Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls


These images were quite a struggle to take. Firstly, I made 2 batches of these mint chocolate cookie dough balls and they disappeared in record time before I had a chance to style them beautifully for the blog. Once my sister and my friend and I got our hands on these, it was safe to say we weren’t going to stop until not even one was left visible on the plate. Need I say more?

Batch number 3 was a little more successful and I managed to capture a few photos before stuffing each one into my mouth immediately. Peppermint and chocolate has always been a favourite combination of mine, but the soft yet firm minty texture with a chocolate chip crunch makes these incredibly irresistible and I urge you to try them now! They may not even make it into the freezer to set – you have been warned. Enjoy 😉
