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! It’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…

    They are delicious, but I think it needs more flour because there were extremely delicate and crumbled very easily. How much more flour should I add to make a more substantial cookie? Thanks

    1. Hi Jenny! The original recipe had even less flour than this one, if you can believe it! 🙂 I would go ahead and add 1 more tablespoon of flour and see how that goes. If it looks too thin, add one more tablespoon. I hope that helps! Let me know. Have a great Sunday!!

    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?

  3. 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. 🙂

  4. Your posts always make me smile! And your goodies (and amazing photos) always make me drool…these are no exception! LOVE the idea of combining chocolate and butterscotch..yum, yum!!!

  5. 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!

  6. 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.
