Cookie Chips Chocolates for National Chocolate Chip Day

DSCF7725

While thinking about just how to “celebrate” National Chocolate Chip Day (Sunday, May 15), I was reminded of these fantastic Cookie Chips Chocolates that I made almost 3 years ago after seeing and hearing about their creation on Rita’s now quiet, but still readable blog, Clumbsy Cookie.  Sure miss her blog but it’s a good thing we’re friends on Facebook and still say hi and stuff once in a while. ;)

Rita had the most brilliant idea to make little, bitty cookies the size of chocolate chips.  Then enrobe them in chocolate—therefore, making Cookie Chips Chocolates.  Not long after she posted about them, I just HAD to make them.  They are so fun, so good and so worth it!  (Your hand will tire from piping out the cookie dough in a piping bag fitted with a small round tip, but the recipe will make millions of fun little cookies. (If I recall, the recipe made three sheets full like this one.  Make the cookies and use what you need to, then freeze the rest for use another time.  (Rita has the simple cookie recipe on her blog at the link, I don’t think you could just use any cookie recipe as she perfected these so they don’t spread and stay in their perfect little chip shape.)

I made some with the “plain” cookie dough, but I also made some with ground pecans in the dough as well as pecans throughout the chocolate and sprinkled on top.  I’m telling you, these candies are just terrific.

You know you’re dying with the cuteness and deliciousness of seeing these.  They would make such a fun gift all bundled up with cute wrapping and ribbons.  That’s it, I’ve convinced myself to make them again very soon.  I even have another idea.  Stay tuned!

Doesn’t matter what kind—go have yourself some chocolate chips today—or some Cookie Chips Chocolates, you cannot go wrong with either!

OMG! This such a great idea! It's an inside out chocolate chip cookie!! BTW, why did Rita stop blogging?? She's definitely still creating, as demonstrated by these awesome treats, and your awesome and mouth-watering execution of them :)

Lisa--Rita came up with these inside out ccc's 3 years ago. I think she is just super busy with life/work, etc. that blogging has taken by the wayside. sigh
Her blog is/was one of my favorites!

These look so good and chocolaty! I have to say too much work for my bad hands, but I would sure eat them! Hey, what if you made the plain cookies and then just broke them up or chopped them small and added to the chocolate..Not as cute, but taste would be the same?

Baking Ribbons--in Rita's post, she mentions that you could just bake the cookies bigger and flat and just break them up. But the little cookie chips are so cute. ;)
