Oreo Stuffed Choco Chip Cookies


Yes… this happened.

My friend Ed posted a link to these cookies on Facebook and that is how I originally stumbled upon this magically, eye-popping, button bursting cookie. I wish I could take credit for such a glorious easy dessert but the originator is Picky Palate (http://picky-palate.com/2011/01/06/oreo-stuffed-chocolate-chip-cookies/ ). Kudos to her, that is for sure!

When i brought these cookies to work one of my bosses looked at them and said “that’s not fair” and walked away. He likes to pretend he wouldn’t eat them but I left them out when I left and they were all gone, so clearly someone got their hand stuck in the cookie jar!

Seriously people, this is a must make, not just for the yummy factors but also for the shock value. Eaters eyes literally bulge out of their head and their taste buds start doing jumping jacks in their mouths.

Keep in mind that you don’t have to follow Picky Palates exact recipe. If you have a cookie dough you like, you can use that as well!

Beware these are LARGE cookies J so no blaming me for your waistline!

Cake Monkey


So if you follow thatszogood, by now you’ve realized my obsession with all things dessert.  So when I say this is one of the top 5 best desserts I have ever consumed you know i mean business.

The dessert pictured is a Peanut Butter Marshmallow “cakewich” from a company called Cake Monkey. They don’t have their own store but they sell locally to places like Umami and Cabbage Patch, but of course they have a large array of desserts (often mini size) on their website www.cakemonkey.com

It starts with this hard chocolate shell which is only there to cage in the gooey pb and marshmallow, heavenly sandwiched in between the moistest yellow cake. The proportions in this perfect sandwich are so appropriate that by the end of your bites you realize you’ve had just the right amount of everything you could ever want.  

I wish I could eat one of Cake Monkey’s mini desserts every single day till the end of time. Seriously, check out their website. Maybe order some for your next party, whatever or whenever it may be!

LolliBakes


I hate this time of the year in the office. Why you ask? It’s because we get bombarded with gifts, except they are not gifts that you can enjoy for the long haul. They are gifts that you eat… all…. day…. long. I wish i was one of those people who had the ability to just smell the dessert and walk away. I need to eat every dessert that comes into my presence.

What you are looking at is a stick of a little bit of  heaven, I bet this is what angels eat for dessert.

It is from a company called Lollibakes, and it is a stick with a ball of cake on top covered in chocolate. This one (which was my second) is chocolate cake with a PB shell.

If you are ever looking for a fun dessert to bring to an event or a fun edible gift this is your first stop….

PB Cup Cookies


I love sweets and if I could eat dessert after every meal I would. This is why when I have people over I love to make dessert. By force feeding dessert onto my friends I feel less guilty about eating them and while also preventing having an abundance of dessert leftover for me and my roommate to gorge ourselves with.  

Last Sunday, like most Sundays, I had about 10 people over for dinner so I though “oh yay I can make dessert!” and that’s exactly what I did. I made my extremely delicious pb cup cookies, and I don’t think I heard one complaint. Some of the guys even made them into ice cream cookie sandwiches!

Mini PB Cup Cookies

Adapted from Mrs. Fields “Best Cookie Book Ever!”

Ingredients:

2 ½ cups flour

½ tsp. baking soda

1 cup (packed) dark brown sugar

½ cup white sugar

2 sticks (1 cup) butter – softened

2 eggs

2 tsps. Vanilla extract

Around 30 Mini Peanut Butter Cups  

Directions:

  • Preheat Oven to 300 degrees
  • Combine the flour and soda in a bowl and set aside.
  • In a bigger bowl mix together, using your electric mixer, the sugars (both white and dark brown) and the softened butter to form a grainy paste.
  • Next crack the eggs into a separate small bowl or cup to prevent damaged eggs and the vanilla extract. Add them to the sugar butter mixture and mix till combined.
  • Add the flour mixture little by little. With each addition of the flour mix well. Then once combined add a little more until all the flour mixture is gone.
  • Drop the dough, using a rounded tablespoon (or your hands like I do) onto an ungreased cookie sheet a couple inches apart.
  • Unwrap the reeses mini pb cups and push them into the middle of each cookie but not all the way to the bottom. Wrap the dough around the edges of the pb cups so you only see the top of the cups.

 

Before

  • Bake for 13 – 15 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown

Yields about 25-30 cookies depending on size.

After
