This is a super simple summer treat that I keep on hand for the random dessert or treats for the neighborhood kids.
1 cup softened butter
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tablespoon water
2 cups all purpose flour
6 ounces mini chocolate chips
Cream together butter, brown sugar, vanilla and water. Blend in flour to form a stiff batter. Stir in chocolate chips. Scoop (or form one inch balls) onto a parchment lined cookie sheets freeze completely. One frozen store in an air tight container or freezer bag.
We like ours frozen, but you can also keep these refrigerated. Notice there are no eggs making these safe to eat unbaked. The girls also like these chopped up on a bowl of ice cream. It's not unusual for me to double this recipe... it's a very popular treat!
