Okay, I feel like I say this way too often, but oh my goodness--this is THE cookie (or at least right now). I recently gave you these: Molten Lava Chocolate Chip Cookies
I thought there could be nothing better and well, I LOVE these! What a treat! Then today, I tell you, I did it again and am in love all over again, for real this time. Last time it was just puppy love, a crush, let's say. But this, THIS time, it's forever, Baby! ; )
Now, after taking some of the best cookie dough, that would be this one, which to me is just The Ultimate, I went with the no-chill option and put these little delights in with about a pound of regular semi-sweet chocolate chip.
I really wasn't expecting to like these as much as I do--make that--did.
I put a big gob of dough in the ramekin, then added two of these babies to the top (three would be good, too!):
Then, I covered them with more dough. Oh!
I baked the babies for 13 minutes (last time I did 15 minutes and decided I wanted them just a tad more gooey).
These Mint Truffle Kisses are really good. But a warm, melty one--heaven. The cookie "dessert" is just a wonderful, perfect HOLIDAY treat. You could really bump them up with ice cream and such, but I just cut one open to see inside and ate a piece of it. DELICIOUS!
*Small disclaimer--I know I don't have to mention this, but I'm going to. Just for the pictures sake, I melted one truffle slightly and had it melt there in the center of the cookie before taking the picture. When I cut in to it, it wasn't actually oozing out like that (that's why I think three truffles would be better than two), but with the mint chips, there's definitely enough mint flavor. The cookie was just slightly warm. If you served them more warm and fresh from the oven, the truffles inside would be a bit more melty than mine was for the picture. And the cookie itself--perfect! Just the right amount of doneness/under doneness!
That's all, for now. But really--need there be more? I think not. I said I was "in love", but let's just call this a forbidden love, see I REALLY should NOT eat this. I gave four of them to my friend for her birthday (baked six), told Kevin to eat this one and stuck another in the freezer. I'm interested to see how well they freeze and thaw for another time.
