I want your ugly, I want your disease ... I want your everything as long as it's free
Know what this is?
That is a BAD COOKIE. It's also the only one left. Apparently my family digs the Gaga AND bad cookies.
Had a sweet craving - saw a box of cake mix leftover from RumCakeExtravaganza09 - remembered some buzz about "cake mix cookies" and the rest? History.
Want to make your own Bad Cookie? Here's how.
1 box of yellow cake mix
1/3 cup of vegetable oil
a couple of big hunks of dark chocolate chopped up
what's left in a bag of walnuts you come across while looking for chocolate
Mix it all up, roll into balls, bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Pile them up on a plate and watch as your family devours them two by two all the while exclaiming that these are the best! cookies! you've ever made. Taste a cookie and marvel at it's odd soft yet oddly heavy and crumb free texture. Enjoy the flavor of artificial yellow. Try to suck the coating off the roof of your mouth. Drink some milk. Kick yourself once (gently, but with feeling) for wasting good chocolate. Remember how excited they were to have McDonald's for dinner the night before. Remember how underwhelmed they were about your homemade oreos. Ask yourself why you even try. Turn up the music. Dance to forget.
