Are you like me? Embarrassed to show your face at the corner ice cream shop again. Because when you do they look at your muffin top hangin' over your jean shorts rather than look you in the eye. Or maybe you're just afraid they might say, "hey isn't this your third time here today". "Well I did ride my bike....." kinda wipes the slate clean doesn't it?
Or maybe, just maybe you don't live within 30 miles of an ice cream shop or store that sells ice cream. Then you must resort to making your own fun toppings such as Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Nuggets.
Oooh la la, now were talkin', am I speaking your language? You will be the mom/dad of the summer after you whip up these tasty nuggets for ice cream or just to snack on.
1 cup flour + 2 tablespoons
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
Combine the flour, salt, and baking soda. Add to the butter mixture. Mix well.
Mix in the mini chips. You are welcome to add more if you like your chip to dough ratio on the high side.
Now line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and pinch of little nuggets and lay them on the paper.
My son informed me that these nuggets were way too big for ice cream sundays. He was right, I ended up cutting them in halves and quarters after they had been frozen for about a half an hour.
"Hi, you sweet little nuggy, wuggy you. Aren't you cute. Hope you don't mind air conditioning." Now you need to move some stuff around (in my case I had to move the waffles and frozen calf nuts that I brought back from Oklahoma) and stick the cookie sheet in the freezer for at least one hour. When they are hard and won't squish when you try and give the cutie pies a squeeze they are ready to put on ice cream or you can throw them in a freezer bag and save them for when ever you get the urge!
If vanilla is your flavor....
Or perhaps chocolat-A!
What did you say? You think I am stalling....
Really. I need to what?
Get my butt in gear and post my PW Ranch visit....OK, OK. I'm workin' on it. I seriously have a heap-o-pictures to get through, and I needed to love on my kiddos with some chocolate nuggets. So it will be soon. Be patient with me.
