Yesterday evening, my 6-year-old cousin Guel came over. We decided making cookies would be a fun thing to attempt. Thanks to a friend of mine who sent chocolate chips down with my mom, I have plenty of them on hand. Naturally we made chocolate chip cookies. In the small-ish town where I live I have not been able to find chocolate chips, but it had never occurred to me that the kids here have never actually eaten chocolate chips. I opened the bag before we began and offered a morsel to my cousin. Have you ever seen someone eat a chocolate chip for the first time? Pure DELIGHT. My cousin is a chocolate lover and the chocolate chip was almost more than he could handle. In the midst of stirring the batter, cracking eggs, and spilling flour all over the floor, I saw a little hand discreetly taking chocolate chips one by one out of the bag. My mouth remained shut however. After all, who am I to spoil the experience of tasting a chocolate chip for the first time?!
Oh and I thought his reaction was grand when he had the chocolate chip. You should have seen how large his eyes became when he saw the cookies!
