Just had a chocolate chip cookie at local bakery. Cookie was crunchy with gooey chocolate chips inside, like right out of oven gooey, but cookie was cooled. Any ideas?
Naturally, chocolate is solid at room temperature. The only reason that chocolate chips are ever gooey is because they have been warmed recently enough that the chocolate has not yet reached it's solid state.
You may want to consider making your own chocolate chips with a little bit more liquid than normal to get the soft texture.
Some Easy Ways to Warm Them Include:
- Throw the cookies up on your car windshield for a while.
- Stick them in the oven for a minute (generally dries them out)
- Put them in the Microwave for ~10-15 sec
