Double Chocolate Chunk Mashmallow Cookies

Pin It

My kids are interesting creatures. When I ban the tv & video games and tell them to play with their toys, I get blank stares and proclamations of boredom. When I tell them to clean their room, they play with their toys. When I tell them to play together, they fight. And when I tell them to get dressed, they laugh and play together. If I play my cards right, I could use reverse psychology to get what I want from them. But, 9 times out of 10, I need them to get dressed and not play. You know what I mean?

My kids are also into music. My oldest is 10, the youngest 5. We’ve stopped playing kids music in the car and finally get to listen to the radio. They now know songs that I’ve never heard of. It just sorda happened. I got old, I suppose.

“I heard this at my cousin’s house.”

“They played that song at dance class.”

But, I still know more than they do, although the Professor doubts me.

We took my in-laws out to dinner Saturday night for an early celebration of Father’s Day. We went to Shogun, a Japanese bar & grill, like Benihana’s, here in San Diego.

The kids were nagging. They wanted the foods they were familiar with.

The Professor pouted and complained, “Why do we have to try Japanese food? Why can’t we just go get kabob?”

We explained that this was a treat. They’d get dinner AND a show. They didn’t care. They didn’t believe us.

It all changed when we sat at our table and the chef arrived. Flames shot up. Eyes bugged out. Smiles were all around.

Middle-Child told Daddy that Mommy needed a table like this to cook for them. The Professor gobbled down his steak and rice, and the Princess ate tofu in her onion soup (we said it was chicken).

Just another funny moment in our lives with our kids.

It has nothing to do with these thick & delicious Double Chocolate Chunk Mashmallow Cookies.

I made these to commemorate the beginning of summer. You know, roasting marshmallows over a campfire?

Remember, summer isn’t officially here yet. Tomorrow is the summer solstice and the first day of summer.

So go enjoy!

And crank up the music in your car and sing out loud to embarrass your kids!

  1. Fun family times and delicious summertime cookies!

    I helped out w/ my nephew's Grad night over the weekend and they had a karaoke stage — there was not one song I heard from this decade; all 80's & 90's music selections. Sing as loud as you can!!!

    Oh my gosh, your kids could be mine. The way you wrote that, about how they behave when you ask them to do something, it's my kids EXACTLY! And my kids would adore these cookies, too!

  3. I think it's universal with kids. When we go to a restaurant or park and see kids behave as badly as ours like to do, it makes my hubby and I breathe a sigh of relief!
