You know what hours of endless brainstorming results in?
Combining two desserts to make one awesome… dessert love child. Dessert love childs are kind of a thing in the food blogging world.
Think about it. Without food bloggers we would not have the Better than Crack Brownies, 7 Layer Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars, Oatmeal and Chocolate Cookie Bars, Peanut Butter S’more 7 Layer Bars or Oreos stuffed in just about anything.
Dessert would be just plain boring with out us. I mean really, we all need brownies, ice cream and cookies rolled into one. Right?
Yeah, yeah. Dont answer that.
Seriously though, I thought these up because of my brother, Kai.
Poor broken Kai. It seems like he is always broken. This time it’s his collarbone, for the second time. He had surgery on it the other day, which totally gave me an excuse to make Special K-Bars. Cause obviously they are special. Oh and they are his favorite.
But then I went hiking……
The dot, dot, dots are my way of saying, oh no here I go. Cause when I go hiking, I brainstorm. Some things are just gross, somethings could be ok, but then there are some things that just work. These, these and these were all hiking creations.
Kai, he loves only three desserts. Yeah, three. Chocolate chip cookies (and just chocolate chip, no crazy add ins), Special K-Bars and cookie dough (the real stuff with eggs and all).
So yeah, you get where this is going. I put cookie dough in the K-bars. Minus the raw egg of course.
I used this dough recipe from the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cups I made earlier this year and it just so happens that they are like kind of, NOT all that bad for you. Yeah, skinny cookie dough.
And it’s actually good. Kai approved. Promise.
Here’s the funny thing. I presented these to Kai and he said, “what the heck, you put cookie dough in the K-Bars. Tieghan, come on you can’t do that. I want K-Bars and Cookie Dough, but I don’t want them together!”
Kai, he hates all love childs. The rest of us?
We love um. He’s just plain boring. Oh and since they’re “skinny” you can totally have like four, five, or maybe six!
