These Cookie Dough Candies are going to save me from off plan treats this Easter!!
Easter has always been a hard holiday for me to stay away from candy, these Cookie Dough Candies are really going to help keep me on plan. They are super rich and satisfying so it only takes one or two to curb that candy craving.
I love these chips for so very many reasons.
They make it easier for my baking to come out with a more traditional taste and look. They are inexpensive and easy to keep on hand in the freezer for whenever I want some baking chips.
It will not take you long to make these candies. The longest time that is needed is the chilling time when you add it all up, it totals about 15 to 30 minutes. I used to make candy with my children when they were younger and the process really gets much easier the more often that you make recipes like this one. The memories that you make are for a lifetime.
I’m a huge believer in family traditions and these cookie dough candies are going to become the new tradition for my husband and myself. Healthy choices aren’t nearly as hard when there are bloggers and Mama’s that share their creativity within the Trim Healthy Mama Community.
May your Holidays and Journeys be blessed.
