Look at the box, note the various cookie flavors that are listed. I think this is misleading since they do not provide recipes and the booklet says the mold will not work with regular or store bought cookie dough.
In my oven the recommended 30 minutes worked perfectly.
I used a chocolatey candy coating, the removable melting bowl, and the stand to melt the coating in the microwave. It worked very well but I can't help feeling that this is really unnecessary. I've melted candy coating and chocolate in the microwave with other bowls. Since this kit does not include a tiny spatula or brush you still have to use some utensil to help spread the coating around the inside.
Once cooled the coating does indeed protect the cookie shot glass from skim milk.
I recommend drinking whatever you put into the cookie glass and then eating the cookie part even if it didn't crumble, better to be safe than sorry, right? Tastes great and very much like a cross between shortbread texture and chocolate chip flavor.
The kit could and should simply be the booklet and the cookie shot mold; the other items are unnecessary and simply make the kit look good while adding a higher cost.
The biggest difficulty with these cookies is the time it takes to make them. From the point of making the dough through letting the coating dry inside it takes around 3 hours –– 3 hours –– to make just 6 of these. In short this took me 12 hours to make 20.5 of these and that is crazy! Yes, they did taste good and they were fun to use but honestly I can't recommend this kit.
|Tilting cookie shots my fault, not the kit.|
