Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites are sinful morsels that melt in your mouth and are ready faster than traditional cookies.
These cookie dough bites are a no-bake dessert that is so easy to make. They are made with edible cookie dough and can be served plain or dipped in chocolate. Either way, they are irresistible.
These cookie dough bites are delectable sweet treats that are easier than making a batch of chocolate chip cookies, but just as satisfying. If you love edible cookie dough you will love them.
We are no strangers to cookie dough around here and also love to make Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites, Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough Bites, and Funfetti Sugar Cookie Dough Bites.
But for the edible chocolate chip cookie dough, all credit goes to my daughter, Jersey, for the sweet recipe. She loves to make them and at this point has perfected the recipe.
They are sweet, sinfully rich, and melt in your mouth. They are like a cookie met a truffle to make a delicious sweet bite. And that’s what you get with these cookie dough bites.
Easy Edible Cookie Dough
- This recipe is as simple as making chocolate chip cookie dough but without eggs. Leaving the eggs out keeps these bites safe to eat.
- You only need one bowl and all you do is mix, scoop, and chill the dough balls. So easy.
- When we’re feeling fancy we dip them in chocolate for a special touch. This is especially nice if you plan to give them away. We also love them plain.
- They are best when they are cold from the refrigerator and keep well for up to five days.
- Powder sugar
- Melted butter
- Brown sugar
- Granulated sugar
- Vanilla extract
- Mini chocolate chips
- Dark melting chocolate – this is optional for a chocolate coating.
How to make Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites
In a medium-sized bowl, sift together brown sugar, granulated sugar, powdered sugar, flour, and cornstarch. Beat in melted butter and vanilla extract until it starts to come together, the dough will resemble coarse crumbs.
Stir in mini chocolate chips.
Mix until dough slightly sticks together, but it will still look crumbly.
Add in milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until it is easier to work with and you get the consistency you want.
I use a 3/4″ cookie scoop to make the balls. That way, they are all the same size. If you don’t have a cookie scoop, you can scoop a heaping tablespoon.
The best way to form them is to pack in the dough and then remove from the scooper or tablespoon and place them on the prepared pan.
You can also roll them into balls, but I find sometimes the balls fall apart easily if I press too hard. Place pan in the refrigerator for the bites to chill for approximately 10 minutes.
While the dough is chilling, melt chocolate according to package directions. I heat it in 30-second intervals until the chocolate is completely melted. Our favorite dipper chocolate is the Ghiradelli’s hardening chocolate that is available at Kroger or Safeway
Decorate with the chocolate how you could like, I like to dip the tops in, then sprinkle with mini-colored chocolate chips. The kids like a light drizzle which is easy to do by placing the melted chocolate in a Ziploc bag with the corner snipped off, topped off with a few sprinkles. Although my daughter, Jersey loves them plain.
Once the bites are drizzled, covered or dipped in chocolate and finished off with sprinkles allow chocolate to set and harden.
Now they are ready to enjoy!
Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
We seem to find any reason to indulge in these Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites. I think you will, too! Make them for you, your family, or make a batch and give them away. Each bite is a sweet one that no one can resist.
Enjoy! XOXO San

Thank you for linking back, Sandra! Looks great!
Haha, I thought my husband was cheap, but I’ve never seen him squeegee himself! Love it.
LOL! That is awesome, yes, my husband…the things you learn when you get married. xo
Angie Vogt says
Not sure about the brown sugar…it says “6 tablespoons cup brown sugar.” Is that a typo or is it 1 cup PLUS 6 tablespoons?
Angie – thanks. It is only 6 tablespoons, is because I revised my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe for this. Enjoy! xo San
These look REALLY great! I am loving the sprinkles.
There flour in the recipe. Why can not cook?
I’m dying to try out this recipe! Sounds absolutely amazing.
Thank you ,I will try to do it.
I have never tried cooking , These cookies looks awesome!
Visiting from SoFab – these look yummy! Pinned. 🙂
When I made these my dough did not crumble I mixed it exactly like it says and it turned into a actual dough like substance not crumble. DID I MESS UP SOMEWHERE? ?????
I don’t think so???
It looks to me like you could adjust this recipe replacing some ingredients to make this a Ketogenic Diet friendly recipe. Erythritol and coconut sugars, almond and cleaning coconut flours, cream for milk, sugar free chocolate chips, etc.
Problem. When I took the butter out of the microwave and dumped it in the mixture all the morsels melted…. oh well. Try try again.
These are just adorable! Perfect for summertime snacking or sharing. Or just snacking. 😉
Megan @ MegUnprocessed says
This is creative!
Seriously, I laughed so hard when you described your husbands ‘frugality’. I am married to his clone! Right down the the flip cell phone without a text plan 🙂
These cookie dough bites look scrumptious! You hit my weak spot. I may have to go make a batch later in my own kitchen. yum!
What icing do you use
Is this self rising flour or plain??
If we adding Flour to the dough don’t they need to be cooked ?
I just made this recipe. I followed it exactly how was stated. I read the comments and how someone’s dough came out more like dough and not crumbly. You have to just incorporate the ingredients until they become just “crumbly” if you mix to long it will turn into “dough”. I only needed 1 Tbls of milk and gently mixed. I used a small cookie scoop and put them in the fridge while I melted the chocolate chips. They came out great. Yes they are sweet because that is the whole point , it’s cookie dough bites. This recipe was very easy and delicious. I will be making them again
Would nuts go well in this?
This was a hit in our house! so yummy!
An easy tasty snack, had some dipped in chocolate and I couldn’t stop eating!
Amanda Livesay says
We are OBSESSED with these. They’re perfect for keeping in the fridge when you want a quick sweet bite.
Allyson Reed Zea says
These are the best cookie dough bites I’ve tried! Love them!!!
These are the perfect no-bake treats! I can’t wait to try them.
My kids will go crazy over these bites! They look amazingly delicious!
I made a big batch and froze them for “emergencies”! SO delicious!
I have those emergencies everyday, lol.
These are addictive – be careful 🙂

Well, we’ve all seen the “Overnight Oats” craze. It surprised me to learn that you don’t have to cook rolled oats in order for them to be edible, so a lot of “bliss ball” recipes use food processor ground rolled oats. I can’t believe the recipe here doesn’t call for toasting the flour for safety reasons! Because many times, I have seen warnings on bags of flour in the States, “do not eat raw flour!”
But oats are steam processed, and safer.
