Mike’s First Departure

For Mike’s first “care package” here’s what I did:

– I made him a set of cards to “open when…” Some with personal messages, jokes, pictures, etc.
– He loves chocolate, so I made him a bunch of chocolate covered Oreos and cookie dough.

I made a simple egg-less cookie dough and rolled it into balls. I then stuck them in the fridge for a few minutes to harden up a bit.


Since this wasn’t super fancy, I used ghiraedelli 60% dark chocolate chips! and melted them down in the microwave with some Crisco. I used approximately 1tbs of Crisco per 2 cups of chocolate chips.


then simply dipped the cookie dough balls and Oreos into the chocolate. I then set them on Saran Wrap and stuck them in the fridge for a bit to firm up the chocolate. 


And I only ate about half the dough!
