Chocolate Chip Cookies With A Little Surprise + Pinterest

March 9, 2012 · 41 comments

Time for some milk and cookies….or should I say, time for some almond milk and cookies!  These chocolate chip cookies are not like the normal cookie we know and love.  There is a surprise in the center of each yummy cookie!

I had to travel to Bristol Virgina last Friday for work, the drive up from Charlotte was seriously AMAZING!!!  I traveled through Boone, Blowing Rock, Roan Mountain and many other beautiful sites.  When I completed my audit for work, I was in the parking lot and guess who was there?  Girl Scouts!  Yup, that was dangerous.  So I asked if I could buy some in the parking lot, they were heading into the location to set up shop.  I couldn’t wait for my Do-Si-Dos and Samoas….I  needed them NOW!  A little bit about me, I am so not patient!  So I had two yummy boxes in my car, ready to devour when I got home!

Saturday morning I woke up with two recipe ideas, one a recipe I would create, and one that would be a *SplurgeMoment* that we all deserve!  If you missed the recipe I created, you can take a look…or drool a bit at the Kale Chips, Roasted Garlic, and Parmesan Swirled Egg Bread.  The *SplurgeMoment* what is it?  Chocolate chip cookie dough wrapped around Samoas cookie….OH YES I DID!  I know I could make Samoas, but I like supporting the Girl Scouts, they deserve it!!!

There really is no recipe to post today, I used the chocolate chip cookie recipe on the back of the semi sweet chocolate chips package. Then just let yourself get REALLY messy, use a spoon to help put the dough around the Samoas cookie. They will make bigger than normal cookies, which is why they are *SplurgeMoment* cookies!

I am not a huge chocolate lover, so make some with just the dough, without chocolate chips.  I think they are better with the chocolate chips, but really delicious either way!  We also put a Do-Si-Dos in the center, so really you could put any of your favorite Girl Scout cookies in the center.  AND what a fun treat to make with your kids, I mean what kid wouldn’t want to get messy right?

Are you wondering about these beautiful pictures?  They are pictures my Sister created with my Niece, they are her cute little foot and hand.  My sister found the idea on Pinterest, such a great idea!

What is your favorite Girl Scout cookie?

Until next time, Come on in, Have a seat,

Hugs, Terra

    Loved your kale parmesan bread and pinned it (it got a lot of repins – did you see?) We’re following each other already :) My favorite were the Samoas, but I don’t buy them anymore because my husband can’t eat them and I don’t need a whole box of Samoas! 

    • Terra

      I did see, thank you so much for pinning my kale bread!! I had to make sure we were following each other:-)  My friend use to freeze her Girl Scout cookies, a perfect idea if you don’t want to eat them all:-) Thank you so much, Hugs, Terra

    My sister lives in VA and I’m constantly jealous of the beautiful countryside — especially at this time of year.  Oh, goodness.  Chocolate chip cookies are a favorite but have never had them with any kind of filling. Decadent!
