Cookie Dough Bites are decadent, chocolatey and delicious. I bet you can’t eat just one! These are so tasty and so quick to make. The dough literally takes just a couple 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. Think of these like my Chocolate Chip Cookies but without the eggs, making them totally safe to eat raw!
Cookie Dough Bites | No Eggs Required
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.
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!)
Main Ingredients Needed
Here is what you’ll need to gather up to make these cookie dough bites. 3 different kinds of sugars help make these sweet and moist! Mini chocolate chips work best in these little bites. If you don’t have them on hand, you can use regular chocolate chips and chop them up a bit.
- Butter- slightly melted and really soft
- Granulated sugar + brown sugar + powdered sugar- yes, you need all 3 sugars to make these sweet and moist!
- Salt- helps balance out all the sweet in this recipe.
- Vanilla extract– for flavoring
- Flour- helps give these cookie dough bites some filling and volume.
- Mini chocolate chips- or regular chocolate chips, chopped smaller
