Yesterday was a super fantastic and lovely day. I got to see a friend from work who I've been missing quite a bit, and more friends came over for dinner. It was the kind of day that deserved a dessert salute, so it got one!
This dessert is one that my cousin taught me how to make when I was a teenager; it's one of my favorites. It's really simple, quick, and light (great for after large meals).
Here's what you need:
- Chocolate chip cookies (home made or store bought) - Milk - Crispy Crunch Bar(s) - Cool Whip
I chose to make small, individual desserts in single serve glass tumblers. You can also do one big cookie cloud and cut it into pieces for serving.
To make the 'crust', place the chocolate chip cookie in the glass. The number of cookies you use depends on how thick you want your crust to be. I chose one full cookie and then added crumbs and bits until I got what I wanted.
Next, pour the milk over the cookies. The amount you use will again vary based on the thickness of your crust, but you want just enough milk for the cookie to absorb it completely. You end up with delicious cookie mush (see above).
Cool Whip time! Spread a layer of Cool Whip over your crust.
Smoosh up your chocolate bar into pieces and sprinkle the bits over the top of your dessert!
Done! Now pop your cookie clouds in the freezer for a couple of hours and they'll be ready to serve!
I serve mine with a little bit of caramel sauce drizzled over the top.
Hugs and poops,
