Fun Friday: What I’m Bringing To Bunco {Edible Cookie Dough Recipe}

IMG_8692

Happy Friday!

I gotta say, with the weird week we had last week, Friday seemed to take forever to get here this week. I’m not complaining though – although slow, it was still a great week Smile

You guys know me (and if you’re new and don’t know me, welcome!!) I love to bake. I love to cook. I love finding new recipes and giving a whirl at my own. So when an opportunity comes for me to bring one of those drool-worthy recipes to a party, you think I’d be all over that idea, right?

Wrong.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m more than happy to help out, and love to help a hostess not be overwhelmed when it comes to parties and gatherings. However, somehow – even with limitless options thanks to blogs and pinterest – my mind draws a blank on what to bring every. single. time.

Take, for example, my bunco group. Every other month, I’m on the list to bring something. And every other month, I’m left with t-minus two hours until I have to be at the host’s house, scrambling trying to figure out what to bring at the last minute. I don’t see the logic either. It’s OK.

But not tonight. Oh no! Bunco’s tonight and my name is on the “to bring food list” and this month, I will not bring chips and salsa or packaged cookies! I’ve had this figured out for a good week.

Edible Monster Cookie Dough.

But there’s a story behind this dough.

For weeks I’ve been going to Fresh Market and eyeing The Cookie Dough Café’s jarred edible cookie dough. Weeks! However, the $7 price tag per pint always stops me from walking away with a jar in my cart. Then, finally they were doing a tasting the other day whilst I was shopping. I grabbed a spoon, got in line, and was blown away. This tastes like heaven on a little white plastic spoon! I think I said.

Then I meandered over to the jars again, about to cave and put one in my cart, when I flipped it around and looked at the ingredients.

Um. I can totally make this at home. For about $2.00. And I did. The only thing that’s missing is a label!

(Also, if you’ve deduced by now that this is NOT a healthy alternative to edible cookie, you’d be right. And if you hadn’t, warning: this is not a health-ified recipe. But it is tasty Smile)

Edible Monster Cookie Dough

1/4 c. brown sugar

1/2 white sugar

1 stick of butter

1/2 c. peanut butter

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 c. oats

1/2 c. all-purpose flour

1 tsp. sea salt

1/4 c. almond milk

1/3 c. crushed peanut butter (or regular) mnm’s

Cream together the sugar, butter, peanut butter, and vanilla extract. Gradually stir in the oats, flour, and sea salt. Add the almond milk, plus more if necessary. The consistency should be slightly less doughy than cookie dough, as the oats will soak up some of the excess moisture. Finally, add in the crushed mnm’s. Eat with pretzels, graham crackers, or the way I prefer – with a spoon Winking smile

I think this one will be a hit! Fingers crossed.

But before Bunco tonight, I’ve got a buuuuuusy one, interspersed with clients, desk work, and a spin class (yay!) Have a happy Friday, my friends!

What do you usually bring as an appetizer or finger food to parties?

I’m also bringing a bottle of wine Winking smile

  1. I’m totally craving cookie dough now!!! That looks delicious! I made a cookie dough dip for Super Bowl Sunday and it was a big hit. I will have to try this one next though. Of course I have to wait until I have an event that’s not at my house or else I’d be tempted to just eat the whole jar by myself. I’m pretty sure I could do it.

  2. What in the world is Bunco? This looks sinfully delicious, regardless! :)

  3. This looks so so good! I feel like this would be dangerous to have in the house :)

  4. I want to eat this now and it is only 8:45!!! The only other time I have heard of Bunco was on the real housewives of oc and there nights always turn into a dramatic brawl, hope yours are my civilized ;)

  5. Yum!!!

    When I hear “Bunco” I automatically think Real Housewives of OC! haha Do you watch? They’ve had a few Bunco parties!

  6. I am the worst at figuring out appys! Usually in my house that means veggies and hummus or cheese and crackers. haha. So usually I bring a dessert or salad to potluck type things.
    Have a great weekend!

  7. That looks perfect! Who doesn’t love cookie dough?! I normally take home made hummus and veggies or a quinoa salad of some sort (if it’s a pot luck). I think I’ll be taking this next time though…YUM!

  8. wow, i have a feeling i would have absolutely no self control with this stuff!

  9. I suck at bring stuff to parties. Usually have to carry on the train and in the heat or better yet carry it around all day. Grapes. I bring grapes a lot.

  10. I am always bringing cookies to parties, although I definitely will have to try this out ASAP!

  11. This looks dangerous. I could probably eat the whole recipe in one sitting. I’m already craving some!

  12. I’m a big fan of dips like this. My friend made a cookie dough dip with cream cheese as well. AMAZING.

    Have fun at the party!

  13. oh my god I think I would just eat that whole jar!

  14. Oh man, that is genius. It looks so good! I’ve seen the healthified ones obviously, since I’ve made them myself, but I doubt anything comes to the original stuff! Have fun tonight!!

  15. Hi Paige, thanks for stopping by my blog! Your dough looks so decadent! I usually bring wine but if requested to bring food, I’d either back or bring my favorite goat cheese appetizer!

  16. Oh, yeah! I’m all over that. I’m so like you in that I’ve seen to die for food at the grocery store but see the price and think “I can make that and make it way cheaper.” I think you nailed this one, girl!

  17. That looks so good! My go-to dish is always brownies! I can whip up a pan in no time and they are always a hit!

  18. You are so creative, I love it! That recipe looks so yummy and I might just have all the ingredients to try it this weekend :)

  19. Holy cow, this looks SO good! I love cookie dough. I would eat that whole jar in one sitting!

  20. Hi! I just stumbled upon your blog and I love it! Keep up the great work and I can’t wait to read more! <3
