It is a bit absurd for me but, yes, I am keeping it a secret.

I have gone through more than twenty variations of the formula in
comparison to the one printed on the back of the chocolate chip package.

I had to change four different parameters simultaneously for it to
begin to look like it was supposed to.

Any one with any kitchen experience or food science degree could do the
same, I'm not anything special in that department, the problem lies in
the utter lack of criteria of the Brazilian population in choosing a
product. If it is cheaper, it is purchased. It doesn't matter what it
looks like or how it was made or if it is going to make you sick etc.

So I am trying to weed out at least the lowest of home made cookers.

Re: Holy Chocolate Chunks!

When I was in the Army, I was sent "homemade" chocolate chip cookies on
a regular basis. I wrote a letter to the sender to get her recipe, only
to find out she was using Pillsbury ready-to-bake refrigerated dough! No
mixing, no measuring, just slice and bake. 😉

That is so nice. I'll bet she was sending a lot. No time to make a lot
of mess.

I was getting them weekly for a while, then she had to go back to
school. I also had amassed quite a collection of tupperware containers.
