Soooooo… you know that episode of Sex and the City where Miranda has to dump dish soap on top of chocolate cake just so she will stop eating it??

Uh. Yeeeeeah.

These are like… of that caliber.

And that totally almost happened to me. You PROBably should not make these if you are home alone for four days. Word to the wise, FYI.

I ate what felt like a million, then had a plate of 5-day old green bean fries from the fridge and called it lunch. I do not recommend this. The leftover green bean fries – not the cookie dough cups.

I definitely recommend those.

For lunch.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Peanut Butter Cups

[cookie dough adapted from cookie dough dip]

makes 24 cups

2 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips

1/2 cup unsalted butter

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

3/4 cup powdered sugar

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

In a small saucepan, heat butter until melted. Whisk in brown sugar until dissolved, then let it bubble for 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in peanut butter. The mixture will be liquidly. Whisk in vanilla. Let sit and cool completely, about 20 minutes.

Line a mini muffin with with liners. Melt 1 1/4 cups of chocolate chips (I do mine in the microwave, heating on full power for 20 seconds, stir, 30 seconds again, and stir until melted). Drop 1/2-1 teaspoon of chocolate into each liner, then use a pastry brush to brush chocolate up the sides of the liner. Place in the freezer for 20 minutes. By this point the butter + sugar mix should be cool. Whisk in powdered sugar, salt and flour, until combine and few lumps remain. Fold in mini chocolate chips. The dough will be wet, but pop it in the fridge for 15 minutes to harden.

Remove muffin tin and cookie dough, then place 1 teaspoon of cookie dough (I somewhat rolled mine) into the chocolate cups. Place back in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. Melt the remaining chocolate chips, then cover each cookie dough top with chocolate, smoothing with a spoon. Freeze again for 15-20 minutes. These are fine out in room temperature for a few hours (they may soften a bit) but I like them best stored in the fridge.

Note: I’m sure if you temper your chocolate and let it sit at room temperature these will harden without the freezer, but this is what works for me best.

    I see these happening very soon… and pretty sure I’d have to cover them in more than dish soap to keep from eating them!

    2) that is like my favorite SATC episodes because that unfortunately is me. i may even go as far as picking through to locate any possible area not saturated with soap. i have issues.

    I just spent the last month (or so) re-watching every episode of SATC and that cake/dish soap one is one of my favorites! Last night I watched the last two episodes while bawling my eyes out (when Carrie says bye to the girls I turn into a blubbering mess) while eating red velvet ice cream. I probably could have used a few of these as well – they look amazing!
