Here I go again posting recipes. But since Christmas is only 9 days away, I wanted to share this extremely easy recipe for those of you looking to add to your Christmas cookie collection. We are having a cookie exchange at work and I signed up for Cookie Dough Truffles. They are basically chunks of cookie dough that are actually intended to be eaten as cookie dough (no eggs included). I figured there wouldn’t be anyone at work not excited about that. BUT, here is the kicker, instead of just making the dough into balls and dipping it in chocolate like I have in the past, I got a little more creative with the presentation this time.
The final result is…wait for it…Cookie-Shaped Cookie Dough on a Stick! (Sounds like MN State Fair material, if you ask me…)
First, here is the recipe for the dough:
1. 1 stick unsalted butter
2. 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4. 2 cups all-purpose flour (or maybe a little more, if needed)
5. 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
6. 1/2 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
7. 1-2 packages chocolate bark candy coating
After that, I dipped them in melted white baking chocolate (I also melted a few chocolate chips in with the dipping chocolate to add a tint of brown to look more like the color of real cookies). And lastly, I just wrapped them up and wrote on the sticks to make them look all nice and pretty!
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 cups flour
- 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
- 1-2 packages chocolate bark candy coating
- Mix butter and brown sugar with a mixer. Add vanilla. Gradually add flour and milk, alternately. Lastly, mix in chocolate chips. Once the dough is finished, lay out in about 1inch flat circles and insert sticks. Then, stick in freezer for about 20 minutes or until hardened. Once frozen, dip in melted chocolate and garnish as desired!
- I sprinkled chocolate chips after dipping to make them look like cookies, and wrapped them up individually with plastic baggies!
