Sponsor Spotlight ~ Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls from The Cooking Actress

Apparently, I have a huge crush on Kayle from The Cooking Actress… or is it her long list of cookie recipes? Either way, I love the girl and her extensive list of drool-worthy cookie recipes.

I had a major craving for cookies this past weekend. Like, I needed cookies in my mouth ASAP! Have you ever experienced a craving so strong that it consumed your thoughts for hours, days, weeks? I get them all the time. It’s like needing a new handbag or pair of heels; you think about it constantly, pacing around the living room until you break down and buy the damn bag. That’s what happened over the weekend. My cookies thoughts were relentless. What’s a girl to do in this situation but break out the whisk and get to whipping.

This craving ran deep. Store-bought cookies weren’t even an option. Call me a cookie snob, but I needed soft, gooey, homemade cookies. I needed these chocolate cookie dough ball cookies.

Kayle created something special when she came up with this recipe. I swear, the cookie tastes just like your eating raw cookie dough from a spoon. You can have your cookie dough and eat it, too. It’s genius!

I called my mom while I was gathering the ingredients to make these cookies. As I was talking to her, I mentioned that I was getting ready to make a new cookie recipe.

“Cookies? Ugh, aren’t you tired of cookies?” She said, sounding absolutely appalled.

People, I almost fainted. Okay, that’s an exaggeration; but, seriously, is that even possible?

I said, “Yeah, I’m going to pretend I didn’t hear that… for Kayle’s sake.”

Tired of cookies? Psht!  I love the woman, but she’s crazy.

If you’re having a major cookie craving that requires homemade, gooey cookies, you’ll want to make these. Enjoy!

If you want to be like me and stalk Kayle, you can find her on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

    Am I the only person who doesn’t know the difference between the taste of a baked cookie and the taste of cookie dough? Anyway, these look fantastic.


Leave some love. It makes me happy!
