Tips and suggestionsEdit
- Use white chocolate chips in the cookie dough for a sweeter flavor.
- Consider sprinkling coconut flakes or chopped nuts over the dunked cookie dough eggs for a change of taste.
- The cookie dough eggs can be frozen, and last for about three weeks.
- Be sure you allow the cookie dough eggs to fully harden before eating. If the eggs haven't set, the chocolate will still be liquid-like.
