Now that people have to stay home, the DobleTree by Hilton hotel chain has decided to unveil the recipe for its famous chocolate chip cookies so that people can bake them at home.

The recipe is said to have been created to please the chain’s VIP customers, and we’re not talking about a hyper-secret formula like Coca Cola’s.
The president of the chain, Shawn McAteer, expressed that these are difficult times for everyone, and while a cookie is not the solution to the problems we are facing, it can provide us with a little comfort while we wait for things to return to normal. from home.
“We expect families enjoy the pleasure of baking together throughout their time in the home, and we look forward to welcoming all our guests with a hot DoubleTree cookie when traveling resumes”
