Cookie Chips?????

This is actually the living proof I'm a geek...

I've seen a lot of recipes for "Inside-out chocolate chip cookies" or sometimes called "Reverse chocolate chip cookies", that refer to a chocolate dough with white chocolate chips. To me, in all my geekiness those are not really inside-out or reverse, to deserve that name a real inside-out CCC would have the dough transformed into the chips, and the chips transformed into the dough. Are you a bit confused? I don't blame you, but...

Meet the "Cookie Chips Chocolates"!

So yes, I've made cookie chips! Personally I think they're adorable and I was happy just staring at them, but was even happier when I folded them into melted chocolate. Oh yes!

I've made a chocolate chip cookie dough with the chips, put it into a pastry bag with a small round tip and then chipped away.

Here they are before baking.

And here they are allready baked and ready to dive into the melted chocolate.

Now this is what I'm talking about when I say "Inside-out"!


  • 110 gr (4 oz) butter room temperature
  • 6 tbs sugar
  • 6 tbs brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 180 gr (6 1/2 oz) flour
  • 1/4+1/8 tspn salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 250 gr (9 oz) chocolate of your choice (I used milk)

Beat butter and both sugars just until they come together. Don’t over-beat. Add the egg and beat just until incorporated. Mix together the flour, salt and baking powder and add to the batter. Stir just until blended and put into a pastry bag with a small round tip*.

Drop into a cookie sheet pulling up so the dough get a thin point, characteristic of the chips. Bake into a preheated 170ºC (325ºF) oven, for 5 minutes.

Let them cool while you melt the chocolate in the microwave or over a double boiler. Poor the chips over the chocolate and mix until they're all coated, being careful not to break them. Reserve some to decorate the top of the cookies. Drop by teaspoons onto a tray lined with plastic wrap, foil, silpat or baking paper. Decorate with 3 or 4 cookie chips and take to the fridge to harden.

* If you want to do this but don't want to bother doing the chips, you can just spread the dough with a spatula or the back of a spoon in a cookie sheet, bake and then cut or break into chunks.

Now look at this amazing discovering of mine: If you like your cookies crunchy leave them in the fridge, if you prefer them chewy, take them out! See I'm a geek, but I'm a clever one, lol!

Zita said...

Great idea... look like florentines, cookie chips are sooo sweet :)

Tanya said...

What an awesome idea! I love that cute little cookie dough chip! I'm not even sure if those chips would last long enough to be put in the chocolate.

The Stressed Baker said...

OMG! Those are amazing!!! I need to make them but they will definitely be as cute as yours! What tip did you use to get the chips that way?

Kevin said...

Cookie chips chocolates are a great idea! They look really good!

Susan/Wild Yeast said...

Very cute and original idea!

Lina said...

yes you are a clever geek indeed! haha I love your mini cookie dough chips! I've never even heard of inside out cookies before. What a wonderful creation!

A&N said...

These are SCRUMPTIOUS! OMG, I so HAVE to try these. Mebbe for A's birthday! Yay!

Veronica said...

Wow! How incredibly clever. I really like the picture of the cute little cookie chip.

Pumpkin said...

Those are so adorable! What a funny/cute idea!

Jenny said...

Ok, seriously the coolest recipe I'v seen in a long long time! That baby chip is awesome with the little smile! These have got to taste sooooo good!

morgana said...

Great idea!!!!! You're a genius. These are the perfect cookies for a chocolate lover ;-) and those cookie chips are soooooo cute. I think that a had the same reaction a have when a look at a baby: an automatic smile I can't get off of my face for a while.

En castellano, que se me da mucho mejor.
Qué idea más buena. Eres un genio, son las galletas perfectas para los amantes del chocolate. Me encanta la "vuelta de tuerca" que les has dado (¡viva la deconstrucción!) y los chip de galleta son tan monos que mi reacción al verlos ha sido la misma que tengo cuando veo un bebé: se me pone una sonrisa tonta en la cara que no me puedo quitar en un buen rato.

¡¡¡¡¡ ME ENCANTAN !!!!!! ¿Puedo copiarlas algún día?

Holy cow. Is there an award for most original idea ever? It seriously blows my mind. Up is now down and Superman is bad. This is insanity, but in a delicious way.

edinha said...

I loved these cookies :)

Sophie said...

Wow. So simple yet so creative...I honestly think these might actually beat chocolate chip cookies if they were to face off in a "whose cuter and yummier" contest :D.

Katrina said...

I just made these--told you I would! Oh My Goodness! So cute and fun and I can't wait to take them to friends tonight and share--as I've now had my fair share! ;)
Lots and lots of little cookies leftover, will have to freeze the little guys and make more another time. Absolutely delicious and although a bit of work with all the piping, FUN! A great holiday giveaway idea, too! Thanks so much. You are amazing.
(I'm about to work on the posting of these on my blog.)

Sharon said...

Those are some of the cutest things I've seen in a long time, not to mention how good they probably are. Kudos to your geekiness for bringing us such a fun treat!

Erika said...

How creative! I wish I could try one!

Ann said...

Wow, this is genius. I really need to taste this, like NOW. Kinda feel tortured looking at it. Was it as good as it looks? I may have to make these suckers.

Anonymous said...

Rita, you're a Genius! Will you marry me? I promise i'll do the laundry and clean-up after you.

So clever! :-)

Katrina said...

These really are SOOOOO GOOD. I made them today and LOVED them. They are addicting, so I took them to a get together with some friends and let them gobble them up. Everyone loved them.
You are on to something, Clumbsy Cookie!

Robin Sue said...

OK this is the most delicious thing I have seen all day. Those are sooooo cool. Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Wow! I've never seen that. How hard was it?

Clumbsy Cookie said...

Edinha- Obrigada e benvinda!

Sophie- Can you imagine the amount of judges that would volunteer for that kind of contest? Lol!

Katrina- Yours looks great too, I loved that you added pecans! Let's see what can we come yp for the leftover million little guys!

Sharon- Oh thank you, you're a creative mind yourself!

Erika- Sorry, they're all gone now. Katrina just made them, so maybe she still has some, lol!

Ann- Yes, make the little suckers. You'll probably use dark chocolate, and I'm sure they'll be as great!

Zen- Where's the ring?

Robin- Thank you! Your cake was really gorgeous, I love dulce de leche!

Dawn- They are not difficult at all, you just need a bit of patience for all the pipping! But it's worth it! Thank you for the nice words!
