Chocolate Chip Shark Fin Cookies

According to some websites, today is chocolate day. Personally, I LOVE chocolate. It’s so yummy! And you can use it with so many different things.

This week is also Shark Week on the Discovery Channel. I decided to kill two birds with one stone and make Chocolate Chip Shark Fin Cookies! I will be 100% honest, they aren’t the most fantastic looking shark fins you will ever see. But hey, I tried! I adapted the recipe from SugarBaker.

I wish I had had a shark cookie cutter, but apparently my parents didn’t love me as a child. Instead, I used a heart (you’ll understand below.)

I completely forgot to keep taking pictures after adding the rest of the ingredients. Whoops. Once everything is added, make sure to chill the dough in your fridge for at least an hour. You want it nice and firm.

I decided to roll my dough out on a cutting board so it would be easier to clean up. Roll it out as thick as the chocolate chips. Although it is pretty impossible to roll it out any thinner. Chocolate Chip Shark Fin Cookie Recipe from Stingy, Thrifty, Broke
