Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie…for one (or two)

My life became better when Picky Palate blogged her Giant Peanut Butter Reese’s Pieces Cookie for One a couple months ago. Well, she did it again, only this time with an Inside Out Rice Krispie Chocolate Chip Cookie. I never really intend on making the Rice Krispie portion (though I am intrigued) because Rice Krispie treats frustrate me. They make a mess and I don’t like messes. But, within that recipe is one for a giant chocolate chip cookie. Perfect. It did not disappoint and I see many more in my future.
