Chocolate Butterscotch Cookies

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?

Chocolate Cookie Recipe

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…

    Gooey cookies are pretty much the best thing ever! These look amazing and perfect for whipping up for v-day to give to your sweetie!

  2. Allyson says:

    Swapped the butterscotch chips for toffee chips.. Came out great!! Will be making them again!

  3. Jenny says:

    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. Katerina Petrovska says:

      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!!

  4. Caroline says:

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

  5. Cheryl says:

    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?

    1. Katerina Petrovska says:

      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.
