I don't look at these cookies as a failure. I mean do the taste they way I was expecting…no? Do they have a Vanilla coke flavour like I thought they would? … no. But are they delicious none the less?... why yes, yes they are!!
I am a huge coca cola fan. I drink one a day and I have no shame. Don't judge! ;p (there may be coke in that mug...like 100%)
I find they are always coming out with different flavours and one of my absolute favorites is vanilla coke. So, when I found a recipe for vanilla coke chocolate chip cookies, I couldn't wait to try them.
When it comes to chocolate chip cookies, I've been set on finding 'my' recipe. Know what I mean? One that is my go-to; the one I'm known for. The kind that people automatically think of me when they eat these cookies. I haven't found one yet…but this one may be a winner.
Anyway, I made them expecting a unique taste. Unfortunately, I didn't get a coke taste. It was rich, soft, thick, vanillaey, chocolatey etc. Everything that makes a great chocolate chip cookie, however it's wasn’t a vanilla coke chocolate chip cookie. It was almost like the coke enhanced the originally flavors and gave it a great texture. For those reasons, I consider this a success. I loved these cookies a lot! I wouldn't advertise them as Vanilla Coke Chocolate chip cookies. Instead I would say they are Chocolate Chip cookies made with vanilla coke. The raw cookie dough however, did taste better then any other raw cookie dough I have consumed lol
These are definitely a great go to CC cookie recipe! Definitely pin this one!
