My 100th Post! BUI: Trav and Jules' Diabeetus on Stick

First all I just wanted to say thanks everyone for reading! I can't believe I hit such a bloggie milestone. To all of my new followers (and old ones too) please feel free to introduce yourself!

A bit ago I made these cookies- sooo delish

chocolate chip impregnated by oreos!
  Which got my friend Travis and I we came up with  these which are cookie dough balls (no egg in the batter- I used a bit of milk instead), stuffed with a mini oreo ball, dipped in chocolate and pretzel peices or Diabeetus on Stick for short.  I also had a major eff up and at the end with the chocolate so I just smushed some mini M&Ms on then instead of chocolate.

I take things to work so I dont eat them all
To make these I used my favorite recipe for chocolate chip cookies:
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs*
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons hot water
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth (this tastes amazing by itself). Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla.  Dissolve baking soda in hot water, add to the batter along with the salt. Stir in flour and chocolate chips. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans.
  3. Bake for about 10 mins or until edges are nicely browned.
** Now if you are not going to bake these and make diabeetus treats then do not add eggs. Instead mix everything together and then add a few splashes of milk before adding chocolate chips to make the dough moist.**

Ok now you have made the cookie dough so we need to make the oreo truffles to put inside them.
Oreo Truffles
  • Food processor
  • 1 package of Oreos
  • 1 stick of cream cheese
  • 1 bag chocolate
Put oreos in food processor until they form a powder the consistency of coffee grounds. Break up the cream cheese and add to the the Oreo powder. Blend until it forms a dough ball. Afterwards it helps to put this in the freezer for a bit so that it is easier to scoop out the balls.  Form into balls and dip into melted chocolate (Ive found making a double boiler with a glass bowl and a pan of water works the best).

    To make diabeetus treats use a 1/2 tablespoon measuring spoon to scoop out oreo truffles. 

 Take some cookie dough and stretch it around the truffle until completely covered. Put the stick in the middle of the ball of delishness, dip into chocolate and roll into broken pretzel pieces. Freeze to set up the chocolate. Enjoy!
