Whip It Up - Week 8

I can't believe it's over. Maddy and I had a lot of fun with this project.

Since it's the last week, Chef Maddy will do the honors. Take it away, Maddy!

Hi, I'm Maddy. My mom and I made Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites. When she makes chocolate chip cookies, I sneak into the batter when she's not looking. But then she tells me it's not safe because of the raw eggs. I think if she ate it all those years, and she's okay... well, maybe that explains a lot.

Anyway, my mom found this recipe for egg-less cookie dough that you mix up, chill in the refrigerator, then cover with more chocolate. These are easy to make, because you don't have to turn on the oven.

Here are the ingredients. I was so excited to make these we didn't get to take a picture of the ingredients. But we did take lots of other pictures.

1 stick butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk (we used fat-free)
2 cups flour
2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 package chocolate candy coating

Combine butter and brown sugar until blended. Add condensed milk until creamy. Add flour and mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips. Drop by spoonfuls onto a wax-paper lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate for abut an hour or until hard.

Melt candy coating in the microwave. You can either dip the whole ball in the chocolate or just brush it over the tops, like we did. Place in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes to set the chocolate.

Was it easy? Very easy. I'm 9 and I could do it. My mom did help a little.

Was it good? I said yum! Mom said holy cow. Mom says they're really rich, and taste just like cookie dough.

Would I make it again? Mom said these would be good for a pity party. I asked her what that was, and she said when you have a bad day and need chocolate.

Wow! What a treat! And you two look like you had a great time cooking. Maddy reminds me so much of Miss M. She and I love spending time in the kitchen together too. Thanks for the recipe!
