While I have no desire to eat a real Dalmatian, these Chocolate Dalmatian cookies are another story! This variation of the chocolate chip cookie has melted white chocolate in the batter as well as semisweet chocolate chips stirred in. Enjoy these tasty sweets, but remember that chocolate can be toxic for dogs, so don't be tempted to share your treats with any canine companions!
4 oz. white chocolate, chopped
3/4 lb. unsalted butter, diced and softened
1 C. sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
4 C. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
8-12 oz. semisweet chocolate mini-morsels
Melt white chocolate in double boiler over medium heat, stirring until smooth. Cream together butter and sugar until light but not fluffy. Beat in vanilla and cooled white chocolate. Combine flour and salt and gradually stir into wet ingredients. Add chocolate morsels. Roll dough into 48 balls. Place on nonstick baking sheet, 12 to a sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 14-16 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through baking time. Remove from oven and cool. Makes 48 cookies.
