating that gave me a hard time.
Can someone please come over my house and show me how to melt chocolate???
Yes, I tried the microwave.
Yes, I tried the double boiler.
Yes, I tried the Wilton melting pot.
Yes, I screamed at it to melt.
No, I could never get it to the right consistency.
Well, at least the cookies ended up looking cute and tasting yummy.
I guess they were worth my fight with the chocolate.
But someday I’ll win…
