cookie close call

Today my husband, brother in law, neice, and mother in law went to a local deli for lunch. At the counter they have homemade cookies - macadamia nut and chocolate chip - for sale. I thought to myself  "hmm, i can have the macadamia nut cookie because there's no chocolate in them!" 

Sitting at the table, my brother in law gives us one of the macadamia nut cookies he had bought.  Then as I started to unwrap the saran wrap it hit me.  White chocolate! No cookie for me! My husband was even sweet enough to ask my brother in law, who is a chef, if white chocolate came from cocoa.  He was trying to help me out and find a lovely loop hole.  No dice though, white chocolate comes from cocoa or so he said. 

Thanks for all your comments on my "No chocolate" post yesterday.  This really is going to be a challenge for me and I'll need your support for sure!

7:00 pm update - 2 ladies at my husbands work gave him cookies tonight. of course they are no bakes and have chocolate in them!  AHHH!


  1. I always thought white chocolate was not chocolate at all..not really sure what it is but I thought that is what I heard. But I do love macadamia cookies though :)
