Christmas Candy Recipes: Easy Candy Recipes - Martha Stewart. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles. I’ve never liked chocolate chip cookies.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Go ahead and throw tomatoes at me if you’d like, but I don’t like ’em. They’re just a plain old cookie, after all, with a few studs of chocolate chips in them. They’re nothing special to me, unless you get some cookie dough-action before it meets its fate in the oven. Now you’re talkin’. I’d much rather drown my sorrows in a bowl of cookie dough than nibble a dozen “cookies” dipped in milk. I know there are plenty of cookie-dough-nay-sayers out there… you know, the salmonella scare and all . Chilled dough is rolled into 1-inch balls. Those chilled dough balls are dipped in chocolate and then placed onto waxed paper to set.

I dipped a few in Ghirardelli White Chocolate Bark and a few in the Chocolate version too. Oh yeah!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip

I realize this may get me shunned (especially in my hometown of Pittsburgh!) , but….I don’t like football. I don’t like to watch it, I never liked playing football with my friends, I don’t even like playing catch with a football. If there was one thing Mike could change about me, I’m pretty sure this would be it. I saw this recipe on Jessica’s blog and made it the very next day. *Note: Jessica also has variations of this dip on her blog. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip Ingredients:1/2 cup butter 1/3 cup brown sugar 1 8-ounce block of cream cheese, softened 3/4 to 1 cup powdered sugar (*to taste) 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips, plus extra for sprinklingDirections:In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.

Can I just say that I have died and gone to heaven. Lunch Lady Bars. Do you attend cookie exchanges this time of year?

Lunch Lady Bars

I’ve only ever attended a couple of them in my life, but every year, I tell myself that I’m either going to attend one or host one. Of course, this usually doesn’t happen. But I’m so excited because this year, I actually am attending one, and I couldn’t be more excited. My mind has been filled with cookie ideas, and I’ve been scouring cookbooks, trying to decide what I want to take.

There are about a million cookies I’d like to try, but guess what? This is yet another Pinterest find. Be forewarned, though – these babies are addictive. Named after cookie bars served in a high school cafeteria, these chocolate chip bars are soft, moist, and addictive! Ingredients 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 3/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup vegetable oil 1 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup granulated sugar 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 cup chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, or a mix of both Instructions Preheat the oven to 350F.
