Sometimes I see Charm City Cake products at Target and I think about grabbing a few and for some reason, I don’t think I have until now. As I was walking around the Valentine section these jumped out at me. While I’m sure I could make much better fresh strawberry cookies…I wanted to make sure I am still doing projects with Hucklebaby with a new kiddo in the house. Plus, only one week in with two kids, I’m still juggling my time and sleep. Hucklebaby has been incredibly sweet to his new baby brother and I absolutely melt when I watch them together.
There are three things in the box so look carefully. Cookie mix, mini chocolate chips and a tiny food coloring packet. I almost threw this away, it was stuck to the very bottom.
This dough was difficult for little hands to mix and got stuck in the whisk almost immediately. For adults this is fine, but for my little guy he got frustrated, so we had to dig out the dough a few times with a fork. He did enjoy that part though.
The finished product. Even though they were all shapes and sizes and not uniform at all, they all baked all the way through. The strawberry was not overpowering and mostly just tasted like a chocolate chip cookie with a little flavoring. I’m not crazy about them though. They left an artificial flavor in my mouth for a good amount of time after I ate them. I get that they have artificial flavor, but I had to eat something else to get the faint strawberry flavoring out of my mouth.
Would I buy them again…no. It makes me question if I want to try other Duff products…but I’ll probably give them another chance. If the next one gas the same after taste I’ll stay away.
