Baking was the hardest thing for me for many years. I really like baking and I always did but something just didn’t work. I love creativity and I always try to make something of my own but it doesn’t work with baking. This process requires patience, precision, trial and error before you get the result that you want.
When I choose a recipe that I want to change and experiment with, I usually try to make it 5 or 6 times before I get the result that I want. With baking, it can be 10 times or even more. In the past, I just gave up on trying and though I would never be able to bake and I should admit that. I didn’t like that foods ended up in garbage for being so bad. With everything I have said, no-baked recipes that come together in less than 10 minutes are my favorites! I can bake much better than in the past now, but this cookie dough bites are still a regular guest in my house. I’m sure you’re going to love them because they are so delicious.
A week ago I was making my regular chocolate chip cookies and I couldn’t stop snacking on the dough. However, it had raw egg and I didn’t feel good about eating it. But I thought I should search for a recipe without eggs that I can eat as much as I want. After a little research and experimentation, I came up with this idea. This recipe is super easy to make, even a child can do that. The dough has the perfect chewy texture and the taste is amazing! The dough is easy to roll in balls or individual bites, or you can get creative and make any shape you like. There is no baking and the level of sweetness is just perfect. You can use your favorite chocolate or maple syrup to get the most delicious treat you put together in 10 minutes.
If you’re throwing a party of have a family dinner, cookie dough bites can be one of the treats you serve them. Since they are so quick and easy to make you will have plenty of time to prepare more complex foods. If you’ve tried Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, this is how these bites taste like. Of course, you don’t have to use peanut butter and can only add chocolate chips in there. You can also add white chocolate chips or any sweet thing that is the size of the small chip.
You can easily turn these bites into energy bars by adding nuts or dry fruits. And it’s not like dough that you make for chocolate cookies, this is much better. This has a more interesting texture and much more flavor. Don’t eat raw eggs and risk your health, just find 15 minutes for this recipe. And these are better than store-bought Reese’s cups because there are no added sugars and chemicals.
These cookie dough bites are nothing short but irresistible. If you, your children or your friends like sticking fingers in dough bowl, then this recipe is for them. This is a great snack and you can make these the night before. These bites are freezer friendly and taste even better after some hours in the fridge. Make them now and eat them when you want!
