On on the off chance you have broken your heart today, these incredible chocolate cookies I dedicate to you. These are as dark as the cloud hovering above your head but so moist and decadent there is no doubt in my mind, a cookie is all you need to glue what remains of your detonated cardiac muscle.
There is enough chocolate in this recipe to fill in all the holes – all 20 oz of it divided in only 12 cookies. Don’t be appalled. It is perfect just the way it is. And besides, there is no price for alleviating human suffering, is there? Plus, imagine all the dead butterflies in your stomach now coated in chocolate. Still very dead, but deliciously so.
Please don’t find me insensitive. I made you cookies, after all. Given you cannot eat them, but I am devouring them in your name. Which reminds me, have I ever told you my muay thai origins? While some fighters are born to fight, and others are driven mad by the quest to be the best in the world, I simply started muay thai to alleviate my own broken heart.
The last thing I wanted is to be a wishing well of disappointment and regret. Spending my evenings listening to the clattering pieces of my shattered heart didn’t appeal to me either. Sweat and lashing strikes for me, thank you. Mind you, I might’ve even used my hand wraps to keep my mangled self together.
But the point is, there is a wide array of pain in the world. If you must suffer, always choose that which will make you stronger. Believe in yourself and keep moving forward. If you can’t do that, believe in the cookies – damn yum course to salvation.
