Love is in the air. Seriously! Have you seen the number of Valentines Day goodies floating around all the food blogs lately? My gosh! I am still getting over Christmas! Just kidding. I love Valentines day, not really because I am hoping cupid will deem me worthy enough to shoot me with the arrow of love, but because the man I already LOVE MADLY was born on Valentines day! He is pretty much the best Valentines gift I could hope for, waking up next to him and making him a wonderful cake and scrumptious dinner does it for me! I know, soppy. But its true! Well others are planning to make valentines day goodies, I am planning a birthday cake. Cept Shane has pretty much narrowed that choice down. He adores Mozart Cake. I promise when I make it for him this year, I will share it with you guys!
But, I thought I had better join in the festivities, so I made these custard choc-chip cookie dough pops to share with you!
Its as easy as this: throw all the ingredients into your mixer bowl.
Mix until it looks like this. Then add 1 cup of chocolate chips and mix them all around.
Roll them into balls and dip them in some chocolate. If you want to see more about the dipping part - check out this post on condensed milk and shortbread cake pops. The only difference is: once rolled, pop them into the freezer for about 5 minutes, then dip the tip of a cake pop stick in some melted chocolate and push it about half way into the cookie dough pop. Then, pop them back into the freezer for about 10 minutes before your dipping begins. If you don't do this, the dough gets a little too hard to push the stick into.
That's all. Simple and sweet!
If you plan to make them, and share them, here are some cute Printable Valentines Day tags for you!
