Funfetti for everyone!

Yesterday, as I went to answer a comment on facebook, I noticed…

Oh my word!!!

More than 1,200 people like my Facebook page!

I can’t tell you how excited this made me, especially considering the fact that I just made the page like three months ago! But it’s so much more than the number that makes me happy. I hope y’all know by now that I don’t look at my readers and commenters as just numbers. I read every single comment on my blog and really enjoy responding to them and getting to know more about you all! More facebook “likes” means more new friends… and more people with whom to share my love of chocolate! 

How can I ever thank you awesome people who put such a big smile on my face?


I’m virtually sending big hugs, in the form of Funfetti Cookie Dough Balls.

And also a real bear hug…

By the way, this is GG Bear. After my great grandma died, my friends surprised me with her. (You can’t tell from the photo, but she’s more than half the size of me!) Obviously, GG Bear doesn’t replace GiGi (my great grandma). But everyone can always use an extra bear hug, right?

  7. Lauren W. says

    I just found your blog recently, and LOVE it. I keep writing down recipes I neeeeed to make asap. Funfetti cookie dough balls are pretty much at the top…get in mah belly!

  8. Kirsten says

    Congrats, hun!

    Also, that bear is adorable. I used to collect Beanie Babies and Beanie Buddies like a crazy fiend when I was little, and seeing them brings back so many memories.

  9. Jade says

    Congrats! But better yet, just think of all the people to whom you’re donating all those delicious recipes…mmm….

  10. Kati says

    Oooh..funfetti! I couldn’t resist commenting! I love your blog – and I’ve been eating your cinnamon roll baked oatmeal for breakfast almost every morning. Thanks for your great recipes and hard work!

  11. Emily says

    Katie! You are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO beautiful!!! And I’m not just saying that to win the funfetti balls. In fact, you don’t even have to enter me because I live in the UK!

    But I had to let you know how gorgeous you look in that picture! Oh and your bear too.
    🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  12. krickit6 says

    Authentic CCK Cookie Dough Balls?! Oh my gosh, that would be like.. incredible 🙂 People in my office think you are some kind of movie star or something, the way I talk about you! I am so in love with your blog and your recipes, and your genuine kindness for everyone! My husband loves you too, because our fridge is always stocked with some type of Fudge Babies now… lol!

      • krickit6 says

        Yay! My Dad texts me every day to remind me either 1) to smile or 2) to share a smile… So, Im glad I was able to share a smile with you!! 🙂 Enjoy your day!!

    • Carmen says

      krickit6, that’s great. My friends are sick of me talking about “this amazing website I found a few months ago.” They’ve started finishing the sentence… “Oh, you mean that vegan blog about food you tell us about (multiple times) everyday?” They’d be annoyed, except I bring them CCBribes so they’ll let me keep raving about CCKatie… 🙂

  13. Katelyn says

    If I had the pleasure of tasting those scrumptious rainbow filled balls, I would send you a raw/vegan creation of mine in return…can you say halzenut brownies??

  14. Hela says

    Love the bear!! so cute your friends gave her to you.
    I have always thought you looked glowing in every picture, and since I quit eating butter (the last dairy item I was consuming, rarely, though) and going vegan, everybody is making comments about my skin looking so fab and glowing! Awesome, right?! I did notice a change, too.

  15. Aisatsana says

    Congratulations! 🙂 The other night I used your mushroom stroganoff recipe, but changed the spices to make it mushroom curry. So yummy!!!! Thanks for posting the recipe. 🙂

  16. katie k says

    woo hooooo congrats! it must feel great to spread such amazing food and positivity to so many people 🙂

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      LOLOLOL! Oh my word, cannot stop laughing!

      Yesterday, I was in the store with my friend, and she asked me how I was going to decorate these cupcakes (for another friend’s baby shower). Referring to round sprinkles, I said, “Oh , I have these blue balls!” Oops 😕

  17. katie says

    Katie! Congrats on the FB page following! Who could not want to ‘like ‘ you on facebook! I wish I could love you on there!!

    I would LOVE these cookies! Yummy!

    Love you!

  18. Lindsay says

    Ummm, fudge babies from the momma herself?! sign me up! 🙂 Seriously, though I LOVE trying your recipes on the peeps who try to tell me eating healthy is boring and doesn’t taste good…it’s kinda hard for them to keep telling me that while they’re too busy getting 2nds and 3rds!

  19. Dawn says

    Not surprised! You’ve always got such fun, delicious looking recipes! Congrats, and enjoy the many more likes you’ll receive!

  20. Tricia says

    I just started reading your blog and love it. It is especially helpful with the no added sugar recipes….for my young daughter and diabetic husband. Thanks so much for sharing.

  21. sara says

    Stop making me drool!! Haha, no actually..keep it comin. You are the sweetest, I’m so happy for your success and appreciate your genuine interest and passion 🙂

  22. Susie says

    Oh goodness, I’ve been dying to try your funfetti cookies…and everything tastes better when it’s prepared by someone else 🙂

  23. Emily says

    This is gunna sound weird and possibly creepy, but my sister and I were actually talking about you yesterday – you’re just so positive and upbeat all the time, and we love it. 🙂 Oh, and I had voluminous oats this morning! I can’t thank you enough for the technique… I always felt cheated by the measly half-cup of oatmeal I used to make 😛

  24. Emily says

    Oh, and I just “liked” your FB page as well. Can’t believe I didn’t do it before! Congrats on 1,000! 🙂

  25. Lori says

    Those funfetti cookie dough balls look amazing. My girls love your fudge babies – I don’t think I’d get any if I made these! 😉

  26. Jen says

    Congratulations on >1000 likes!
    I just want to say I love how happy you look in your photos when you post them on your blog. Your smile is infectious, even online! I can only imagine how contagious it is in real life! 🙂

  27. Ashley E. says

    Ever since I saw you post about these the other day, I have been kind of obsessed with making some really soon! To win a batch from you would be even better!!! You are a genius with these recipes 🙂

  28. Gen says

    Looove breakfast recipes! Can’t wait for tomorrow! 😀

  31. carrie says

    congrats! i dont go on facebook much anymore but i do follow you on twitter! and i love cookie dough balls 🙂

  32. Jenn says

    Anything with funfetti is GREAT! I just bought some candy-covered sun flower seeds from TJs. Going to make those with sunflower butter this weekend:)

  33. Sarah (becoming-sarah) says

    oOoo Yum! I’ve been meaning to try these out and we all know everything tastes better when you don’t have to make it yourself. 😉

  34. Lorin says

    WIth all the hard work that goes into having a blog, you deserve this success. All your recipes look so delicious!

  35. Gloria says

    Congrats Katie! In celebration, I put a heaping spoonful of cocoa powder in my blueberry banana smoothie this morning 🙂

  36. Jen Robinson says

    I found your blog word-of-mouth through my sister at and i have to say your recipes all look AMAZING. I would love to win some funfetti cookie dough!

  37. Amanda @ the beauty notebooks says

    Just looking at your cookie dough balls makes me happy! Must be the bright sprinkles. Also the bear–everyone could use a bear hug!

  38. Megan says

    I usually lurk on your page, instead of commenting, but they look so delicious, I just had to comment. I love your page!

  39. Whitney says

    Your recipes are great… my favorite so far is definitely your boatmeal! you’ve made my breakfasts so much more fun! 🙂

  40. Marie says

    Aw yay! You definitely deserve it. I’m so glad I found your page recently! Boatmeal has become a family favorite. Banana bread boatmeal this morning… ohhh my goodness, so good.

  41. Kate says

    That’s so nice of you! Your blog definitely deserves to be popular – you are so positive and upbeat all the time 🙂

  42. Molly says

    Hey Katie, you’ve taken my oatmeal to places I never thought it could go. Thanks for all the great recipes!

  43. Melanie says

    Mmm…funfetti cookie dough balls sound delicious right now 🙂

    I’ve got your red velvet pancakes on the menu for the weekend. Can’t wait to try ’em!

  44. Jennifer says

    I love your blog, and your FB page. Funfetti is just icing on the cake. BTW, I’m so excited about your Samoas recipe. I am chomping at the bit waiting for next week so I can hit Whole Foods for the ingredients to make them. I also LOVE your chocolate chip cookie oatmeal. I am a new vegan, started about 2 weeks ago because research told me it was a good diet for diabetes. I am excited that my blood sugar numbers have been great since I started eating this way. (A plus is that my obgyn was totally psyched when I told her I have “gone vegan”, haven’t had the opportunity to tell my GP yet) And it has been super easy with your recipes to give me a starting point. Even my die-hard-meat-eating husband really liked your tortilla soup recipe. And I’ve got so much more energy that I’ve started training for a 5K in 6 weeks. I don’t know if I’ll be up to running it, but I’ll be so thrilled if I can just walk it. Thanks for being an excellent role model! You ROCK!

  45. Haley says

    I want to try these cookie dough balls so badly! I also just wanted to say how much I love your blog. Everything is healthy and easy to make so I love love loveeee it 🙂

  46. Brenda says

    This looks yummy. Well….EVERYTHING looks yummy. i need to start making these AMAZING recipes. today i’m going to try some vegan desserts for my omnivore husband 😀 he is slowly learning to love my new lifestyle and recipes. awesome blogs like me keep me motivated. i’m totally going to like your facebook right. idk why i hadn’t liked it yet. :O

  47. Maya says

    I love your blog and I’d LOVE to taste those pretty treats!

    I already “like” your facebook -it’s a good reminder to check your blog every day!

  48. alexandra says

    congratulations on you 1000 ‘likes’! that’s so awesome! you are amazing and everyone reads your blog because you rock!


  49. Lacey says

    So I just recently discovered your blog and cannot stop reading and checking it everyday! Love it!! Can’t wait to try your recipes.

  50. Lindsay@livinglindsay says

    Katie – I can’t tell you how many times I see one of your recipes and think, “That just CAN’T taste good….can it?” BUT, everything always LOOKS amazing so I try so many of them and they are ALWAYS delicious. You deserve EVERY single “like” you have on Facebook. Your recipes are unique and creative and loved by so many people. Yours is the first blog I check everyday and I’m always excited to see what recipe will be shared. Thank you for making such deliciously healthy treats!!

  51. Tina says

    Congratulations on reaching 1,000! I really appreciate the personal attention you give your readers. Keep up the good work!

  52. Sarah says

    Funfetti and I…
    We go together like peaches in pie.
    I like it more than I like my guy.
    Make me a winner and I just may cry.

    Funfetti and I…
    We go together like bippity goes with boppity boo
    If you don’t like funfetti, I call you a FOO’
    They are naturally delicious and very very cute
    Send me funfetti and I name my first born after YOU!


  53. Crafty lil vegan says

    I’ve got a giant tiger that i always get my hugs from ^-^ My dad made him before i was born so he always makes me feel safe and happy =] And makes me feel like a little kid again, which is no bad thing =D Everyone should embrace their inner child more often! (facepaint, anyone? ^^)
    Congrats on over 1,000 likes! I reckon in less than a month, that figure will have doubled!
    Hugs and love from your CCK-addicted little welsh fan!

  54. Jen says

    Those cookie dough balls look amazing! I still don’t own a food processor or magic bullet, but I keep coming back to your page and looking at all the delicious treats you make with it. Someday!

  55. Jennifer says

    i love checking your blog everyday! you come up with the most creative (and not to mention healthy ;D) desserts that satisfy my craving without the guilt!

  56. Katie says

    I am a new vegan and have found so much inspiration from your site. It was hard for the first few weeks; everyone in my life was constantly on my case about what I was eating/not eating and I was discouraged at times, but never gave up. I made the Cake Batter Milkshake tonight and it was amazing. Hands down, better than anything I ever had with dairy in it! Thank you so much for posting healthy, fun, DELICIOUS recipes that are simple for anyone to make (even those of us who hate cooking!)

  57. Adina Johnson says

    I just wanted to tell you that your recipes are simply amazing! I can’t stop trying all these new breakfast and dessert ideas! Your mushroom stroganoff is a hit with my family! I’ve made it three times in the past 2 weeks 🙂 Thank you for so many easy, great, and especially tasty healthy food !

  58. Elle says

    Your bear is adorable. Everyone CAN use a big bear hug.

    Would love to try your funfetti cookie dough balls.

    I have put your blog on my blogroll.

  59. Brandi says

    Mmmm…I’d love to try either one of your cookie dough balls. Maybe one day you could make double chocolate cookie dough balls?

    I love your stuffed bear! As a child I had a lot of stuffed animals, now I don’t know what to do with them all and find it hard to get rid of them.

  60. Melissa says

    Yummy. Hope I win!!! Your food always looks so amazing. Pretty CRAZY this is the first time I’ve commented! I have made many of your recipes and not been disappointed with any.

  61. Jessica says

    Those little treats look amazing! Ever since I’ve found your site, I’ve 1. asked my parents to get me a food processor as my next gift for any occasion (because I’ve been dying to make your raw recipes) and am so happy that I found a place that I can get healthy and tasty treat ideas so my family can’t say that I always opt out of dessert anymore, instead I can bring my own healthified option that doesn’t taste ridiculously healthy. So thank you again!

  62. Sarah says

    I read this at work.. (Shh don’t tell!) had to wait till I got home to log in to FB and like your page! 🙂 #1121

  63. alain says

    congrats on reaching so many followers on facebook! seeing the picture of you with your bear totally reminds me of Gunther, my first and only Gund bear. He’s been my constant companion for the past 15 years and I don’t see that changing anytime soon!

  64. Tara says

    Awww congrats Katie! You deserve it! Your blog is seriously my go to place for awesome recipes and just because I love reading about your life in general! You seem so positive and bubbly, I just can’t help but be drawn in. You’re the best!

  65. Tara says

    I didn’t need this giveaway to prompt me to “like” you on facebook (obviously I already did!), but it’s a nice way to get another entry 🙂

  66. Nadia says

    I have recently discovered your blog and am ADDICTED to it !!! I try to try one of your recipes eat least every other day. Keep up the good work !

  67. Chocolate-Coated-Runner says

    These balls are awesome. Can’t wait to make ’em

    You could add some other ingredients too:
    mint-chocolate extract– mint-chocolate chip cookie-dough balls
    coconut butter– coconut-chocolate chip cookie-dough balls
    raspberries– raspberry chocolate chip cookie-dough balls
    pumpkin– pumpkin chocolate chip cookie-dough balls

  68. Tabitha says

    I’ve really enjoyed keeping up with and trying your recipes ever since I came across your blog. I love chocolate, too! (Just wish it loved my figure as much as I loved it!) Keep up the delicious work!

  69. Emily says

    My favorite thing about your blog is that you have recipes that make healthy not only taste naughty but also incredibly easy!

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      LOL what’s really funny is that the wall is actually green… and not just ANY green. When my mom was painting the house, a few years ago, I was looking at paint samples and one of the colors said “vegan green.” I BEGGED her to let us paint one of the rooms in this color, so now we have a vegan green guest room! 🙂

  70. Amanda Z says

    Thanks for the giveaway and congrats! Your recipes are amazing and so inventive. And you’ve really amped up your photography recently! Your photos have been gorgeous. 🙂

  71. Lyza says

    AWW this is for sure my favorite picture of you that you’ve posted!!! 🙂 So cute. Thanks for all your sweet posts 🙂 You’re helping vegans unite!

  72. Erin says

    I’ve liked your page for a looong time now! Even before I ever left a comment :).

    Also, I’m so impressed you got so many likes when you’ve only had your page up 3 months. Mine’s been up for AGES and I only have… 200? 🙁

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      Have you tried putting a widget on the side of your blog? When I first made my page, I don’t think anyone had a way of finding it unless I told them (which I was very shy to do!!!). But if you put a widget up, more people will know your page exists :).

  73. sarah marie says

    And I’m one of your facebook fans! I had asked you on your page about doing a version of a samoa, so I was thrilled when you posted one recently! I have yet to try it but it’s on my list of CCK recipes to make asap. 🙂

  74. ThePony says

    I tried my hand at making babies (which, by the way, never stops being funny), and, they are amazing! Also…now I can’t keep my hands out of the dates container. Thanks for reintroducing me to those sweet lil guys!

  75. Catherine @ Running Beginners says

    Gee they look yum 🙂 I’ve been behind on reading after being busy with my sick kidlets – but congrats on reaching 1000 likers! That’s fabulous. I liked you as soon as I found the blog/fb page so can totally understand why they all have 😉 I’m somewhat in awe – being new to blogging I only have 28 likers on fb, and I’m not even sure I have regular readers yet lol. So seeing such huge numbers is inspiring.

    I’ve apparently been talking a lot about your recipes on a forum I chat with other mums on too – I had 3 different mums all of a sudden say – well if you’re going to keep telling us about this yummy healthy food on this awesome blog can you at least give us a link lol – So I shared and now they’re raving about your food too hehe

  76. Hanna M. says

    Must try those funfettis soon! Should get back to baby-making, have a lot of dates just hanging out in the fridge…. 😉

  77. Allison @ Runs A Latte says

    You are so loved…and I know this because I just had to scroll for like 10 minutes to get to the comment form! 🙂

    Don’t be ashamed to mention your loyal following – you’ve worked hard and earned it. You should totally toot your own horn every once a while!

  78. CH says

    Oooo, cookie dough! Sounds yummy. I love blogging/fb/twitter because of the friends I get to connect with. I have a Run, Write, Therapy, Life page that I just started a few days ago!

  79. Beth @ naturallyyoursbeth says

    Congrats on your fb page!! That’s so exciting…you deserve it, your blog is great 🙂 those funfetti cookie dough balls look yummy 🙂

  80. Emily says

    Yum, love those funfetti balls! I saw them two days ago on your blog and made them one hour later! YUMMM! I’d love to have some more in my tummy :).

  81. Diana says

    Katie Kate! I’ve liked your facebook page since the beginning of time! Or, at least since three months ago when you made it :).

  82. Deborah says

    Just tried your cake batter milkshake for the first time and I must say…it was ridiculous…ridiculously DELICIOUS!

  83. Lenna says

    Everytime I see a picture of your hair, I am being really jealous (not in a bad way:). And that bear – lovely! It is always great to have empathetic friends. Actually don´t know what is the prettiest thing in the pictures you posted:)

  84. Diane says

    Hi Katie….first time leaving a comment…and a request 😉
    “Send some motivation to get me running again!”
    Also, what do you do to keep limber after a run? any yoga?

    Love your blog, your bright personality and your extremely creative recipes.
    Your a daily ray of sunshine and sweetness.


  85. Laura says

    Update on Laura’s quest to make everything on CCK: Baked oatmeal! What took me so long? It was delicious!

    Congrats Katie and I can’t wait to keep reading until you reach 5,000 likes 🙂

  86. Samantha O says

    I just made your 24-carrot cupcakes last night and they are AMAZING! I wouldn’t mind me some funfetti balls, though 🙂

  87. Val says

    I was planning on making the funfetti cookies sometime soon, but it would be ok with me if you just sent them to me. haha. They look amazing!

  88. Sarah says

    Thanks so much for all of your awesome recipees and congrats on all the likes. Your page actually helped me switch from vegetarian to vegan over the past few weeks. I’m kind of a chocoholic so you saved me 🙂 lol

  89. Ashley says

    It’s great that you’re gaining so many followers! It means the word is spreading that vegan food is yummy and healthy.

    I liked your facebook page long ago.

  90. McIntosh says

    Just started reading your blog after reading HEAB’s blog and her often citing yours. After reading your mustard, pickle and ice cream tip-making entries (oh my, I sound pregnant….and am so absolutely not!) I knew I found a good one.

    And now…funfetti cookie dough giveaway…YUM! Go 700!

  91. marian says

    i LOVE funfetti – i used to make my own dunkaroos with funfetti icing and teddy grahams. pretty sure your dough balls would be a better alternative now that i dont eat that stuff anymore 🙂

  92. Alexa @ SimpleEats says

    Funfetti is my favorite cake and I couldn’t think of a better way to enjoy it than in dough ball form! 🙂

  93. Ashley says

    I love your recipes! I plan on using one of you carrot cake recipes this weekend for Easter. I just can’t decide which one – 24- carrot cake muffins, or pancakes, or macaroons!

  94. Isabella says

    Are those rainbow colored sprinkles “good for you”? I have been wanting to find some sprinkles without artificial dyes and yucky stuff.

    Have a fabo day!

  95. J says

    Wow, I hope I am not too late to enter. I would love to try some of the treats I read about all the time actually made by you! And who doesn’t like funfetti, especially when all natural?!

  96. djshaw says

    i just came across your blog yesterday, and may i just say how much i absolutely LOVE it! I just think you are so smart and fun, and SO incredibly beautiful inside and out! I can’t wait to try everything on here 🙂
