Everyone has a fond memory involving chocolate chip cookies. Maybe it’s because they’re comforting, sweet, gooey… or maybe it’s because they’re so often attached to memories or traditions. In fact, one of my fondest memories involves a childhood friend and half of a crunchy cookie. Nowadays we’re looking for more of that same comfort (come back, childhood!) without the processed sugars, irresponsible dairy, and other junk loaded in — enter these no-bake chocolate chip cookie balls.
We have the best peaches here in South Carolina. Are those fighting words? Maybe. Are they true? Entirely. Bright, sweet, supple, and juicy, SC peaches are one of those fruits that make you feel light while satiating your sweet tooth. I’ve grown up with them, but it wasn’t until recently that I really appreciated their flavor. Plus, I’m fueling local economy while showing my appreciation for farmers by purchasing their peaches, and we all know that’s a win-win.
