This Guy Got a Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Tattooed on His Leg

‘Mango’ is the nickname of a guy with his favorite cookie recipe tattooed on his leg, as spotted by a Reddit user

That’s one way to never, ever forget how to make your favorite cookies.

We’ve seen some strange tattoos out there, including one teen who got a McDonald’s receipt permanently inked on his arm.But this is one of our favorites. Reddit user Rudecarp met a quirky man named Mango on a breast cancer walk and took a photo of the tattoo emblazoned on his leg, which you can see below, courtesy of Rudecarp’s submission on Imgur:

Rudecarp was so enchanted by a man with a cookie recipe on his leg that he figured the cookies must be excellent and made them himself and confirmed that the cookies were indeed “delicious.”

We have a strong feeling that Mr. Mango got his tattoo when he was inebriated in some way and decided to just go with it and embrace the perfection of baked good instructions, permanently emblazoned on his skin.

Check out the recipe below and try it for yourself:

2 sticks of butter

3/4 cup of sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

2 1/4 cups of flour

3/4 cup of brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp baking powder

2 cups of chocolate chips

Bake at 350° for 12 minutes.
