Ok, this has got to stop! All my last posts are about chocolate chip cookies or chocolate chip cookie related. Enough allready, don't you think?
I'll stop but as for this post I'm sticking with them, or at least making sticks out of them!
No recipe today, just a quick idea for your weekend. A while ago I made Banana filled chocolate chip cookies and had a bit of cookie dough left. Instead of opening a new banana I made these. They are very easy and you can do them with almost any chocolate chip cookie recipe. CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE STICKS
- A chocolate chip cookie recipe (look here for ideas)
Make your dough according to your recipe. It's better to use a recipe that makes a soft dough, so it's easier to spread. Spread on a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silpad, with the help of an off set spatula (if you don't have one, a normal spatula, a knife or even the back of a spoon can help). Bake as you would your cookies and when they're golden brown take them out of the oven. They'll be soft and that's how you want them. Immediatly cut stripes of the dough at the lenght and wideness you prefer. If you're using a silpad remove the baked huge cookie to a cutting board before cutting, so you don't cut your silpad (those things are expensive!), but work fast, because this way they'll cool faster and also harden faster, making it difficult to cut even stripes or sticks. Let them cool and harden and munch away.Some ideas to use the sticks:
- Eat as they are (no probelm with that!)
- Use to stir coffee, tea or hot chocolate
- Dip in chocolate ganache
- Dip in peanut butter
- Put on a tall jar and give as a gift
- Make chocolate roses and use the sticks as their stems
- Stick a marshmallow in one of the sides (maybe my favourite use)
Have a great weekend people! And stick arround!
