These bakery style Vanilla Coca-Cola chocolate chip cookies have a slightly crunchy exterior with a soft and chewy center.
It’s that time of the year again. NCAA® March Madness is here! I remember when I was in high school we created our own brackets and I somehow ended up winning. I think we got bonus points in the class for winning, but I just remember being so excited about finally winning something.
This year I picked up the Coca Cola NCAA® Final Four Packs available at Walmart. My boyfriend drinks Coca-Cola often so it was a great buy for the both of us. I’m always looking for new ways to mix up some of my favorite recipes. I wanted to incorporate the Vanilla Coke into my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.
The result… perfectly crisp and soft cookies. The vanilla coke flavor is subtle but makes the cookie get a crispy chewiness. I know you’re not supposed to eat the dough because of the uncooked egg BUT it was amazing! If you love eating raw cookie dough this recipe is beyond amazing.
I plan on whipping up a batch of these cookies for my boyfriend and his friends. They will be served with ice cold cans of Coca-Cola Vanilla, Cherry, and Zero. I’m secretly hoping no one wants any of the Coke Zero because I’ve got dibs.
You’re going to want to bake these cookies the second the dough is ready. Since the Coca-Cola is carbonated it makes the cookies puff up and be chewy. The longer you let the dough sit the less carbonated it becomes so your cookies will want to spread. I thought they still tasted great either way.
