I’m back from SF! And very glad to be back, might I add. No matter what, I will always be a SoCal girl. I’m just not made for cold weather… which is kind of ironic, because it looks like I’ll be moving up north this summer. I went with my DB for admitted students weekend at Berkeley, and he really fell in love with Boalt. We did our fair share of eating, walking, and mingling, but darn, it feels good to be home. Foodie pictures to come!
While home, I pop cookie dough bites like there’s not tomorrow. So when I saw this recipe from Visions of Sugar Plum, it was a given that I had to make them. You can buy the cookie dough bites candy from Target, the movie theatre, or even Dollar Tree!
These cookies are perfect. Hearty, soft, and chewy.. the trifecta of cookies. Give them a go, cookie dough lovers!
