Reeses S'mores Skillet – YUM!!

Just three delicious ingredients – butter, Reese's cups, and big, fluffy marshmallows – are all it takes to make this fast, easy, and incredibly mouthwatering dessert.

Just whip it up, dip in some graham crackers, and nom!!!


Directions

Step One: Place cast iron skillet in oven and preheat to 450°F.
Step Two: Butter all sides of pan with 1 tablespoon or so of butter, so marshmallows don't stick.
Step Three: Cover bottom of pan with unwrapped Reese's cups; follow with marshmallows cut in half, sticky side down.
Step Four: Bake 5-7 minutes, until marshmallows are golden brown. Keep a close eye, because they burn easily!

Let sit two minutes, then serve with graham crackers for dipping. Yum!!!

{Recipe adapted from Your Cup of Cake. Photos are hers.}

This would be gone in TWO SECONDS FLAT at my house – oh well, better make two!!! ;D (one for me and one for everyone else XD)

Who else is dying for a bite of this???

[Week 1] Monday & Friday - Rest Day Recipes (Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie)
You've got to love a training plan that starts off with a rest day! Since Tuesday will be my first long distance run, I want to make great post-run meals ahead of time since I'll probably be too tired once I get home. I'll be making a Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie since it has complex carbs AND protein. Plus its chocolate peanut butter...hello! Here’s the protein breakdown of my new favorite smoothie: 6 oz greek yogurt → 18 grams 3/4 cup skim milk → 6 grams 1 Tablespoon natural peanut butter → 4 grams The yogurt adds a ton of protein to the shake and should be pretty easy on your stomach, which can be sensitive after a run. Here's the recipe, enjoy! Ingredients: 1 large banana, peeled, sliced, and frozen 3 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder 6 oz Chobani 0% Greek Yogurt (or 2%, flavored or unflavored) 3/4 cup skim milk (or your favorite kind of nondairy or dairy milk) 1 Tablespoon honey, maple syrup, or agave 1 Tablespoon peanut butter (any kind you like) Directions: Put all of the ingredients into the blender, in the order listed, and blend on high until thick and smooth. I would start with only 2 Tablespoons of cocoa powder, blend, and then add 1 more for a stronger chocolate taste. You may need to stop and stir/scrape down the sides of the blender a few times. Drizzle glass with 1 teaspoon of chocolate syrup (optional) and enjoy! If you prefer a less sweet smoothie, you may leave out the honey. Add more peanut butter for a stronger peanut butter taste. Add more milk to make the smoothie thinner, if desired. Add 1 cup of your favorite greens for added nutrition.

14 Mind-blowing Dessert Lasagnas!
I guess these people never got the memo about lasagna being a dinner food – and oh man, am I glad they didn't. These innovative kitchen wizards have turned a saucy Italian cheesefest into a gourmet dessert. This is a food trend that I have NO doubt we'll be seeing soon on upscale dessert menus around the world. It's hip, it's totally different, and it's just the right amount of weird to tickle the imagination. See what you think – which one of these fantastical desserts would you most like to try? (I've tried to give credit where credit is due. All the recipes are linked below; just click on the word "Recipe." Photos belong to respective owners.) :) Chocolate Lasagna Brownies, chocolate pudding, and Oreos – oh my! Add some whipped cream, and you've got a lasagna. (I never, ever thought I would EVER say that sentence.) Recipe by Rachel Schultz, A Household Almanac Apple Pie Lasagna Let me be clear: this is not your grandmother's apple pie. Oh sure, it's got apples, cinnamon, and sugar – but it's also got caramel cream cheese filling, Heath bar toffee bites, and a touch of maple syrup. I have only one word: WANT. Recipe by Beyond Frosting Pumpkin Pie Dessert Lasagna I don't know if they necessarily needed to specify that this was a "dessert lasagna" – I think that's pretty clear from the whole "pumpkin pie" part. But I digress. We're talking pumpkin, Cool Whip, pumpkin spice chips (which exist, apparently!?) and chopped pecans. It might be 91 degrees out today, but suddenly I'm feeling a little autumnal! Recipe by The Cookie Rookie, inspired by Beyond Frosting (who is apparently our dessert lasagna MVP!) S'mores Lasagna And speaking of Beyond Frosting, she's also responsible for this dare-I-say GORGEOUS creation topped with gooey toasted marshmallows. S'mores Lasagna may be an improvement on the already impossibly wonderful campfire dessert, because it's got two types of graham cracker (original AND chocolate), marshmallow fluff, whipped cream, and – for the mess-haters among us – you can eat it with a fork. Recipe by Julianne Bayer of Beyond Frosting (the dessert lasagna goddess herself. soon we'll all be wearing t-shirts with her face on it.) Brownie Brittle Strawberry Lasagna Before we get too carried away in our decadence, Julianne (yep, we're on a first name basis now) has whipped up a lighter version of dessert lasagna featuring a cheesecake filling, dark chocolate pudding, and plenty of strawberries. See? It's got fruit! It's obviously healthy. Yet again, recipe by my idol, Julianne Bayer of Beyond Frosting Nutella Cheesecake Lasagna Okay, so maybe the photography skills are a little lacking on this one, but the concept is so flawless that I had to include it. Nutella and cheesecake, married into one perfect lasagna that is then dusted with brownie mix and chocolate chips. I can't really explain how much I'm salivating right now. (Sorry for that wonderful image.) Recipe by Modern Christian Homemaker Paleo Chocolate Lasagna Eating clean? Don't worry! We've still found the perfect dessert lasagna for you. Interesting ingredients in this one include coconut palm sugar, almond butter, apple cider vinegar, and shredded zucchini. I won't pretend to understand how it all works, but I will trust the author when she says it's delicious. Maybe. Recipe by Vanessa Barejas of Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind (which is an awesome name for a blog) Fabulous Fruit Lasagna Whoa, a dessert lasagna that actually uses noodles! I bet you were wondering when one of these was gonna show up. This lasagna is a delightful conglomeration of fresh berries, mascarpone and ricotta cheeses, brown sugar, nutmeg, cloves, and a pinch of chili powder. Not what I was expecting! It can also be made, the author suggests, with chocolate pasta. Recipe by F.H. Browne, posted on Just a Pinch Chocolate Toast Crunch Lasagna Did you know that Cinnamon Toast Crunch has a chocolaty cousin? Chocolate Toast Crunch adds a special, well, crunchiness to this dessert lasagna. Its creamy filling has a hint of almond flavor. Mmm. Recipe by Cheeky Kitchen, posted on Tablespoon Frozen Snickers Peanut Butter Lasagna It's been pretty hot out, so why not stick your dessert lasagna in the freezer? Dry roasted peanuts, caramel sauce, and little pieces of Snickers? This is exactly what I want to be eating right now. Recipe by Not Your Momma's Cookie Oreo Pumpkin Lasagna Maybe you can't get enough of dessert lasagnas. Maybe you want to try more than one of them. Why not do it at the same time? This recipe is a combination of pumpkin pie and Oreo dessert lasagnas – and I can't think of a single reason it wouldn't be delicious. Recipe by Kitchen Nostalgia Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Lasagna But come on guys, let's be real: this is the dessert lasagna you've been waiting for. Layers of creamy and chocolatey deliciousness topped with mini Reese's cups? Game over. Recipe by Marty's Musings Chocolate Candy Lasagna This take on chocolate lasagna tops it off with yummy and colorful crushed M&Ms! And then you have your choice between caramel and hot fudge drizzle toppings. But I say, Vinglers... why not both? Recipe by Princess Pinky Girl (yes, that is her real name) Chocolate Lasagna 2.0 And finally, we've got one last spin on chocolate lasagna from Center Cut Cook. It features a thick Oreo crust, a sweet whipped cream cheese filling, chocolate pudding, and lots of tiny chocolate chips. I think the width of the crust layer and the crunchiness of the mini-chips set it apart from other versions! Recipe by Center Cut Cook Which one of these crazy creations are you trying first? For more recipes, dessert and otherwise, be sure to follow my Cooking collection :) @jlee37 @buddyesd @danidee @TerrecaRiley @LizArnone @alywoah – can you BELIEVE these?!?!?
Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bites ♥ – Sally's Baking Addiction
Oh my goodness gracious I need these in front of me RIGHT NOW. I'm obsessed. Those adorably tiny chocolate chips? And sweet caramel goodness? And Oreo cookie crust?! And CHEESECAKE, for Pete's sake?!? It just really couldn't be any better, dessert-wise. Sally's Baking Addiction, I salute you for creating this incredible little treat that's sure to be the reason I gain 300 pounds over the next month. ♥ To make your own batch of these decadent little treats, you will need: 18 whole Oreos (Double Stuf or regular) 1/4 cup (60g) unsalted butter, melted 16 oz (448g) full-fat cream cheese, softened to room temperature 3/4 cup (150g) granulated sugar 1/4 cup (60g) yogurt (you can also substitute sour cream) 2 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup (180g) mini semi-sweet chocolate chips homemade salted caramel sauce (you can find the recipe here!) Here's what you do! 1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line two cupcake pans with 18 paper or aluminum cupcake liners. 2. Make the crust: Use a food processor to reduce Oreos into a fine, crumbly texture. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine cookie crumbs and melted butter. Spoon one heaping tablespoon of the mixture into each liner, then press down firmly and uniformly with fingers. You should have enough for 16-18 liners. Bake for 5 minutes and allow to cool while you make the filling. 3. Make the filling: In a large mixing bowl, use an electric beater to beat the cream cheese on medium speed until smooth. Add sugar and yogurt, and beat to combined. Turn mixer down to low speed and add eggs one at a time. Finally, beat in vanilla and mini chocolate chips. Remember to scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula as needed! 4. Use a spoon to fill cupcake molds with batter until almost full. Bake for 20-23 minutes. When you remove the cheesecakes from the oven, their centers will still be slightly jiggly and they may have inflated a bit. That's all perfectly normal. Allow to cool at room temperature for an hour. 5. After they've cooled at room temp, place the cheesecakes in the fridge and allow to chill another two hours. Top with salted caramel and additional mini-chips just before serving. Note: You can store cheesecakes in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Store cheesecakes (without caramel) in the freezer for up to 2 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Let me know if you make these!! :D I know they're top priority on my To Bake list. Thanks again to Sally's Baking Addiction – all photos and ideas are hers! Happy baking, Vinglers :) Update: Super-awesome Vingler @PikaPixie made a great card showing her experience making these delicious treats! Check it out here for photos :)
6 điều bạn cần biết trước khi du lịch đến London
Khi du lịch đến London, để chuyến đi trọn vẹn hơn và không vướng vào những rắc rối không đáng có du khách nên nhớ một vài lưu ý như: không bắt chuyện với người địa phương khi họ đang bận, đừng nên đi tàu điện ngầm vào giờ cao điểm, luôn đứng ở bên trái,… Là thủ đô xinh đẹp của nước Anh, London là điểm đến mơ ước của nhiều tín đồ du lịch. Khám phá thành phố, du khách sẽ được chiêm ngưỡng hình ảnh đồng hồ Big Ben biểu tượng, cung điện Buckingham hay Westminster tuyệt đẹp, cây cầu Tháp nổi tiếng,.... Tuy nhiên vì London cũng là nơi có khá nhiều quy tắc và luật lệ. Do đó để chuyến đi được trọn vẹn và thuận lợi nhất, đừng quên note lại 6 điều bạn cần biết trước khi du lịch đến London dưới đây nhé! >>> china airlines booking 1. Đừng bắt chuyện với người địa phương khi họ đang bận Nếu bạn là một người từng tìm hiểu về văn hoá và con người Anh, bạn sẽ biết người dân địa phương ở đất nước này là tuýp người rất truyền thống. Họ thường không thích phải nói chuyện với những người lạ khi đang bận việc. Chính vì thế khi du lịch tại London nếu bạn muốn bắt chuyện với người địa phương hãy nhớ tuỳ vào từng trường hợp nhé. Chẳng hạn, nếu thấy họ đang đọc sách trên tàu điện ngầm, hãy lịch sự đừng làm phiền họ. Thay vào đó, bạn có thể bắt chuyện với một vài người Anh khi họ đang ngồi nhâm nhi đồ uống trong quán bar. Người London rất thân thiện nhưng họ sẽ không muốn trò chuyện với những người lạ khi đang bận 2. Không đi tàu điện ngầm trong giờ cao điểm Tàu điện ngầm là phương tiện giao thông công cộng quen thuộc của người London. Khoảng thời gian từ 7h30 – 9h30 và 17h – 19h cũng là những khung giờ cao điểm nhất của tàu điện ngầm khi lượng người sử dụng vô cùng đông đúc. Do đó, nếu là du khách bạn có thể hạn chế đi tàu điện ngầm vào lúc này để không rơi vào tình trạng chen chúc. Hoặc nếu cần đi tàu điện ngầm, hãy nhớ đừng mang quá nhiều hành lý, không chỉ vì khó di chuyển mà điều này còn có thể làm ảnh hưởng đến những người khác. Trong những khung giờ cao điểm, tàu điện ngầm ở London vô cùng đông đúc 3. Đừng chụp ảnh trên đường hoặc chỗ có nhiều người đi lại Không chỉ ở London, đây còn là một trong những lưu ý mà du khách nên nhớ dù bạn dừng chân ở bất kỳ điểm đến nào. Bởi việc dừng lại chụp ảnh giữa đường hoặc những khu vực đông người chính là bạn đã vô tình gây cản trở đến việc di chuyển của nhiều người khác. Chưa kể, điều này hoàn toàn có thể dẫn đến việc bạn bị té ngã hay bị thương nữa đấy nhé. Ở London, một vài điểm bạn không nên đứng lại chụp hình có thể kể đến như: đường Oxford, hệ thống tàu điện ngầm,… >>> hãng máy bay China Airlines Ở London, bạn có thể tìm thấy rất nhiều điểm chụp hình đẹp nhưng nhớ đừng gây cản trở đến những người khác nhé! 4. Đứng bên trái Thủ đô nước Anh cũng là một trong những nơi có một số quy tắc ngầm dành cho tất cả mọi người, kể cả các du khách. Và một trong số đó là việc luôn luôn đứng ở bên phải, đi ở bên trái. Cụ thể hơn, trong thang máy hay tàu điện ngầm, người ta thường đứng về phía bên phải, còn bên trái là nơi dành để đi lại. Khi du lịch tại đây, hãy tìm hiểu trước điều này bởi nếu không tuân thủ bạn hoàn toàn có thể phải nhận lấy những ánh mắt khó chịu từ người khác. Người London thường có xu hướng đứng bên tay phải và nhường bên trái cho những ai cần di chuyển nhanh hơn Ngoài ra, theo kinh nghiệm của nhiều du khách, việc đi đứng tại nhiều nơi có thể được xem là những quy tắc ứng xử ngầm và nó không hề có các quy định riêng. Do đó, để dễ hoà nhập và không phạm phải các sai lầm, khi du lịch bạn có thể chú ý quan sát cách cư xử của người dân địa phương và làm theo nhé! 5. Đừng đến trễ Người London rất lịch sự và văn minh, do đó việc đúng hẹn cũng là một trong những quy tắc bắt buộc của họ. Khi du lịch tại đây, nếu bạn được một người địa phương mời tới nhà dùng bữa hoặc bạn đặt tour tham quan, đặt bàn ăn tại nhà hàng hãy nhớ tuân thủ điều này nhé! Luôn đúng hẹn là một trong những quy tắc bắt buộc đối với người London 6. Các quy tắc ứng xử Khi trò chuyện cùng người London, bạn sẽ nhận thấy họ là những con người vô cùng lịch thiệp. Xin vui lòng hay cảm ơn bạn đều là những câu nói rất phổ biến của họ. Chính vì thế, khi nói chuyện cùng người dân địa phương bạn cũng đừng quên đáp lại một cách thật lịch sự và nói lời cảm ơn nhé. Ngoài ra, hãy nhớ tuân thủ quy tắc xếp hàng ở Anh, bất kể là lúc bạn mua vé cho một chương trình, mua hàng ở siêu thị hay lên tàu điện ngầm. Văn hoá xếp hàng của người London được thể hiện ở mọi lúc, mọi nơi Thủ đô nước Anh là nơi có khá nhiều quy định và luật lệ. Đặc biệt, người dân thành phố là những người sống rất văn minh và lịch sự. Do đó tìm hiểu trước các phong tục hay văn hoá ở đây luôn là điều cần thiết để có chuyến đi trọn vẹn và thuận lợi hơn. Để được hỗ trợ book vé máy bay đi London nhanh chóng, bạn cũng đừng quên liên hệ sớm đến các văn phòng China Airlines tại Việt Nam gần nhất nhé!
10 tips for healthy eating
Unlike what you can imagine, having a balanced diet is not such a difficult task. You need to follow three basic rules: consume variety, with quality and moderation. This is possible with discipline and awareness of what is really needed for your body. See the tips! Eat fresh foods Fresh or minimally processed foods, of vegetable origin, are the basis of a balanced diet. Include on the menu: beans, nuts, tubers, grains, fruits, vegetables and greens. Avoid excess salt, sugar, oils and fats Use salt, sugar, oils and fats in small amounts. Excessive sugar consumption contributes to obesity; the improper use of salt, oils and fats can increase the risk of high blood pressure and heart disease. Avoid ultra-processed foods The natural manufacturing process for ready-made foods generally includes high amounts of salt, sugar, oils and fats. In addition, they also bring other substances for industrial use and synthesized in the laboratory from sources such as oil and coal, which do not favor a balanced diet. So, avoid consuming foods like: chips stuffed cookies cake mix instant noodles powder soup ready seasoning  soft drinks Consume functional foods Functional foods are those that help prevent or reduce the risk of some diseases. Soy and fish, for example, help to reduce bad cholesterol; chestnuts, almonds, walnuts, onions and garlic, help the immune system; cabbage, cabbage and broccoli can protect against some types of cancer. Include fiber in your diet Studies indicate that fiber-rich foods, such as brown rice, help reduce the risk of some types of cancer and cardiovascular disease. In addition, they promote satiety and help control body weight. Make a weekly menu Create a weekly plan with the week's menu. This will help to organize food throughout the days and avoid the consumption of ready-made and ultra-processed foods. Make grocery list With the weekly plan in hand, choose a day of the week to go to the fair and the supermarket. Make a shopping list to help you not include items in the cart that will not contribute to your health. Have a balanced breakfast Your healthy choices start in the morning with a breakfast consisting of foods such as whole grain bread, cereals, tapioca, egg, yogurt, cheese and fruit. In addition to nourishing the body, they will give you the energy you need to start the day in a good mood. Eat intermediate meals Eating every three hours favors the proper functioning of the intestine. Include healthy food such as fresh fruit, plain yogurt, nuts and walnuts in between meals. Mindfulness when eating Try to focus while eating your meals. Eating while watching TV or accessing your cell phone can make you consume more than necessary. Also, use that moment to feel the texture and flavor of the food and enjoy each bite. Conclusion Healthy eating should prioritize fresh or minimally processed foods As we have seen, the basis of healthy eating is the proper choice of foods and ingredients. Avoiding ultra-processed foods as much as possible and opting for food in its most natural form, respecting the regions and seasons of production and harvesting, is fundamental. Look for small producers in your region to buy your food. Make at home, as much as you can, the preparation of your meals. You will notice that, in addition to being healthier, there is nothing more delicious than food that tastes like home. Value the food you eat, because then you will be valuing your body and your health. “You are what you eat”, have you heard that phrase? So, review your eating habits to build a healthier and more positive relationship with food. You will gain in disposition, energy, quality of life and, we have no doubt, taste.
11 Pancakes You MUST Try Before You Die
OH GOD YES. Looking at these pictures... makes me feel things. In the part of my brain that I'm pretty sure is usually reserved for hot guys with abs. Yeah, I'm pretty sure my attraction to these pancakes is inappropriate. But just look at them, people. Have you ever seen anything more beautiful? A life without these pancakes... might not be worth living. (JOKE ALERT. LIFE WITHOUT PANCAKES IS JUST FINE PLEASE DON'T TAKE THIS THE WRONG WAY AAHHHHHH) Peanut Butter Cup Pancakes First up is this mind-blowing creation from Spicy Southern Kitchen. Created especially for her daughter's birthday, these peanut butter-infused pancakes have mini peanut butter cups in the batter, and are topped with chocolate sauce and peanut butter whipped cream. There's no way you could feel sad while eating these (unless you have a severe peanut allergy). Scroll to see additional images! Double Stuffed Oreo Pancakes While we're visiting the Spicy Southern Kitchen, it would be remiss not to include the pancakes she created for her daughter's previous birthday. That's right: Double Stuffed Oreo pancakes!! Rich, chocolatey pancakes stuffed with thick Oreo whipped cream. I have just one word for these: uunnnnngggggghhhhh. Cake Batter Pancakes Maybe chocolate isn't your thing. You know, because you're an evil dictator or a mass murderer. That's fine. Try these sweet, mouthwatering Cake Batter pancakes by The Girl Who Ate Everything. Cake batter-flavored pancakes topped with a vanilla glaze and colorful rainbow sprinkles are exactly what you need to bring some joy to your sad, chocolate-less life. S'mores Pancakes Vivian & Me has made all your dreams come true with these amazing s'mores pancakes, packed with chocolate chips and slathered with marshmallow fluff. They look, in a word, amazeballs. I'm also quite partial to the version by We Are Not Martha (see last picture), which are absolutely slathered in chocolate. Included here as an honorable mention. When I make these, I'll probably end up making some kind of hybrid of the two recipes. Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Pancakes This is not fair. It is not fair that these pancakes exist, and I'm on a diet. The swirly cinnamon goodness and warm glaze is almost too much to handle. Pixelated Crumb, who brought these beauties into the world, calls them "hands down the most extraordinary pancakes I have ever had." I don't doubt her. Strawberry Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes It's fruit! It's healthy!! Right?? These look like they jumped out of Martha Stewart's kitchen and onto your breakfast table. With homemade strawberry syrup, delicate lemon flavor, and fragrant poppy seeds, you can't go wrong with this beautiful creation by La Creme de la Crumb. Double Chocolate Pancakes If you really, really want dessert for breakfast, then you'd better go with these decadent Double Chocolate pancakes by Bakerella. The cakes, the sauce, even the GARNISH for Pete's sake is chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. YUM. You could also lighten them up by skipping the sauce and garnishing with fresh berries, but where's the fun in that? Lucky Charms Pancakes And now for something completely different. That's right; Lucky Charms pancakes. With marshmallows in the cakes as well as on top! Now THAT'S magically delicious. Perfect for St. Patrick's Day, or just I'm-An-Adult-I-Eat-What-I-Want Day. Get the recipe from Betty Crocker. Apple Pie Pancakes with Vanilla Maple Syrup It wasn't long until somebody brought the apple into this. After bananas, apples and cinnamon might be the next go-to flavor combination for pancakes. You're in luck; these pancakes apparently taste exactly like apple pie. And topped with vanilla maple syrup? Forget it. Fall pancake heaven. Thank you, Averie Cooks. Mint Chocolate Chip Pancakes ANOTHER green pancake? I thought those were once in a lifetime. But no – introducing Mint Chocolate Chip pancakes by the... interestingly named Caramel Potatoes (who names these blogs?)! With just the right touch of mint and yummy mini chocolate morsels, you're sure to love these despite their intimidating color. Breakfast Pigs In A Blanket On A Stick Oh god. Now for the motherlode. I can't stop thinking about these. And I WON'T stop thinking about these, I know, until I try making them myself. They're griddled breakfast sausages, dipped in pancake batter and deep fried. Then dunked in maple syrup and CONSUMED RAVENOUSLY. Mrs. Schwartz's Kitchen has really outdone itself on this one. Aaaaand that, my friends, concludes the list of pancakes you must try before you die. Although if you eat all of these on a regular basis, you might do just that. If you try any of the recipes, be sure to let me know how it turns out :) and snap a pic and make your own card, so we can all drool in jealousy!! XD
Chocolate Chip (Perfectly Safe!) Cookie Dough Truffles
About two weeks ago, @vegantraveler posted the most hilarious card in her Vegan Laughs that really got me thinking. It had a picture of a vegan baker licking cake batter off a mixing whisk and bragging about how vegans get to eat all the batter they want! (Check it out over here: http://www.vingle.net/posts/586948-Why-I-love-Vegan-Baking) And it's true! While admittedly, I haven't been vegan or vegetarian in years (gasp), I do still eat vegan and vegetarian foods regularly and appreciate the added safety in plant-based recipes. With no egg, no meat, and no dairy, there's less risk of foodborne illnesses and a much longer shelf life. (It's also perfect in a potluck situation when you know it's going to be left out for a long time!) With that being said, you can share and enjoy these cookie dough truffles (made with vegan cookie dough) without all of the concern that usually comes along with eating raw dough. One of my sister's favorite activities to do each holiday season is make a huge batch of vegan truffles for friends, and this is certainly our most favorite! --------------------------------------------------------------- Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt 1 cup (2 sticks) vegan butter or margarine, room temperature 3/4 cup granulated sugar 3/4 cup packed brown sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/3 cup soy or almond milk 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips 14 ounces of meltable chocolate (Ghiradelli and Godiva both make vegan melting chocolate, but other natural food brands do too.) 1. Beat butter and sugars and in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add cream and vanilla. Stir in flour and salt and mix on low speed (or by hand) until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips. 2. Cover and chill dough for 1 hour. 3. When dough is firm enough to handle (it may help to lightly flour your hands), form dough into 1" balls and arrange on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Place sheets in freezer and let chill for 30 minutes. 4. Melt chocolate candy coating in a double boiler or in microwave according to package directions. Using forks or a dipping tool, dip cookie balls into candy coating to cover. Tap fork on side of pan to remove any excess coating, and return to waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Chill until set. Store, chilled, in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
