What do you need for a scavenger hunt?
Your two most important resources will be access to a printer and printer paper. I personally love printing on white cardstock (this is my favorite cardstock brand.) I also like to laminate my products, like the chocolate chip cookie recipe will hold for a long time if you have a nicely laminated surface. If you do not have access to a printer, simply sent the project over to your local copy center or Staples printing services.
I an addition to paper and a printer, you will need scissors or a paper cutter to cut out the clues. Lastly, you will purchase cookie ingredients and baking supplies unless you already have them on hand. See the bottom of the post for the best chocolate chip cookie recipe and baking ingredients and supplies.

Can I make these chocolate chip cookies ahead?
Yes, this chewy chocolate chip cookies recipe is actually best if made ahead. That doesn’t mean you can’t whip up the recipe and immediately put the mixture in the oven. However, if you can let your mixed cookie dough chill for up to two hours before baking, your cookies will come out nice and fluffy texture. Chilling chocolate chip cookie dough solidifies the fat in the cookies. When baked, it actually prevents spread on a baking pan as the fat in chilled cookie dough takes longer to melt than room temperature fat.
