I’m a firm believer that chocolate solves everything and there’s never a time it’s not welcome. It’s comforting, makes you happy, it’s creamy, perfect and I find it hard to resist. It just makes everything better.
DoubleTree by Hilton figured that out too and welcome every guest to every DoubleTree with a warm homemade chocolate chip cookie upon check in. I love welcome drinks but sometimes I can take them or leave them (mostly take) but a warm chocolate chip cookie always hits the spot, especially after a long exhausting flight, a rough night on the tiles, as a quick snack before dinner, a sugar pick me up, or just because.
The good news is you don’t have to stay overnight to enjoy these warm beauties. You can drop into any DoubleTree hotel and buy a giant tin of them for £10 which is what I did and savoured every gooey chocolate chip and every crunchy nut with a glass of cold milk. Mmmmmm. And now the weather is getting colder and the nights darker these are the perfect treat to feast on while snuggled on the sofa watching TV in your jammies. Heaven.
DoubleTree hotels around the world offer guests different flavours of cookies so in London you may get a cookie with walnuts whereas in California it could be oats and cinnamon. It’s all part of the surprise and one I definitely want to indulge in further. Who’s with me?
The recipe for the cookies is 100% top secret but if you fancy enjoying some novelty treats DoubleTree chefs have created extravagant recipes using the cookies. I am IN LOVE with the DoubleTree cookie popcorn recipe created by Chef Dan Moore at DoubleTree by Hilton Asheville – Biltmore. Nice and healthy as you can imagine.
I love that DoubleTree differentiates itself from the other Hilton brands not with amenities such as super fast wifi, rooftop business centres or a particular bathroom product, but with cookies. It’s quirky and cute and oh so tasty. Get involved.
