Recently I had packed some snacks for my husband and I to take on a trip to Texas. Our flight times were odd, so there was no food served. I figured we could just pick at some granola bars, peanuts, fruit and cookies. I have no idea what I was thinking when I packed cookies. Cookies + Traveling = Crumbs. So this poor oatmeal cookie (free sample from Quaker by the way) traveled from Pennsylvania to Texas and back. As I was unpacking, I realized that it was a travel casualty. Being the frugal minded person I am though, of course I didn’t toss it in the trash! The next morning, I simply added it to my vanilla yogurt for a wonderful breakfast!
Here’s some other great things you can do with cookie crumbles:
- Use them as pie crust.
- Sprinkle on top of ice cream.
- Top your cake or cupcakes with the crumbs.
- Dunk fruit into melted chocolate, then roll into the crumbs. Let cool then freeze for a great snack.
- Make “dirt” dessert by layering cookie crumbs with chocolate pudding.
- Mix them into your favorite fruit dip recipe.
- Roll homemade truffles into the crumbs to coat.
- Make homemade ice cream bars using popsicle molds. Coat the bars in the crumbs.
So THAT’s the way the cookie crumbles. And it’s alright if it does!
