A Tale Of Two Cookies

This Is Chocolate Heaven...Dibs On Licking The Bowl
Lets Go Vikings...Lets Go!!! High school basketball season has arrived and we were asked to create basketball sugar cookies and our delicious chocolate filled creations called Chocolate Chunkers to get the Mazama Vikings pumped and sugared up for the season.
If you haven't tried the Chunker yet, your missing out. Its a big, chunky and thick cookie with 5 different kinds of chocolate and a little flour to hold 'em all together. Its perfect for a nice strong cup of coffee, a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon or ice cold milk.
The batter starts with a nice little mix of melted chocolate, butter, flour and sugar then comes the real fun. For this we used pounds of pure chocolate...dark, milk, bittersweet, unsweetened, semi-sweet and white. Fresh out of the oven they are a major OMG moment (we have lots of those around here)!
Ready To Be Devoured By Hungry Teens
Creating basketballs was more of a task then we originally imagined. The baking of the sugar cookies was simple but creating an orange frosting that matched that of a real basketball was somewhat difficult and then piping on black buttercream to finish the whole look and being born a perfectionist made it even more time consuming. Ensuring each line was perfectly curved and precise.
Theres nothing like seeing your final project come out exactly how you imagined it would in the end. Once we staked them, bagged them, labeled them and tied them it was perfect
