I have not gotten the chance to go to a bloggie conference yet.(scheduling, time off etc) It seems like they always spark a new trend across the blogs and this years foodbuzz festival is no different. However, this time I jumped on the bandwagon! Who knows, maybe I’ll actually be able to make it to a conference at some point!
What band wagon did I jump on? None other than the Chocolate Chip Dough Ball trend! I spent all week following Diana from The Chic Life’s trials and errors in perfecting this recipe. I think it was after the second post about it that I decided that I had to taste these.
Finally, Diana perfected the recipe and so I went to the grocery store to get the ingredients. The only thing I really needed was chocolate chips and I was convinced (it doesn’t take much to convince me, I swear, I’m an advertisers’ dream) to get both mint chocolate chips, butterscotch and semi-sweet chips. Don’t worry, I did not combine the mint chocolate with the butterscotch! Instead I made two different batches.
I’m always a little nervous about baking at altitude but I decided to follow her instructions and hope for the best.
Success! These are good! I couldn’t wait the 10 minutes she recommends to eat them. The downside, they are pretty calorie dense. Maybe I’ll work on a lower calorie version?
