Have you ever seen Olympic medalists pose with their medal as if they’re about to take a bite of it? I absolutely love watching the Olympics, and this year I was inspired to make an edible medal. But of course, this sweet gold medal would not be complete without some Olympic style commentary. Because wouldn’t it be amazing if there really were a baking olympics?! Make sure your sound is on for this one:
To make these, I wanted to create my own chocolate chip cookie recipe that had a little something golden in the mix. I know, I know, maybe you’re thinking: but aren’t there already enough chocolate chip cookie recipes on the internet? Probably. But there’s always room for one more! This one has golden syrup, a British ingredient that I absolutely love. Is it like honey? No comparison. Is it like maple syrup? Not quite. You really have to try it for yourself to find out.
Note that you can just make the chocolate chip cookies in the recipe without decorating them like a medal and they are perfectly delicious on their own.
