How many of us wish our kids would eat their veggies without a fight or turning their noses up at them?? Boy do I have a great recipe for you and I promise your kids will love these!! How about Sweet Potato Chocolate Chippers???
My mother used to make Spudnuts and I love Potato rolls and potato bread so adding mashed sweet potatoes to chocolate chip cookies sounded like a great addition.These cookies turned out soft, moist and delicious!! You cannot tell there is sweet potato in this cookie I swear!! Your kids will never suspect these are good for them!!!
This recipe made a huge batch of cookies, and the dough freezes very well. I have been scooping my cookie dough on a tray and freezing it for a while now so when I feel like a cookie I just take out how many frozen cookies I want and simply bake them!! These are great when you have unexpected company drop by! Who doesn’t like a fresh baked cookie??? This dough is very versatile, switch up the chocolate chips with M&M’s, add nuts or white chocolate chips!! The possibilities are endless!!! I think the next time I make these I will put chopped Snickers bars instead of the chocolate chips!! How yummy will that be??
