Everyone knows that one of the best things about baking chocolate chip cookies is snacking on the cookie dough before it goes into the oven. If that’s your favorite part too, then why not skip the baking altogether and just make the cookie dough? That’s exactly what this Cookie Dough Bite recipe does. Not only is it a time-saver, it also doesn’t contain any eggs, so you’ll avoid the risks associated with eating normal raw cookie dough. You’ll love how easy it is to make, and how great they taste. Whipping up these cookie dough bites is super simple, and coating them in chocolate ups the yum factor—if you can make it that far before eating them all. And did we mention that these make the perfect Valentine’s Day treat?
Chocolate Dipped Cookie Dough Bites Ingredients
1 cup & 2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
6 tablespoons granulated sugar
6 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 to 3 tablespoons water
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 cups milk chocolate chips
Assorted sprinkles (red, white and pink are best)
In a large mixing bowl, combine softened butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Once thoroughly mixed, add vanilla extract and mix more.
In another large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix thoroughly, then slowly add this mixture to the wet mixture in the first bowl. Mix until a dough forms, them work the dough with your hands. When the dough is completely mixed, add 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips and work evenly through the dough. If the dough feels too thick or dry, add a tablespoon of water.
Cover a large cutting board with parchment paper, then place the dough on the paper and spread it out until you have a layer of dough about 1/2″ thick. Place it into the fridge for 20 minutes.
When the dough is chilled, use a cookie cutter (heart-shaped if you have one) to cut out bite-sized pieces. Continue to combine and re-work scraps of dough to ensure you don’t waste any.
After all of the dough has been cut, place 2 cups of chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave them for 15-20 seconds, stir, and repeat until all chips are melted.
One at a time, coat the cookie dough bites in melted chocolate, then place them back on the parchment paper. The chocolate will still be hot, so use a fork to be safe.
Add sprinkles while the chocolate is still warm. Repeat for all cookie dough bites.
