What’s Needed for This Edible Cookie Dough Recipe

How to Make Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls
Step 1: Place flour in a large bowl. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, stopping every 15 seconds to stir, then stir in salt. Don’t skip this step because microwaving the flour kills any bacteria that may be in it. It’s rare but still better to be safe than sorry, right?
Step 2: Combine butter, white sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in a separate mixing bowl. Use a stand mixer or electric mixer to blend until light and fluffy.
Step 3: Set aside a teaspoon of heavy cream and add the rest to the sugar mixture. Blend until smooth and creamy.
Step 4: Add flour and mix until the dry ingredients are well blended.
Step 5: Fold chocolate chips into the dough and mix well. You can use regular size or mini chocolate chips for these. Refrigerate for two hours.
Step 6: Roll dough into 2 inch balls (you can use a small cookie scoop or do it by hand). Place balls on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Step 7: Place almond bark in a medium bowl and melt in 15 second intervals, stirring in between. When chocolate begins to melt, stir in 1 teaspoon of heavy cream. Continue to microwave in intervals until chocolate is completely melted.
Step 8: Dip cookie dough balls in the melted chocolate, covering completely. Place back on the baking sheet.
Step 9: Once the remaining cookie dough balls are coated, place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator and let chill for an hour.
Once they have dried and are at room temperature, you ‘ll want to move them to the fridge. in an airtight container. They should stay good for up to a week.
Yes! You can store them in an airtight container and freeze for later. I like to wrap them individually so that I can grab one or two when I’m in the mood for a sweet treat or when those cookie dough cravings hit.
Why Do you Microwave the Flour?
Microwaving the flour kills off any bacteria that may be found. It’s rare but there have been cases where people have become sick from raw flour. It only takes a couple extra minutes and I feel like it’s best to be on the safe side!
Is it Safe to Eat Raw Dough?
Who doesn’t love the taste of raw cookie dough? But normal cookie dough contains raw eggs and uncooked flour, which can contain harmful germs. That is the GREAT thing about this recipe for chocolate chip cookie dough bites. it contains no egg, and the flour is cooked, making these a perfectly safe and yummy no bake treat.
Add-ins for these Cookie Dough Balls
Nuts: Slightly roasted almonds, pecan and or walnuts are always a hit.
Chocolate Chips: Add some mini chocolate chips. Dark chocolate, peanut butter chips, white chocolate, you choose!
Toffee Pieces: Crushed up toffee bars are excellent in these edible cookie dough truffles
Nut Butter: Gives these little dough balls a nutty flavor! Add a little bit (about 1 tablespoon) of peanut, almond or cashew butter to the dough.
Flakey Salt: Love a sweet and salty combo? Add a pinch of white flakey salt to the top of each dough ball!

Don't have almond bark? Melt chocolate chips instead.
