Phenomenal dessert

I don’t know that I’ve ever posted recipes here, but this was so yummy , and so incredibly freaking easy , that I feel it is my duty to share.

Kaki’s Quick Chocolate Drops

1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 stick butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
sea salt, optional

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Spray baking sheets with cooking spray.
  2. In a microwavable bowl combine the milk, chocolate chips, and butter. Heat in the microwave on high for 2 minutes. Remove from the microwave and whisk the ingredients together with a whisk.
  3. Dump in the flour and vanilla and whisk to mix thoroughly. (The dough will be very loose.) Drop by the teaspoon onto the baking sheet. Each cookie should be no bigger than a bite. Bake in the preheated oven for exactly 7 minutes.
  4. Remove the cookies to a rack to cool. Sprinkle with sea salt.

I don’t think you need the whipped cream at all, actually.

Start the cookies first, then make the sorbet. You can have dessert ready in 30 minutes , or whip it up the day before. It is truly scrumptious.
