Coconut Avocado Pistachio Stacks and Chocolate Chip Cookie Bark with Enjoy Life's Cookies and their NEW Look!


Enjoy Life is one of my most favorite products, and here they are sporting a new look!  

When I received this box of Enjoy Life cookies, my whole family was thrilled!  
Now, it was time to try something new!


 

We made these absolutely wonderful Coconut Avocado Pistachio Cookie Sandwiches!
We used Raia's Recipes for our filling and topped them with Enjoy Life's Double Chocolate Cookies!

Filling:
1 avocado
1/4 cup honey
6Tbsp coconut oil
1-1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
3/8 tsp pistachio extract

Place the avocado, honey, coconut oil, and extract into a high speed blender (Vitamix or Blendtec) until smooth. Place into a bowl and stir in the shredded coconut.  (I used finely grated coconut.)  Line an 8x8 baking dish and pour in the filling. Spread into an even layer.  Place in the freezer until hardened.  Cut into circles.  Sandwich the filling between two Enjoy Life Double Chocolate cookies and serve.
YUM!

*If you wanted to make these grasshoppers,  just add the peppermint extract instead like Raia's recipe suggests.



Next, up was the cookie stack flop!
Okay... I have to confess that this was a beautiful disaster.  I made coconut whipped cream and totally messed it up!  I broke a beater, and thought,"Why did I decide to get into the kitchen today?"   I used my "unfluffy" cream, mixed in chunks of Enjoy Life Chocolate Chip cookies, and froze until hardened.  Cut into squares and Viola! Cookie bark!  Super simple with extraordinary taste!

I have thoroughly enjoyed my Enjoy Life box with its BRIGHT new packaging.
And I am still loving the same GREAT taste!
