Cookie Dough Dip! A Youtube Video!

Hello everyone! Tonight I had a study group over for my computer informational sciences (CIS) final tomorrow, and I wanted to make something yummy that everyone would enjoy, and that would be pretty easy to make. I ended up choosing to make something from my tasty treats board! The recipe itself came from a website called “Add a Pinch”. I’ll show you how to do it, and even give you my reactions in a fun YouTube video I made below!

 

 

Review: Oh my GOD! This dip is AMAZING! This is definitely my favorite thing that i’ve made over this whole project. I wouldn’t change a single thing when I make it again in the future. Everyone ate all of it at the study group get together, and the comment I heard most was that the best thing about it was the toffee chips!

Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Butterscotch Bird’s Nests

In honor of spring break quickly approaching, and my longing for warm breezy spring days, I decided to make a spring themed treat! A year or so ago I found this recipe from “The Curvy Carrot”, and thought it was too cute to pass up. I pinned this to my Tasty Treats board so I could save it for a rainy day (like today)!

The recipe looked pretty simple, and involved no baking whatsoever. All you need for ingredients are: 

1 tablespoon of unsalted butter, for greasing the muffin pan (I used pam)

6 ounces (1/2 bag) of semi-sweet chocolate chips

6 ounces (1/2 bag) of butterscotch chips

1 cup creamy peanut butter 

6 ounces (1/2 of a large bag) of chow mein noodles

36 mini Cadbury eggs or jelly beans

I started the process by spraying the muffin tin with pam spray to make sure the mixture wouldn’t stick once I attempted to remove them. Then in a large bowl I put the semi sweet chocolate chips and the butterscotch chips, and then I microwaved them in 30 second intervals, stirring in between. It only took two 30 second intervals for the chips to be completely melted.

I next added peanut butter to the mix. I decided to add chunky, but you could do creamy if you prefer. I stirred the peanut butter in with the chips until it too was completely melted.

Next came the chow mein noodles. I used a rubbed spatula and mixed them in till they were completely coated. Note: It is okay if some of them break as the mixture is thick.

Finally I scooped the mixture using a spoon into the muffin tins. This should make about 12 servings, depending on the size of your tin.

I put them in the fridge for about 30 minutes to let them harden, and I popped them out with a spoon easily. I then topped them with Whoppers Robin Eggs and served.

I brought these to a meeting I had tonight, and they were gone in a matter of minutes. They are so delicious, and have that nice mix of sweet and crunchy! I plan on making these again for Easter.

2-Minute Chocolate Chip Cookie For One

I was in the mood for something sweet, but I didn’t want to commit to making a whole lot of something. So when I found the recipe for a 2-minute chocolate chip cookie for one from Zoom Yummy after searching through my tasty treats board on Pinterest!

The recipe looked pretty simple, the ingredients you need are as follows:

  1. 2 tbsp (3O grams) unsalted butter,softened
  2. 1 1/2 tbsp (2O grams) white granulated sugar.
  3. 1 1/2 tbsp (2O grams) brown sugar.
  4. 2 tbsp (3Oml) beaten egg
  5. 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  6. 5 tbsp (60 grams) all purpose flour
  7. 1/4 tsp baking soda
  8. pinch salt
  9. 1/4 cup (40 grams) chocolate chips

I started by mixing the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar together in a cereal bowl.

After mixing those together I added the egg and vanilla and stirred everything together.

Next comes the flour, baking soda, and the salt. Mixing these together with a whisk was pretty difficult, because the mixture kept clumping inside. Maybe try using something other than a whisk to mix these together.

You add the chocolate chips and mix everything together!

The final step is to put the bowl in the microwave for 2 minutes, and then enjoy

Final Product

In my opinion, this was completely disgusting. I was so disappointed in how this turned out. Mine had the consistency of a biscuit cookie, and was very hard and crunchy. It definitely doesn’t compare to a real cookie at all, and I don’t plan on ever making this again. Be wary if you’re ever wanting to make this, I wouldn’t recommend it.
