Here’s how you make a chocolate chip cookie in Minecraft:
With your BARE HAND, beat the shit out of a tree. Make a crafting table. Use that to make some sticks and then a wooden pickaxe. Use the wooden pickaxe to break some stone. Use a stick and some stone to make a stone pickaxe and use more stone to make an oven. Mine a bunch of stone until you find some with pale brown bits. That’s iron ore. Break that to bits. Also, look for stone with black bits; that’s coal; also break that to bits and take it all back to your oven. Use the iron ore and coal to make iron ingots. Use iron ingots and a stick to make an iron pickaxe and, if you’re doing monsters, a sword. But mostly make a hoe.
Take the hoe and tap a bunch of grass. It’ll give up seed. Plant the seed in the hoed-up ground. Go do something else for a couple of hours.
Oh, I know! Go beat the shit out of some red flowers and some yellow flowers, and then swim out to sea and beat the shit out of some squid and take their ink sacs.
Go back to your planted seeds and see if it’s turned dark yellow with dark brown tips. If it has, that’s wheat. With your bare hand, beat the shit out of it and collect the wheat and seed and plant the seed.
On your crafting table, make the red flowers into red dye and the yellow flowers into yellow dye. Make the red and yellow dye into orange dye.
Combine the orange dye and the squid ink sacs into cocoa beans. I am not making this up.
Wheat plus cocoa beans make a chocolate chip cookie.

Yeah, I got the recipe off the back of the chocolate chip bag, what of it? That’s the recipe I use. No squids were harmed in the making of this recipe.
