Chocolate Cookies & sleepovers at the next level

When I find a recipe for cakes and cookies that works and works well I use it over and over again, trying out different variations. A couple of months ago a friend gave me a recipe for some cookies and I've baked them over and over again since, in various different flavour combinations.

Yesterday I baked two batches of them, one for the Preschool summer fair, which had mixed spice in, and another batch for Sam to take on a sleepover tonight. He's been on lots of sleepovers in the past but this one is a bit different. He's at High School now and has made lots of new friends, friends that I don't know nor where they live, friends whose parents I don't know, and the sleepover is at the house of one of those friends. It's a big step. I've spoken to and text the Mum of the friend and she seems very nice and has assured me they (his friend since he was 4 is going too) will be well looked after. The other friend's dad (we've known him for 8 years) is taking them, and I trust his judgment. It's time to let go a little...... but I'm hoping these will keep him coming back to his Mummy.
