Talented cake decorator Jennifer Wold shares with us her horribly cool chocolate chip cookie tutorial which includes a step-by-step instructional on how to create your very own dough monsters.
This recipe will work with any chocolate chip cookie recipe. For the eyes, you may use sugar pearls or jelly beans and for the teeth, you may use almond silvers.
This recipe happens to be gluten-free, but don’t worry, all the flavor is there and they are still delicious. Super soft and chewy too!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
- 6 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1/3 cup almond butter
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- 1 chia egg (1 tablespoon ground chia + 3 tablespoons water)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/3 cup GF oats
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, roughly chopped
Preheat oven to 350° F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl combine ground chia and water. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer cream butter and almond butter. Add chia egg and sugar. I only use 1/4 cup sugar but you could add more if you like your cookies sweeter.
Add remaining dry ingredients and mix to combine.
Using a 1 1/4 inch cookie scoop, scoop batter onto parchment lined baking sheet and flatten slightly. These cookies will not spread so make them as large or as small as you want the final cookie to be.
Bake 8-10 minutes. Cookies will be soft.
You can use the following items/ingredients to decorate the cookies:
- sugar pearls (large and small)
- slivered almonds
- food coloring markers (red and black)
- ball head sculpting tool
- red gel food coloring and small food safe paint brush *optional
Make an indent where you want the eyes and mouth to be. Working with warm cookies will make it so the dents don’t turn in to cracks.
Using the black marker color in the holes.
Press sugar pearls in the indents for the eyes.
Break almond slivers into teeth like shapes and press into the mouth as desired.
Using the red marker color the teeth to look like blood. On some of the cookies Want a more bloody look? You can use gel food coloring and a paint brush to get a more dramatic look!
