I’m having one of those moments my mom did growing up, standing in line, waiting for that precious Cabbage Patch doll to give to her only daughter on Christmas morning. I don’t know if it’s something I asked for or something she just wanted to surprise me with because honestly, I don’t remember that Christmas or even how old I was when I got my first Cabbage Patch doll. But I remember the story. And I remember that doll. I remember the matching outfits my mom even made for me and the doll.

Only my moment… it’s over Frozen dolls. When I first decided I wanted to find them for the girls, every store was already sold out of Elsa dolls and it didn’t seem fair to get one doll and not the other so I got the smaller magi-clip dolls instead. A good substitute but still not what I had hoped to get. Here and there I’d search and find outrageously priced dolls, laugh a little and move on. Because really, who pays $40+ for a Barbie sized doll?

Anyway… my local store just got a new shipment in and I’m ridiculously excited to pick them up and surprise the kids. The only debate now will be, how long can I hold out? Can I wait until the movie release next month? Can I wait until Easter and put them in their baskets? Or will I cave and hand them over this weekend? I’m probably just as excited to give them to the kids as they will be to get them.

For the longest time I protested sweet/salty food. I just couldn’t wrap my head around it. I wanted nothing to do with it. In my mind, they were meant to be separate. Sweet or salty but not both. Once I finally caved, it was a whole new world of possibilities and loves. Given that I’ve been semi obsessed with cookies lately, it seemed fitting to finally whip up an amazing sweet and salty cookie.

These soft and chewy cookies are loaded with salty potato chips, chocolate and finished off with a sprinkle of coarse sea salt for an added boost of saltiness. If you’re a sweet and salty fan, then these are an absolute must make!
