Specialty’s Cafe At-Home Semi-Sweet Chocolate Cookie Mix

Several years ago I tried Specialty's Cafe cookies for the very first time. Since then I have been a regular, and I was excited to try their at-home mixes so I could make my own Specialty's cookies. The cookie mix is $12 and comes in semi-sweet chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate varieties. Each box comes with a bag of sugar/flour mixture and a bag of chocolate chips. All you need to add is 5 Tablespoons of butter, vanilla, and 1 egg. They came together in a breeze and go right into the oven after mixing (not refrigeration time required). 12 minutes later I had delicious semi-sweet chocolate chip cookies that were very similar to the real thing. For me the only difference was the size (cookies from the mix were slightly smaller) and the texture (mine were a little gooier and softer in the middle than cookies from the bakery). I also froze a couple of balls of dough and made them two nights later. They turned out just as good as the first round and did not require any thawing. I just left them in the oven about three minutes longer. Overall, this mix is definitely worth a try and would make a great gift!
