Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough as a GIFT?
Heck yeah and it’s one of my very favorite things to gift someone. A new mom, a sick friend, after a surgery, neighbor or co-worker gift, a Christmas surprise, your imagination is your only limit.
Start off by making a batch of my Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies through the dough ball stage. To make them a bit more festive, I added some Christmas colored M & M’s to the dough. Freeze until ready to assemble.
Once ready to “gift” place them in a container of your choice, here I did them as co-worker gifts for Christmas and so I used the holiday Ziplock containers picked up at the local grocery store.
Warm, out-of the-oven chocolate chip cookies whenever they want to eat them, there is nothing better than a warm, gooey chocolatey chip cookie. In my humble opinion.
Place as many frozen dough balls in a single layer as desired, put a piece of wax or parchment paper in between and if desired, add an additional layer of dough balls.
Replace lid, or if using a ziplock, remove as much air as possible.
Purchase some inexpensive flour sack towels like these to wrap your containers; it makes for both cute and useful wrapping. They are by the way, my most favorite hand towel; being white I can easily clean them, they are super absorbent, line a bread basket with one, dampen and place over rising bread or rolls, drying dishes, polishing crystal…the list goes on. Once they get holes or big stains on them, I “retire” them to my rag bag and continue using them for things like; window washing, polishing my silver, wiping down bathroom fixtures, applying oil to my counters, you name it.
Fold lengthwise into thirds and lay under the container.
Pull up the long ends and using a length of ribbon gather at top and wrap ribbon around.
Tie a pretty bow! Add some quick instructions, right now I don’t have a printable, but God willing as my blog grows perhaps I’ll add that feature.
Keep in fridge or freezer until ready to deliver.
