My second attempt at holiday baking was a smash hit! I made…wait for it…Chocolate Covered Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls.
Mercy. They are tiny orbs of divinity.
First you whip up a batch of safe-to-eat cookie dough (made without eggs so you won’t get worms) and roll it into tiny little balls.
Then you put those balls in the fridge for a couple hours to chill. Once they’re nice and firm, melt a pot of chocolate (with a few tablespoons of shortening to smooth it out) and dip, dip away!
They look like homemade truffles and they taste even better. Really, whose favourite part of baking cookies isn’t eating the dough?
And here’s a little something to make you smile.
