Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Bites

*Disclaimer: We take no responsibility for any extra weight you may gain from consuming these awfully fabulous sweets. Thank you*
Why did I make these this morning at 10 am and then proceed to eat them all throughout the course of the day? Because they are decadent, delicious, and too good NOT to eat….and because I have problems and no will power, but thats a different story.
Now before you all start freaking out about me eating all that raw egg that will make me die of Salmonella poisoning, no fear! There is absolutely no egg in this recipe. As a matter of fact, there’s no milk, cream or any other substance that could be potentially hazardous to my (or your) health!!….except for all that butter…..and sugar…..and chocolate.
But you can take that up with your hiney. (I had my confrontation at the gym today)
Anyways, I must be on a sugar high because I can only think of desserts and sweet treats to make. So pardon me. But, if you are addicted to sugar (like me!) you will be very pleased with these perfect bites of peace love and happiness. I got this idea from a combination of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream and those candies that are called chocolate chip cookie dough bites….or something like that. Its basically just like making chocolate chip cookies except omitting the eggs and the leavenings. Oh, and covering them in chocolate.
Most of the time when I do make chocolate chip cookies, I bake half the dough and I eat/freeze half the dough because I get so sick of baking it all! Well, this way, you’re getting rid of at least half the steps thus decreasing your working time. But honestly, who doesn’t want to just eat the dough anyways? (My father in law makes chocolate chip cookies just to eat the dough. I’m pretty sure there have been times where the oven was never turned on……just sayin’) Well now, you can have no fear of illness after eating these! (Hooray for no eggs!) They are so tasty and so quick to make. The dough literally took me 3 minutes to whip up. If you’re wanting to go over the top, roll out bite sized pieces and dip them in melted chocolate. But, that is totally optional because they truly are great on their own….SEE!:
Perfectly good plain!
Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Bites
Yield: 45 small
Ingredients:
1/2 cup butter, slightly melted and really soft
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
pinch of salt
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (or regular chocolate chips, chopped smaller)
semi sweet chocolate melting wafers
Directions:
Whip butter with sugars and vanilla until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Mix in all dry ingredients including chocolate chips until completely combined. Dough should be moist and slightly crumbly. Roll into desired sizes and shapes. Place on baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Store in refrigerator until ready to coat in chocolate. (If you want to keep them plain, refrigerate them 30 minutes or so until they are hard and can retain their shape and transfer them to a ziploc bag.)
Melt chocolate wafers in microwave or over double boiler. Drop dough balls one by one into melted chocolate. Drizzle chocolate over dough to coat and using a spoon, remove chocolate covered balls, attempting to remove any excess chocolate in the process. Place on waxed paper and chill in the refrigerator until firm. Store in an airtight container on the counter or in the fridge for up to 5 days.

  1. I made up this almost exact recipe for a party a little while ago. I put them on lollipop sticks and called them cookie dough lollipops. Apparently great minds think alike, haha!
