Who doesn’t love cookie dough?!

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE it! It’s so incredibly delicious. There is something so special about it, truly. It’s the simple things in life that matter so much because life is just too short. And cookie dough … well, it is one of those things To. Live. For.

I grew up during the time when it was common to hear, “don’t eat the cookie dough, it has raw eggs!” But, being the cookie dough lover that I am, I always found ways around that. For anyone who loves it, the cookie dough is almost better than the cookies! Well, maybe it is better than the cookies, and that my friends, is why cookie dough bark is so amazing.

Here’s the thing: I have no guilt around indulging when it comes to homemade treats. I know I can control what goes into the recipe. Plus, I know it’s not an everyday food. It is a “treat” for a reason. The good news is we can still enjoy nostalgic treats. I just prefer to real food-ify them a bit and add some healthier ingredients.

October and Fall | Delicious Obsessions

As Anne of Green Gables {L.M. Montgomery} said, “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” Fall is here! It’s such a beautiful time of year, a season that’s near and dear to my heart because it reminds me of my mom. Leaves are turning beautiful colors; sunsets are crimson, pink and orange; the air is crisp; and the chill in the air has us reaching for warming comfort foods like hot chocolate, spiced apple cider, herbal coffee and chai tea.

With October also comes the start of commercialized sweets galore and candy overload everywhere you look. As Halloween approaches, there is not a store anywhere that doesn’t have candy displays staring right at you.

I am a real food mom, and when it comes to my kids, I prefer to celebrate Fall Harvest and use The Switch Witch concept for Halloween. This means my oldest, Little Love, still gets to go trick-or-treating and enjoy all of the fun and excitement around Halloween. But, I don’t let her eat the commercialized candy. Instead, I make a really special treat for our family to enjoy. Enter SEA SALTED COOKIE DOUGH BARK! And yes, I swap out all of the junk candy for a smaller amount of “healthier” organic candies and fair trade chocolates.

But back to the Sea Salted Cookie Dough Bark. This stuff is amazingly addictive and such a fun treat. I don’t know about you, but I think sea salt goes so well with sweet, especially chocolate. I love adding a generous layer of fleur de sel to the top layer of the cookie dough bark. It’s so good!!! Plus you get the added benefit of trace minerals from the true, real sea salt. Not that I need an excuse, but it is a good one.

It’s so easy to make cookie dough bark! Easier than truffles because there is no rolling or dipping necessary. If you work quickly, you can have this delectable treat made in full and ready to eat in under an hour. It only takes about 20 minutes of prep time. I had mine done and ready to eat in 30 minutes. How easy is that?

So as Halloween approaches or the holidays roll around or if you just simply need to stock your freezer with a treat, give this lip-smacking Sea Salted Cookie Dough Bark a try. You’re going to love it!

Sea Salted Cookie Dough Bark

Sea Salted Cookie Dough Bark

Yield: 20 Servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Additional Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes

This stuff is amazingly addictive and such a fun treat. And, I don't know about you, but I think sea salt goes so well with sweet, especially chocolate.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Place large baking sheet lined with unbleached parchment paper in the freezer.
  2. In a food processor, standing mixer or high-efficiency blender, add all ingredients except for the chocolate chips and fleur del sel. Pulse several times or mix until it's combined and a "dough" forms, scraping down the sides if necessary. Do not over mix, just mix until it all comes together.
  3. Add dough to a large mixing bowl and stir in 1/4 cup chocolate chips, use clean hands to mix it together if necessary. Set aside.
  4. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, melt 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips, stirring occasionally until melted.
  5. Remove baking sheet from freezer and pour melted chocolate over the parchment paper. Spread the chocolate with a knife or offset spatula, taking care not to make the chocolate layer too thin {the melted chocolate will not cover the whole surface of the baking sheet - I spread the chocolate about 10 inches wide}. [Note - do not discard the pan, you will use it again.]
  6. Immediately place baking sheet with melted chocolate into the freezer. Allow to set for about 5 minutes.
  7. Remove baking sheet from freezer. Evenly spread cookie dough over the solid chocolate layer. Place baking sheet back in the freezer and allow to set up for about 5-7 minutes.
  8. While the cookie dough layer is in the freezer, melt the remaining 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally until melted.
  9. Remove baking sheet from freezer and pour remaining melted chocolate over the cookie dough layer. Evenly spread the chocolate over the cookie dough using a knife or offset spatula.
  10. Sprinkle a generous amount of fleur del sel or course sea salt over the melted chocolate.
  11. Place baking sheet back in the freezer. Allow to set up and harden before breaking apart, cutting into chunks or slices.
  12. Store cookie dough bark in the freezer in an air-tight container.

Notes

Yield: Varies, makes at least 20 medium-size pieces of cookie dough bark

I prefer the flavor of butter or ghee, but if you need it to be dairy-free, coconut oil works fine.

*You can omit the macadamia or cashew butter and replace with 1 more cup blanched almond flour.
