Milk & Cookie Balls


Inspired by the coveted Oreo ball, made popular in our circle by a dear friend of mine (still waiting on that guest post), and looking at a tupperware container filled with chocolate chip cookies nearing the end of their shelf life, I came up with the Milk & Cookie Ball. 

Chocolate chip cookie crumbs, sweetened condensed milk, and melted chocolate...oh so rich, oh so simple, and oh so good!! 

The concept of crumbling up leftover desserts, binding them with something yummy, and dipping them in chocolate has become quite the rage. I mean, look at what Bakerella can do with a cake ball! Love her! 

So empty your cookie jars and get to it!

Milk & Cookie Balls
Chocolate chip cookies
Sweetened condensed milk
Chocolate chips or melting discs

Crush cookies using a food processor (or a good old fashioned rolling pin). Slowly add condensed milk to cookie crumbs until mixture becomes sticky and can be rolled into balls. Melt chocolate in microwave in 30 second increments, mixing regularly until smooth. Dip balls in melted chocolate and place on cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Allow chocolate to set. If you choose to place balls in refrigerator to set, bring back to room temp before serving. 





Enjoy!

  2. This is such a neat idea! I did the cake balls and found them to be overly sweet. So much so that they made my teeth hurt. These seem like they would be much better!
