Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Balls

Warning! The blog post was written after I consumed large amounts of chocolate and cookie dough…. LARGE FREAKING AMOUNTS! Although I may never again fall asleep, {which is actually perfect since I have a teething 6 month old who has shucked the notion of sleeping} the chocolate covered cookie dough balls were FANTASTIC!

Cookies and Cups, a wonderful blog that I am COMPLETELY obsessed with, inspired the chocolate covered cookie dough balls. I set out to make her Cookie Dough Stuffed Brownie Truffles and FAILED {its okay...I am accustom to failures while baking}. My problem was that I made the cookie dough balls too large, so once covered in brownies, my “little” truffles were the size of pool balls…. a little too gluttonous, even for myself.  So, I ditched the brownies {by ditch, I mean ate them from the pan with a spoon} and just dipped the cookie dough into the melted chocolate. Can't go wrong with that!

Oh, I just wanted to mention that the egg-free cookie dough tasted exactly like the real thing....SINFULLY delicious. 

Here are the Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough balls....

My balls, just chillin' with the Blue Bell ice cream.

Plop! {look at the chocolate trails... I am SO MESSY when I play with melted chocolate!}

Roll it!

Let the excess drip off.

Dry? Cool? Harden? get the point.

Place three balls in a small plastic bag and PROMPTLY give away before you eat them all!
