I want to marry you cookies. I thought that would get your attention. I saw this recipe floating on Pinterest and was definitely intrigued. I mean, who doesn’t love a chocolate chip cookie but one that would inspire a marriage proposal? This was worth giving a try.

For the chocolate chip cookie purist however – the no nuts, no fancy white or dark chocolate chips, no oatmeal or peanut butter please, just plain ol’ chocolate chip cookie – hold onto your hat, this might be the recipe that converts you. Alternatively, you could call this the “everything-but-the-kitchen-sink-cookie” because there’s literally not a spare square inch of dough that isn’t loaded with semi-sweet chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, pecans, oats or cinnamon.

What makes this recipe particularly incredible though is the method of using one pot to melt the butter, then adding the sugars and other ingredients. First off, the sauce pan method means you can literally make this recipe anywhere. No fancy mixers or beaters needed at all. I will admit that I’ve actually made these in a hotel once, no joke. The other proposal-inducing element was the amazing smells of rich butter melting with sugar, cinnamon and chocolate…it’ll melt in your mouth, and quite possibly melt your heart.
