5 Twisted Ways to Chocolate Chip Nirvana

Your must-have essentials: chocolate chips, chocolate chips, and more chocolate chips! These tiny chips of heavenly goodness are quite possibly the secret ingredient to dessert enlightenment... chocolaty morsels actually made from the tears of a unicorn? Maybe. In celebration of National Chocolate Chip Day (yesterday), we're getting majorly chip-faced with these five creative twists on a quintessential American dessert fave, the chocolate chip cookie.

 

Chocolate Chip Cannoli

Cannoli on a gluten-free diet? Well that's practically unheard of. This cookie version, made with gluten-free pizzelles, can be enjoyed by everyone. Add additional chocolate mini-chips on the ends for garnish, if you like.

Chocolate Chip Cream Puffs

A light, fluffy center fills these dreamy and creamy chocolaty puffs. Studded with morsels and drizzled with a silky, cocoa glaze -- this must be what dreams are made of.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough for One

Dessert for one? No prob! You don't need to bake a whole batch of cookies to get a taste of the good stuff. This personal-sized batch of chocolate chip cookie dough is just enough to satisfy your sweetest tooth.

Chocolate Chip Waffles

Fluffy Chocolate Chip Waffles are kid-friendly and quick to make. These sweet dessert waffles will have everyone at the breakfast table asking for more!

Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

This isn't your average cookie -- A gooey skillet brownie topped with scoops of vanilla ice cream and drizzled with melted peanut butter and rich chocolate syrup– what could be better?
