Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Bites Recipe

It is time to discover how to make edible chocolate chip cookie dough bites.

Doing so involves two steps: making the edible cookie dough bites and making the chocolate coating to go on them.

  • Author: Anna
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Category: dessert

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/4 cup heat-treated flour (see instructions below)
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 8 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup milk

For the chocolate coating

  • 1 cup hardening dark chocolate or milk chocolate (for melting)

Instructions

How to Make Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

  1. Heat treat your flour. Before you do anything, it is important that you do this step first. Doing so kills the bacteria on the flour so that you do not get sick.
  2. To heat treat your flour, spread your flour evenly on a baking sheet and cook in a preheated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 5-10 minutes. Be careful not to burn.
  3. Allow the flour to cool completely before using it in your cookie dough recipe.
  4. Combine your powdered, brown, and white sugars in a bowl. Add to this your flour and cornstarch. Mix until combined.
  5. Using a wooden spoon, spatula, or hand -mixer, mix your butter and vanilla extract into your dry ingredients until it is fully incorporated (the dough will be crumbly. This is normal!)
  6. Fold in your chocolate chips.
  7. From here, add a bit of milk until you reach the desired consistency. For me, this was around 1/4 cup of milk. Adjust this amount as needed.
  8. Using a tablespoon, begin to portion your dough and roll into balls. Place the rolled balls onto a prepared baking sheet to be chilled in the refrigerator. 
  9. Chill the cookie dough balls for about 15 minutes.

How to Coat the Cookie Dough Bites in Chocolate

  1. As your dough chills in the refrigerator, follow the directions for your hardening chocolate to melt.
  2. Once melted, roll your cookie dough truffles into the melted chocolate, being sure to allow the excess chocolate to drip off.
  3. At this stage, you can also apply sprinkles or mini chocolate chips to the outside of the dough balls.
  4. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
  5. Enjoy your chocolate chip cookie dough bites in chocolate dipping sauce!

Notes

  • If you find the dough balls too crumbly, you can either add a tad more milk or simply pack the dough together in your hands without rolling and place on the baking sheet. After the dough has been refrigerated, you may find it easier to roll into balls. You can also use a cookie scoop to scoop your cookie dough.

If you’re counting calories and want to know how many calories are in chocolate covered edible cookie dough, know that there are roughly 100-150 calories in 2 tablespoons of standard dough bites.

Because cookie dough is often portioned by tablespoon and then hand-rolled into balls, you may expect two cookie dough balls to be the equivalent of 100-150 calories.

Of course, how many calories in different types of chocolate covered cookie dough bites will flex and flow depending on the ingredients used in the recipe. While many cookie dough recipes contain butter, some call for other fats such as olive oil, coconut oil, or even vegan butter. All of these substitutes will yield a different calorie count in the final product.

Thus, it can be hard to definitively say how many calories are in different types of chocolate covered cookie dough bites.

Remember that most chocolate covered cookie dough bites won’t be healthy. This is due to the excess chocolate, butter, and sugar involved in the recipe.

Still, some recipes will fare better than others in terms of nutrition as demonstrated in the recipes above.

If you are looking to lighten up your chocolate covered cookie dough balls, be sure to make the proper substitutions when necessary. Though we’ve provided you with a healthy edible chocolate chip cookie dough recipe, it’s important to note that you can always swap ingredients in the original recipe in order to customize it to your diet.

Popular ingredient swaps for cookie dough balls include:

  • Sugar-free (or dairy-free) chocolate chips
  • Vegan butter
  • Gluten-free flour
  • Raw sugar (instead of white granulated sugar)
  • Sweetener (like erythritol, instead of sugar)

Note: Never use coconut flour for all-purpose flour at a 1:1 ratio. Substituting coconut flour for all-purpose flour may ruin your recipe, as these types of flour do not make good cup-for-cup substitutions when baking.

Once you’ve made chocolate covered cookie dough balls, feel free to store them in an airtight container for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months at best quality. Note that the cookie dough balls will remain edible after 3 months in the freezer.

All in all, chocolate covered cookie dough bites are surprisingly easy to make and taste great! They also freeze well, so they make an excellent late-night snack too munch on.
