Ahh cookies. You get all hyped to try a new recipe, read a ton of glowing reviews and suddenly what looks promising, turns into a baking disaster. It’s enough to end you into a blind rage, a crying fit or if the people around you are lucky…both. But fear not! I’m going to show you that even if you’ve just had a massive cookie fail, it may be the sweetest mistake you’ve ever made! (Unless you burned them, then I can only offer tissues…I’m a realist, not a wizard.)

Dump your batch fail into a large bowl. The warmer the better as it’ll be easier to work with.
Take out your frustration by getting your hands in there and squishing it all into a big mound.
Add about 1/4 cup of your chosen binder (I’m using hazelnut spread) and mix together until you are able to ball them with your hand and the mixture sticks together without crumbling apart.
Ball them up to make truffle sized balls and put toothpicks in them and place them on a lined cookie sheet. When all of the mixture is used up, put the truffle balls into the freezer.
Time to make a double boiler. Add 1/2 cup of water to a medium saucepan and turn on low heat.
Add a large glass or metal bowl. Add chips of your choice. I’m using peanut butter chips since it’s what I had on hand but use whatever you think would be a complimentary flavor.
Slowly melt the chips and add 1 tbsp of coconut oil to the melted chips and stir until smooth. Turn it down to simmer.
Take your frozen dough balls and dip them into the melted chips making sure to cover every inch of them and tap off any excess. Put them back onto the cookie sheet and repeat with the rest of them. Top them with chocolate shavings, nuts, sprinkles or whatever you have on hand to pretty up the tops before sticking them into the fridge to set up.
Eat them and share with everyone as though you meant to do that. 😉
