Chewy Molasses Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here’s another amazing recipe from joythebaker‘s blog.  My good friend sent me this cookie recipe and insisted that I MUST try it.  And it is definitely not your average chocolate chip cookie!  I made my own brown sugar using dark molasses which gave the cookie a very nice caramel taste.  Salty, chewy, caramel-y, and very chocolate-y all in one!

Ok, here goes.

New ingredients that I’ve never worked with before.

It’s pretty awesome to know I can make my own brown sugar. All it is is sugar+molasses! Extremely easy.

A lot of stirring.

And more stirring. But the brown sugar finally formed. (The whisk worked wonders)

Cookie dough balls.

I learned from Joy’s blog that salt helps to bring out the caramel flavor.

All done!

Next time, I’d try to make them thinner.
