Chocolate Chip Dalmatian Cookies

This unique twist on traditional chocolate chip cookies results in very tasty Chocolate Chip Dalmatian Cookies.

You'll notice that this recipe calls for white chocolate in addition to mini chocolate chips.

You might be wondering, "What exactly is white chocolate anyway?"

White chocolate differs from chocolate chocolate because it doesn't contain any cocoa solids.

Due to it's lack of cocoa solids, white chocolate only contains minimal amounts of caffeine and theobromine (common stimulants found in other chocolates.)

The main inredients in white chocolate are cocoa butter, sugar, milk solids and salt.

Be careful when melting white chocolate as it tends to burn easily.

To avoid scorching your white chocolate simply melt it over medium to low heat.

If stored in a cool and dry place, your white chocolate morsels or baking bar should keep for about 6 to 10 months.
