In a recent interview, pastry chef and master chocolatier Normal Love told The Daily Meal, “I most enjoy making chocolate chunk chocolate chip cookies.  They’re what our customers and my family and friends request most, and it’s always gratifying to bake something that’s so well received.  But, they’re also fun because each time you make them, you can experiment a little — add more chocolate, more chips, throw in some walnuts.”

Chocolate Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Chocolate Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.
