My pregnancy cravings tend to come and go rather quickly. One moment, something will sound really good to me and then the next minutes, I’m craving something completely different. But I think like with all normal woman, chocolate is a craving that has to be had. Once the idea of chocolate pops into your head, it’s almost impossible to shake. Which is what happened to me, Oh, about a week ago.
Normally, I keep some chocolate stashed away in my freezer. I tend to keep the Lindt Truffles on hand in there along with a few of my favorite mini candy bars. I have a thing…I like really cold chocolate, unless it’s brownies, cookies, cupcakes, or cakes. I was out of all of my super cold chocolate and I was slightly freaking out. I could feel my head becoming hot with worry and my hands getting shaky. Okay, I’m exaggerating a lot! But I really wanted some chocolate. So I made these incredibly easy cookies that my sister made for me in 2008 (when I happened to be pregnant with little Eden) and I could feel life becoming more livable and enjoyable as I shoved gently placed my baking sheets into the oven.
One bite of these cookies and my fears of a long sweltering summer without air conditioning and a painful labor and delivery disappeared. I felt content and happy as I bit into a cookie. (Okay, in what normal world does a pregnant lady eat just ONE cookie? I ate 3 or 4 cookies.) I can’t promise your life will be better if you make these cookies. But I bet ya you’re mood will greatly increase if you make them, even if it’s only for a short while.
