The banana bread turned out to be a pile of mush. Soooo, I moved on to Plan B—I decided to attempt chocolate chip cookies. I have this recipe for chocolate chip cookies that I consider to be my no-fail recipe. In other words, if this recipe bombs then you are in a real baking dilemma. I was able to find all of the ingredients for the cookies with the exception of brown sugar—I smashed up piloncillo with a rolling pin as a close approximation. The dough mixed up rather nicely, and would you believe that the cookies baked up beautifully? Yes…they did and I have the pictures to prove it. They tasted yummy too, and I kind of enjoyed the fun bursts of piloncillo pockets in my mouth.Crispix here in Mexico, I was able to find a similar variation called Quaker Complete. The puppy chow was also a success! I hope this means that I’m getting better at baking here in Mexico. But, I bet it’s probably just had a stroke of good luck. We’ll see…

One final word...no forks allowed. You should definitely eat these with your fingers. They will taste that much better.

So, why the chocolate sorbet? Well my youngest brother happens to love chocolate and ice cream, so I'd thought he'd enjoy this treat. Dan reported that it was good, but a little too chocolate-intense for his liking.
I took a little lick and my reaction was that it is comparable to a gourmet fudgesicle. I think this recipe would be great in popsicle-form. Just a suggestion...
