Cookie Dough Truffles

After receiving my copy of The Cookie Dough Lover's Cookbook, and trying five of the recipes within a three-day period, I can highly, highly recommend this book. It was the 50th addition to my shelf of baking books and this is the one I was most excited about. It's awesome. The cookie dough is insanely good - the best ever - and here it is dipped in chocolate. Now go buy the book, you won't regret it!

My sister and I used to eat bourbon biscuits all the time; I will forever associate them with the film 'Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets' because that's when we would eat insane amounts of them. I recently bought Kate Shirazi's book 'Cookie Magic', which is filled with recipes for all the classics: custard creams, digestives, rich teas...and bourbons. They were so much more chocolaty than the ones I remember from my Harry-Potter-watching-days. Magic!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cups

It's no secret that I love cookie dough...and cookies. But together? A whole new level of yummyness. Want to eat cookie dough but want baked cookies at the same time? Try a cookie cup, filled with cookie dough - it's immense. Chewy, gooey, chocolaty, and the best of both worlds. Shelly from Cookies & Cups is a genius.

Chocolate Mayonnaise Brownies

When you run out of butter, you feel pretty limited in what you can bake. Therefore I decided to try a brownie recipe that used mayonnaise and was in turn, low fat. I don't know what I was expecting, but it is now my absolute favourite simple brownie recipe. It tastes far too good to be low fat, yet it is! By the way, you can't taste the mayonnaise, it's just chocolate all the way!
