Mango Chocolate Chip Cookies

Now here’s a cookie that needs some work. Don’t get me wrong, they were very tasty, but this is the first time I “invent” a cookie and I wasn’t very satisfied with the results. They were kind of soft and a little chewy. Maybe because I used a “fresh” mango that wasn’t very fresh (that’s what I get for buying mangoes in October!). I will have to try next time in the summer with good and juicy mangoes. Anyway here is what I did:

  1. Maybe the first time they’re not perfect – isn’t that how incredible things are invented? Good for you for trying something different.

  2. omg, I love mangoes! This is such an interesting idea: maybe after you rework a recipe to perfection, you could let me know? :)

    Btw, like the new look of your blog.

  3. Hey Ben, did you save me some cookies??? They sounds pretty good. Sounds like your creative juices are working overtime. Good job.

  4. I’m a cookie newbie so I have nothing useful to suggest. Nice idea for chocolate chips though!

  5. Ben, looking good as always. Please come by my blog and pick up an award I have for you. Thank you corazon.

  6. Mango chocolate chip? Sounds very choco-tropical, my friend. Maybe they were a little chewy because the mango adds too much moisture? I’d prob add a little coconut and play some Jimmy Buffet in the meantime :)

  7. Hmmmm….I’m thinking about these. Not because I don’t think they wouldn’t be good, but I can’t imagine the taste. Mango always makes me think of fresh and tropical — light. Chocolate chip cookies make me think of warm, cozy, comforting — full! But you never disappoint with your creative ingenuity! I’m serious. I bow down to you for that oh great Ben. Whacha cooking for that secret dinner? Huh? Can’t wait.

  8. these look amazing! i love mangos and chocolate…what a combo!

  9. Mango and chocolate chips? Crazy! but worth a try. Thanks for the recipe, I can’t wait to make and try them.

  10. Hi! your cookies look great and I’m dying to try them but im a noob therefore I like to clarify something with you its about the butter is it 1/2 a cup before its melted or 1/2 a cup after its melter? One more thing how many cookies would this make? thanks
