Honey. Sweetheart. Snookums. Sweets. Cookie. Stay with me…

I’m trying to see how many terms of endearment I might know. Babe. Mama. Big Daddy. Ewww! That one sounds like it should be used elsewhere, and never here.

How about Sweetpea? Anyone use that one? What do you call your significant other?

I say “Honey” or “Sweets”. Very original, I know. As long as he answers to my call, who cares what name I use, right?

Can I let you in on a little something? I want to call everyone a cutesy name. Sweets is my favorite. I feel that almost everyone in this world is sweet. In my little boxy world, there’s no evil. And if there is, I will kill it with my cookies.

Speaking of…

I’d like to take this moment to request that you make these Chocolate Butterscotch Cookies for yourself your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day. Especially if one of you is having a so-so day. These cookies will heal you. No matter what you are huffing and puffing about, these cookies will make it all better.

They are sensational. MAGICAL! Trust me on this one. You want this baby in your face!┬áIt’s thin, soft, gooey, chocolatey. And butterscotchy. And they melt in your mouth.

I promise you that after Snookums takes that first bite, he/she will be begging for more cookies.

Now if I could just make my Snookums clean up the mess I made while working on these gems…

    Hey Sweets! ;) These look divine! I cannot wait to whip some up. I’m having a major chocolate attack!

    These look so good and I am eager to try them…..the amount of flour somehow doesn’t seem right…is a fourth of a cup of flour correct?

      HI Cheryl! Yes, that is correct. :) These are my favorite cookies…chocolaty, lite and delicious!

    It’s probably a good thing those aren’t in front of me right now. I’d eat them ALL.

    I made these this morning and they were deliciously light and chewy! They didn’t turn out as pretty as yours. Mine or more flat and bubbly, but delicious nonetheless. :D Thanks for the great recipe!

      Ooooh I’m so glad you liked them! But too bad they didn’t perk up. :( At least they were delicious. :)

    Well our favorite thing to call each other, and makes us giggle, nommy muffin cocoa pop! True story by the way! But most of the time I call him honey, love, or babe:-) Your cookies do look magical….magically delicious! Hugs, Terra

    WOW! I could eat about a dozen of these! Of course I would have to run around the block a few times afterwards, but it would be worth it!

    The pics of these cookies are fab! I love little endearing nick names.

    Oh my gosh, Sweets is my term of endearment of choice for my husband. I have never called him honey or sweetheart or darling or babe…only sweets for the last dozen years. I thought I was original, LOL!

    I am loving your photography. Each post you publish means one drool-worthy shot after another. Perfect timing for this post, too. I have tons of Christmas candy I never used–butterscotch chips included–I think I know now what they’ll be used for. :)

    Wow, looks incredibly easy to make and the outcome looks soooooooooo irresistible! Definitely great V-day sweets. I’m sure your house always has many kinds to choose from. ;)

    I’d call someone anything they want if they made me these cookies ;)

    they sound AMAZING!

    Ive wanted to make the Donna H brownie cookies forever. You may just have convinced me. Stunning. Love butterscotch too! Pinning!

    I call everyone darling (in my head, because I’m too shy). It makes me feel taller…less hobbit-ish.

    These cookies are beautiful! It’s hard to find recipe that call for butterscotch chips (why?). Love your photos!

    Well who wouldn’t love a dozen or two of these!?! So fantastic!

    I had to laugh at Sweet Pea. That’s my son’s sled hockey name. You’d think the teen would be annoyed when mom is yelling “Sweet Pea! Defense!” but apparently he finds it endearing.

    Kate, these look yummy–I’ll have to see if I have butterscotch chips. I know I’ve got some sort of non-chocolate chips in the back of the cabinet.
