Chocolate Chip Memories

Making chocolate chip cookies should be a childhood rite of passage, along with summer lemonade stands and scraped knees.    There is the excitement when Mom agrees to let you mess up the kitchen for an hour, the intense concentration required to carefully crack the egg so no shell falls into the bowl, the rustling sound of the yellow bag of chocolate chips when you sneak one or two as “tasters. “ Then there’s the anticipation of getting to lick the spatula or nibble a bite of dough as you drop it by the spoonful onto the cookie sheet.  Impatiently you wait until the timer rings, the delicious aroma of home-baked chocolate chip cookies fills the house with its sweet chocolate goodness and your mouth begins to water in anticipation of the warm, gooey treat you are about to devour with a cold glass of milk.

Pillow Pets Sweet Scented CookiePup takes all of those happy memories and combines them in a stuffed animal that you can hug. The subtle scent of chocolate chip cookies will remind you over and over again of the yummy smells of childhood.  Here is our favorite recipe: #TollHouseCookies #PillowPets #CookiePup #ChocolateChipCookies #SweetScentedPets
