Ferrero Rocher Cookie Dough Dip

Procrastination is a bad habit of mine.
I’m probably one of the biggest procrastinators you’ll ever meet.
Luckily for the blog, one of my favorite ways to procrastinate is to stalk the recipe archives of some of my favorite food bloggers. You know, because sometimes stalking Foodgawker and Pinterest just isn’t enough.
This week I’m supposed to be working on a research paper about the thirteen colonies for my U.S. History class, but somewhere along the way I stopped making outlines and thinking up thesis statements and started scouring the recipe archives on Jessica’s blog instead.
C’mon you know looking up recipes is 100 times more interesting than History anyways…
an hour a few minutes of looking up recipes I began to feel hungry. I sure had worked up an appetite after all that procrastinating essay writing.
As I’m sure you guessed looking at the title, I decided to make Jessica’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip. If there’s one thing that’s better than the taste of chocolate chip cookies hot out of the oven, it’s the taste of raw cookie dough. And the idea of having that in dip-form was simply to much to bear.
I shoved my school papers aside and immediately started gathering ingredients, measuring, mixing, and making a mess of the kitchen. It took me until halfway through the preparation stage to realize that I didn’t have any chocolate chips on hand.
My stomach dropped. My eyes began to tear. [Okay, totally kidding about that part!] I couldn’t believe I was out of chocolate chips. My cookie dough dip needed chocolate chips!
Just when I was about to give up and settle with chocolate chip-less cookie dough I remembered my early Valentine’s present. Cookie dough dip with the chocolate hazelnut goodness of Ferrero Rochers? I think yes!
The day was saved and the cookie dough dip was amazing! Plus the mild sugar high that ensued after having 92364 spoonfuls of the dip gave me just the energy I needed to get some of my paper done. But just some.
