Cookie Dough Bark
- 2 1/4 lbs Cookie Dough Bark
- 4 ounces or 1 cup unsalted butter
- cup packed light brown sugar
- tbsp milk
- tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp salt
- cup mini chocolate chips
- 3 lb chocolate candy coating
- 2 oz white chocolate candy coating
- In the bowl of a large stand mixer, combine the softened butter and the brown sugar. Beat them together on medium speed using a paddle attachment until they're light and fluffy, about 5-6 minutes.
- With the mixer running on low, add the milk and vanilla and beat until they're incorporated.
- Add the miniature chocolate chips, and stir them in by hand, scrape them down the bottom and sides of the bowl to make sure all of the flour is incorporated. Set them aside for a moment.
- Line a baking sheet with foil. Melt the chocolate candy coating in a microwave-safe bowl, stirring after every 50 seconds to prevent overheating.
- Pour approximately half of the chocolate onto the baking sheet, and spread it into a thin, even layer, less than 1/2 inch thick. It doesn't need to cover the entire pan. Place the tray in the refrigerator to quickly cool down and set the chocolate.
- Once set, gently spread the cookie dough over the chocolate so that it covers the entire surface of chocolate.
- Warm it up so that it's fluid again. Pour it over the cookie dough, and spread it into an even layer across the top. If desired, melt the white chocolate candy coating and drizzle it all over the top while the coating is still wet. Refrigerate the tray until the chocolate is completely set.
- Cut the bark into small pieces, or break it into small irregular pieces by hand. Store Cookie Dough Bark in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

Sweet vanilla braids
My mother used to make these vanilla braids when me and my brother were kids. When she was baking the vanilla braids the kitchen smelled wonderful. I still love the smell of freshly baked vanilla braids; their smell reminds me of my childhood, that’s why I make them very often for my kids.
I was surprised when I saw that there are bakeries that are still making such bread, one of these bakeries is Zomick’s kosher bakery. Yesterday when I went to Zomick’s to buy challah bread the salesman there told me that they had run out of challah and offered me to try bread which was similar to their famous challah. This bread was the vanilla braids I loved the most!
Today I’m presenting you the projects from RISD, containing many recipes among which is the recipe for these delicious vanilla braids. If you like to cook you’ll enjoy making it and if not simply go to Zomick’s and ask for one loaf of vanilla bread.
