Before we get to these fudgy cookie dough cups, let’s talk about the June salad challenge for a sec. I never thought I would get such a positive response about a salad challenge of all things, but your response blew me away. I’ve already seen many of you blogging and tweeting about it, creating #saladaday Pinterest boards, and challenging coworkers, family, and friends to join in for the month of June. The more the merrier! I started tweeting & Instagraming my salads each day as I prep for the kickoff on June 1st. Feel free to join in. Maybe if this challenge is a success, you can suggest a challenge for July.
And if you were worried that you would be bored with salad posts all month long, well you just don’t know me very well. If I’m eating big salads everyday you can be sure I’m having a treat to go along with it. I discovered my bendy chocolate recipe can be used for pretty much anything, which is trouble. Given my recent infatuation with baked tortilla cups (see: one-bite pizzas), I decided to use the cups as the perfect receptacle for bendy chocolate fudge. And then I topped it all off with Chocolate Chip Cookie Pota-Dough. (By the way, if you are still skeptical of the dip, read through the last page of comments. There are a lot of positive reviews already.)
This recipe is really fun to make and obviously even more fun to eat. Imagine, a layer of chilled fudgy chocolate topped off with cookie dough dip all wrapped in a crispy tortilla cup. It’s a party in a bite-sized cup!
Like many of my creations, I was truly at a loss as to how to photograph these tiny things.
How about on a white cake pedestal? or on the counter?
another angle on the counter perhaps? How about on the back of a mini muffin tin with a white background (???)
After giving up all hope, I threw the cups onto my recipe paper, wrote in my fanciest cursive writing, and called it a day.
This was the day’s salad. Dinosaur kale, lemon juice, olive oil, avocado, strawberries, hemp seeds, homemade sprouts, Herbamare. Good stuff.
If you are crunched for time or just aren’t a cookie dough fan, feel free to make simple chocolate fudge cups (shown below, left). Sprinkle the fudge with some chopped nuts and you have yourself a delicious mini dessert.
Cheers to mini desserts and big honkin’ salads!
