So, this was my entry into my family’s annual holiday bake off. I wanted to make these because those circus cookies remind me of my childhood.
Firstly, getting the cookies into crumbs was an adventure in itself. The post says 3 cups of cookies. The bags of cookies I got said they were 13 oz a piece, so I thought, “Great I’ll just use a little less than both of these bags.” But 3 cups of cookies, per the post, was literally only half of one bag. So, I determined that maybe it was 3 cups of crumbs? This led to me asking my family every two minutes if the bowl I was pouring the crumbs in looked like it had 3 cups in it. Eventually, I used almost two full bags, which is what I thought in the first place. So.
Next, freezing for three hours. I did it, but then the recipe said to use a fork to dip it into the chocolate. But they were frozen. So I couldn’t put a fork in them. I used a spoon, but then it led to them being kind of chunky, because the chocolate couldn’t drip off.
But oh well, people were still a fan of them!
