Samoa Cookie Dough Cups



Whoa. It’s Friday already?

Didn’t I just share my recipe for the Samoa Cookie Dough Bark saying I would share the recipe for the Samoa Cookie Dough Cups version in the next few days? This week went crazy fast.

So let’s discuss.

I had a little bit of extra cookie dough when I was making the samoa cookie dough bark so I decided to make use of my candy molds which I normally use when I feel like making all sorts of truffles including cupcake-shaped truffles.

You had no idea I was such a crafty baker, did you.

The candy molds are sold in craft stores like Michaels and look like this one below.

Make sure it has those famous ridgy-looking lines.


So this recipe for samoa cookie dough cups is really simple, I promise.

Melt some chocolate, spoon some in each mold. You can use a fancy piping thing or chocolate squeeze bottle but I have no patience for either and never found those methods to work any better than using a little spoon.

Then you plop a little flattened ball of dough down into the chocolate and cover with more melted chocolate.

Let it harden in the fridge for a little bit and then it’s time to eat! So easy, right?!

    I love the donut gloves if I have to choose. It’s awesome you and Amanda text.
    If I chose a never ending something it would probably be cereal. I’m craving it right now.

      So when I first saw this scarf, it reminded me of the one I used to take my son home from the hospital. So similar with the stripes and softness! I totally watched the youtube videos lol. I still need some practice but I love it and figure it will be good for traveling to Disney next week.

    You need both pairs, definitely both . . . and I need that scarf. So cute!

    Not gonna lie, I love the looks of those bags as well. I’m a bag whore anyways, but they are super cute! It really is a more grown up version of Caboodles. Those things were the best!

    My vote is donuts. And I’m SO bad with figuring out how to wear scarves, which is probably why 99% of the time I don’t bother and just go with a jacket that goes way up my neck 😆 I need to visit Michael’s and hit up their food section… if only they didn’t put such crazy prices on all their things… I bought my donut pan from them, and even with the 50% off coupon, it was still the same price as in other stores…

      The candy molds are great – they make a wide variety depending upon what you are looking to make. You can’t put them in the oven so I don’t think you can make muffins with them, at least not the muffins I am thinking of…They also have the silicone molds at Michaels though, which work in the oven or for no bake recipes.

    I’m basically obsessed with all things PB. If PB weren’t so damn expensive here in Kuwait, all of our home decorations would be from there. I guess I could order from the US site since we have a US address. Hmmm.. why didn’t i think of doing that before? Oh & now I wanna check out those make up organizers too.

      Go order your pb now! And yes, check out PB Teen’s website – I know they were running crazy sales on that stuff. I am still considering something for myself and possibly a gift for a friend.

    I think I’d have to pick an endless bowl of potatoes, only because I could do so many different things with potatoes. As much as I love foods, I’m not sure I could eat a bowl of the same anything for an entire day. I’d have to mix it up at some point.

    These cookies/chocolates/whatever you call them look insane, in a great way.
