College Care Packages

I have sent many a college care package! It is something I truly enjoy doing and they are much appreciated. It doesn’t even have to be a big to do, college kids enjoy getting any mail! It makes them feel cared for and appreciated! Before college starts back up, I send a little list of questions as to likes for snacks, candy, quick/easy micro meals, puzzle books, etc. Then I plan out what kind of package I want to send each month. The first one is usually the cookie package! It is the one that always gets the most smiles, especially the ones with chocolate chip cookies!  If you know of someone in college, drop them a little note and if so inclined add a treat to it!

I have made many, many different kinds of chocolate chip and I have many recipes! The one I’m sharing today is (in my opinion) the best and the one most seem to enjoy! Give them a try, you will not be disappointed! The recipe is from allrecipe.com

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie


2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

1 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 egg

1 egg yolk

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips



Preheat the oven to 325   degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.


Sift together the   flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.


In a medium bowl, cream   together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended.   Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the   sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand   using a wooden spoon. Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared   cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.


Bake for 15 to 17   minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool   on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool   completely.
