Thank you to Disney for inviting me to a Avengers Endgame press screening #AvengersEndgame
Celebrate the final Avengers movie with these Avengers Cookie Dough Pops!
I’m not the greatest at saying goodbye to things. And that includes movie franchises that have been around for over a decade!
It really feels like the end of an era. It’s hard to believe that this Avengers story line is coming to a close. Thankfully, you know what helps when facing a difficult reality? Chocolate. And cookies. But I’ll get to that in a minute.
Let’s be honest, you don’t need me to tell you to see Avengers Endgame. It’s amazing, epic, insert all of the adjectives here. I loved it. I laughed, I cried, I clapped and cheered, I felt all the feelings. It gave me more than I expected. Life isn’t a neat little package, but it wrapped up in a beautifully satisfying way.
The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”
Before You See Avengers Endgame
Before seeing Endgame you will need have seen the movies I included on that list and you will need to Captain Marvel.
If you have time to see Ant Man and the Wasp that will add some additional detail as well, but it’s not as important as seeing Captain Marvel.
There is no bathroom break
Sorry, y’all. The movie picks up right where Infinity War ends and is action packed the entire time. Every scene is pivotal. Go to the bathroom right before the movie starts and go easy on refreshments. You bet there was a bathroom line when the movie ended as we all rushed out of the theater.
Avengers Endgame delivers.
Yes, it is worth all of the hype.
Yes, fans will be satisfied.
And really, I can’t say much more than that! I completely understand why the stars and everyone involved in the film have been so tight-lipped. I want fellow Marvel fans to enjoy the film unfolding spoiler free as much as I did, so I don’t want to give anything away. But I’m really, truly happy. And yes, I will be seeing it again!
Is Avengers Endgame Appropriate for Kids?
Teenagers, yes. And I will let my 9 year old watch it at home. But it is rated PG-13 and it is 3 hours long. There are some swear words, violence, and it is a long time for younger kids to sit in the theater without needing a break or two. Use your best judgment. I always recommend seeing a film first and then deciding if it’s appropriate for your own kids.
Avengers Cookie Dough Pops
Last year for Avengers Infinity War I created some Superhero Macarons. This year, for Endgame, I’m putting together Cookie Dough Pops.
Start with your favorite cookie dough recipe. Technically you should use an egg-less cookie dough dip recipe. I chose a sugar cookie dough because I’ll be adding chocolate in a bit, creating a chocolate chip cookie dough flavor. Roll the cookie dough in small balls and insert candy sticks. Pop the cookie dough balls into the freezer to harden while you work on the next steps.
Melt one bowl of white chocolate chips and a second bowl with dark or milk chocolate chips. Follow directions on your chocolate for melting. As a general rule I melt white chocolate in 20 second bursts, stirring in between, and dark or milk chocolate in 30 second bursts.
Prepare a pan with a sheet of wax paper. Once your cookie dough is firm and white chocolate is melted, dip the cookie dough into the white chocolate. Place the dipped cookie dough on the wax paper and allow to set. You can place in the refrigerator to set quicker.
Fill a piping bag (or resealable bag) with the milk chocolate. If you use a resealable bag just snip a corner so you can pipe from the bag. I printed out a sheet with the Avengers A on it and then laid a piece of wax paper on top. Pipe your chocolate onto the outline you printed and allow to completely set. (I popped my A’s into the freezer.)
With your A’s ready to go I piped a smidge more milk chocolate onto the back of each A and then attached it to my cookie dough pop.
For some variety I also made a few cookie dough balls, minus the candy sticks, and piped chocolate lines over the top.
My tray of Avengers Cookie Dough Pops is ready to serve!
It tastes like chocolate chip cookie dough! A true comfort food if there ever was one.
