Chocolate Chip Cookie Mousse Bombs

 i enjoy making food that i can't eat. why? because i'm a sadist- duh.

...ok that's a lie. i technically can eat it (i'm not deathly allergic or anything) but my calorie intake counter tells me i shouldn't.

but sometimes i do it anyway.
not a sadist- a rebel.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Mousse Bombs (adapted from cookies & cups)
You Need:
4 oz cream cheese, room temp
1 cup cool whip, thawed
1 cup powdered sugar
1 package of crunchy chocolate chip cookies (Chips Ahoy)
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1 tbsp shortening or oil
mini chocolate chips (no, these are not optional)

Directions: Combine the cream cheese & powdered sugar at medium speed until smooth. Fold in the Cool Whip.
Rough chop about 10 cookies & fold them into the above mixture. Chill the mix in the fridge for at least 2 hours or pop it in the freezer for about 45-60 min.
Try not to eat the rest of the cookies while you wait.
When the mix is chilled, melt your semi sweet chips in a microwave safe bowl (i like to use 30-1 min intervals- stirring as i go)- then stir in your shortening or oil. It should be nice & smooth.

Lay our your remaining cookies on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
Using a small scoop (i used a cookie one) scoop a hefty scoop of the cream cheese mixture onto the top of each cookie- press down gently, but firmly, to help it stick to the cookie.
Immediately dip each "bomb" into the chocolate & sprinkle with a few mini chocolate chips.

Keep at it until all your mousse is gone. Place the "bombs" back in the fridge until they're set- at least 15-20 min or so.
Take them out, put them on a plate & ignore the calorie intake counter that tells you not to eat them. Lies.

p.s. i used up the entire package of cookies & i think i still had a little bit of mousse left over. i didn't use a huge scoop of the mix because i feared it would just fall off into the chocolate. so i'd say you can get an entire package worth of "bombs" if you eyeball it well.
Pin It!
