Okay, I know my general philosophy for fixing food is “healthy, quick and easy”. But sometimes you have to try quick, easy and tasty. Stuffed chocolate chip cookies are quick and easy to make and definitely tasty. This is one of those desserts you can get the kids to help you make and gives them something fun to do.
The first time I made my Chocolate Cherry Bomb dessert I found I had a lot of whipped topping left over and did not want to waste it. So I tried to come up with something that would pair well with the chocolaty coffee flavors in the topping. I remembered a cake dessert my daughter-in-law likes to fix with chocolate chip cookies and thought I could simplify it into an individual dessert or snack.
If you have time to make a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies, go for it! If you are short on time or you do not like to bake, you can always find homemade style chocolate chip cookies at the grocery store or farmer’s market. Stuffing the cookies is easy. Just put a spoonful of whipped topping on a chocolate chip cookie and smooth it out to the edges of the cookie. Place another chocolate chip cookie on top and you have made your first stuffed chocolate chip cookie. This is so easy you can get your kids to stuff the cookies as long as you trust them with a butter knife. Refrigerate the cookies in a plastic container to keep them fresh.
Try making this quick, easy and tasty treat the next time you have a picnic or it’s your turn to bring dessert to a party. I bet the only thing leftover are the crumbs!
Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 dozen homemade chocolate chip cookies
1 cup cold heavy whipping cream
8 oz mascarpone cheese
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp coffee liqueur
2 tbsp unsweetened chocolate powder
½ cup sugar
In a large bowl whip together heavy whipping cream, mascarpone cheese, vanilla, sugar, chocolate powder and liqueur. Start out on a low speed to mix and gradually increase speed to high. Whip until mixture is firm and forms peaks.
Add a spoonful of whip topping to the flat side of one cookie. Spread evenly over cookie and then place another cookie on top of the filling flat side down to form a sandwich. Repeat until all the cookies are assembled and enjoy!
