Chocolate Chip Milk Dunkers

 Sometimes mistakes lead to delicious discoveries. I blame it all on my son‘s adorable smile and a need to play Hot Wheels right in the same time I was making my first biscotti. He is the most adorable boy ever and I love him to pieces! The way he says “Mommy” just melts my heart! He is known for getting me in trouble. icon smile Chocolate Chip Milk Dunkers

Can you tell I have mommy goggles on today? icon smile Chocolate Chip Milk Dunkers

Anyhow, I was shaping the biscotti dough before the first baking and before I knew it – I sliced the raw dough and started placing it on the baking sheet. I realized what was going on when the dough kept sticking to the knife!

Dough sliced, placed on baking sheet – what was there left to do but try and bake it.

 What came out of the oven, totally surprised me. The little slices of cookie dough, baked up beautifully! They were crunchy, yet delicate and absolutely delicious!

I saw my kiddos dip them in their milk and it hit me: I made milk dunkers! Adorable little cookie sticks you can dunk in your milk and enjoy as a treat. Swoon!

    Hi Christine ! I am alway looking at your recipes, I used these dunkers for a birthday party! It was a hit! The kiddos loved them. I used M M candy to party up some of them. Thank you !!!

  3. Nancy says

    Lol, my mistakes always create horrific results that fill me with angst and anxiety (and kitchen mistakes lead to inedible messes that go in the garbage). If only mine were as delicious as these! I love the idea of milk dunkers – my favourite thing to do as a kid was dip chocolate chip cookies in milk.

  4. Nicole says

    I wish my mistakes were as adorable and scrumptious as these Chocolate Chip Milk Dunkers are. What a fun treat for kids and adults alike.

  5. Anne B says

    Anna…I love chocolate chip dunkers. Trader Joe’s actually sells them, though your home made version look so much better! Got to love those sweet little interruptions….I hope your son liked them, too! : )

    Gotta love those “mistakes”!! Did you ever get around to redoing the biscotti? :) I think these are way better dunkers than cookies, and they sound delish!

  7. curryandcomfort says

    I wish I had such lucky “accidents” with my baking. :) These look fun!! Even the big kids in our house (ie.. Hubs and myself) would love them. :)

  8. says

    one of my favorite recipes ever on my website is a mistake recipe! I secretly love it when that happens. These are adorable Anna. I’ll take the whole batch, please…. ;)

  9. domesticfits says

    Those look great! I would never have know they were mistakes. They look like Trader Joes Dunkers :)
