For those that don't know, I help bake for church every month or so. We have a smaller church (about 100-125) that has snacks & coffees in the back for people to nibble on while listening to the sermon. Every month I make hundreds of cookies. I try to stick to some basic recipes (sugar, chocolate chip) and add a few different ones each time.
Next week I get to bake again. I wanted to try a new recipe and I thought that since I teach children's church tomorrow, I would try it out on them. When I teach, I bring a snack to
My new recipe is SUPER EASY since it starts with a mix. I purchased the Betty Crocker Double Chocolate Chunk cookie mix for about $2 at Wal-Mart. With the mix, you will just need one egg, 2 tablespoons of water and 1/4 cup of vegetable oil.
The batter looks like this:
Then stick an Oreo cookie on top of the batter and squish the batter:
Next, put more cookie dough batter on top:
Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until the cookies look done.
Since this was my first time, I didn't realize I would have to spread the cookie batter down over the Oreo cookie. I thought it would naturally melt down while baking. It did not and my Oreos were not completely covered.
The kids would eat them anyway but I wanted to do something fun with them since they looked kind of odd with the Oreo sticking out. I put two edible circle sprinkles on top (you can buy these at any craft store or bakery; I found mine at TJ Maxx).
They reminded me of chocolate monsters of some kind.
If I would have had Twizzlers or another type of red candy, I could have made a lizard tongue. Pretend my piece of paper is a type of edible candy:
Of course I had to try one to make sure it was good enough for the kids tomorrow!
YUM! This has been the best thing I have eaten in months. Seriously, it was delicious! My husband took a few to my father-in-law and he just called to say he loved them as well.
Next time I will make sure the batter covers the Oreo. I may also try to make these with sugar cookie mix instead of the double chocolate chip mix and then I will color the sugar cookie mix green to make them look more like monsters.
