Have you ever been the recipient of a random act of kindness? I occasionally do nice things for the people around me, but typically its related to a birthday or to return a favour. I don't expect anything in return either. I usually get a bit of a warm fuzzy feeling when I've made someone's day.
But when the tables are turned and someone does something thoughtful and kind just for you - especially first thing in the morning it can be a game changer. I was having a usual Wednesday morning... I accidentally cut someone off on the way into work. I do emphasize the word accidentally. But other than that, it was the usual mid week routine. Until I arrived at my desk as saw this.......
My co-worker Deb who is an awesome cook discovered Hershey's Special Dark chocolate chips and made the recipe on the back of the bag. She brought a lot of the cookies just me! I did share these with a few people in the department - including the two guys I ran 8k with at lunch. Ok - I bribed then with the promise of cookies if we picked up the pace a bit. I also shared with my kids... geez this sounds like the magic porridge pot of cookies.
Nonetheless the fact that she would bring these cookies in a share them with me totally made my day. They were amazing too. Here is the link to the recipe. http://www.hersheycanada.com/en/recipes/recipes-by-type/6/Cookies.aspx?ICID=CH1434 The next time I'm out and about I'm picking up a bag of these. I think this recipe would make a great valentine's treat for the kids or maybe just me.
