Cookie-Dough flavored Puppy Chow?
- GraceW May 5, 2012 11:47 PM
I need to make a gift for a friend.. who loves two things:
1) cookie dough
2) puppy chow
Any ideas how to make cookie-dough flavored puppy chow? I have seen cake batter puppy chow.. but she likes cookie dough best! Let me know your thoughts and ideas.
If puppy chow is too low-brow for you, then just don't comment. Just bi-pass the thread, but my friend loves it.. so I'm going to make it. At this point I am think about covering traditional puppy chow with one of those bag-mixes for chocolate chip cookies? Does that sound like it might work?
No, I don't think it will -- you're going to end up with the rather unpleasant taste of raw flour -- and cookie batter has raw egg -- which would be a Very Bad Idea to use in a snack-mix recipe like this. (I'm not afraid of the salmonella in raw eggs -- but raw egg as a coating for something that's going to sit in a dish at room temperature is asking for trouble)
There **might** be someone who sells cookie dough chunks that you could add in -- I couldn't find any, but I did see these: http://www.dylanscandybar.com/Chocola... which would be a good addition to the rest of the puppy chow.
Your local bulk candy shop might have them, too.
that was going to be my suggestion as well... i might consider doing the biscoff spread too instead of PB... here's my safe-to-eat cookie dough recipe
85 g unsalted browned butter, still melted
80 g brown sugar
72 g granulated sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
80 g flour
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
combine in that order essentially... let rest for 10 min. form balls and chill to set.
I made puppy chow with Biscoff spread.. HOLY COOKIES. If you love cookies, you will love this. Before I let it sit, you could not taste the Biscoff at all. THEN IT SAT. Then it tasted like BISCOFF to the exponent of BISCOFF!
Good thing it is for a gift. TOO GOOD. And I don't even like Biscoff much; it just is a whole other tasting Puppy Chow than usual. Enjoy if you like Biscoff!
Raw Cookie Dough that's safe
This raw cookie dough contains no eggs.
2 Cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 Cup unsalted butter, melted
1 Cup packed brown sugar
1/2 Cup white sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
4 Tbsp milk
Optional: Mix in chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, white chocolate chips,
peanuts, pecans, walnuts, raisins, crasins, etc.
Mix all ingredients in a big bowl and enjoy.
