Do you know what happens when you have had a busy week and at 9pm on a Thursday night you find a container of Eat Pastry Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip cookie dough you forgot you had in the freezer? Well, you thaw that cookie dough while watching a DVR’d episode of Modern Family, you bake the cookies, you stuff them with peanut butter, and finally you dip them in dark chocolate.
Because you’re crazy like that… and by you, I mean me.
Last night I was feeling the sweets and the cupcake I indulged in while reading #GirlBoss (best book EVER) needed just a bite of a cookie sandwich to go along with it. What can I say, I’ve been eating super healthy lately and needed a treat (or two).

Side note, this isn’t sponsored by Eat Pastry in any way- they just make insanely good gluten free and vegan cookie dough (that you can find in most Whole Foods or specialty stores). They just happen to be a company that I love very much.
