Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites


Edible egg-free cookie dough bites that are sure to please! Deliciously addictive and always the first thing to go at parties!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

Is there anything in the world that’s better than cookie dough? It is definitely one of my favorite foods but words out that regular cookie dough is not safe to eat for a number of reasons.

We’ve all heard of the possibility of salmonella in raw eggs but more recently there have been e. coli scares in raw flour. Yikes. I remember getting recalls in some of the flour I purchased just last year because of that possibility.

I’m not going to lie though, I’m still dumb and live on the edge and eat (small amounts) of raw cookie dough (which obviously I don’t recommend) but when I want to eat a lot, and when I want to serve it at a party or to my kids then I’m all about this edible cookie dough!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

Yes baking the flour first adds more time but it heats it to that temperature past 160 degrees where e. coli couldn’t survive. All this bacteria talk though is such a drag.

Let’s talk more about these delicacies! They taste just like cookie dough but instead of egg they have half and half (or cream).

So they are rich and oh so irresistable. And of course they have plenty of chocolate chips because that’s a main highlight of cookie dough. I like to add two kinds but use what you have.

You could even add in a pinch or two of baking soda if you like that added flavor.

And if you don’t have the patience, skip rolling them into balls and eat the dough straight from the bowl by the spoonful!

Once you try them you’ll be hooked. I’ve made these 3 times in the last month and I’m not stopping!

My kids even found my hidden stash in the freezer and have been eating them frozen. My one daughter said she thaws them under water (lol, gross). I told you though, no one can resist.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

Yield: About 2 dozen

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes


  • 1 1/4 cups (178g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (113g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup (110g) packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup (70g) granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp half and half, then more as needed
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup (130g) chocolate chips (I like a blend of semi-sweet and milk chocolate)

Optional Topping


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle flour evenly onto a rimmed 18 by 13-inch baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven 5 minutes, then remove and let cool completely.

  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment cream together butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar and salt until pale and fluffy about 3 minutes.  

  3. Stir in half and half and vanilla extract. Add in flour and mix just until combined.

  4. Drizzle in more half and half, 1/2 Tbsp at a time, as needed to bring dough together. Mix in chopped chocolate chips (set some aside if you want to press some into top after shaping for looks). 

  5. Scoop dough out about 1 tablespoon at a time and roll into balls. Place on parchment paper. 

  6. Serve immediately or store cookie dough bites in an airtight container in refrigerator.

  • Anonymous: i only have one issue. . . heavy cream isnt the most ready available ingredient in my area, ide have to go to a specialty shop. any alternative at all? June 27, 2012 at 7:37am Reply

  • Jaclyn: Debbie – I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed this and other recipes, that makes my day =)! You’re very welcome, thanks so much for your comment!

    Anonymous – If you can find half and half I would recommend that, if not I would say just use milk but maybe 2 1/2 Tbsp (vs 3 Tbsp) since it’s thinner. Hope that helps! June 28, 2012 at 11:34am Reply

  • Anonymous: your awesome thanks for the ideas June 29, 2012 at 11:26am Reply

  • Anonymous: What could I substitute for the heavy cream. I’m lactose intolerant, but absolutely love cookie dough. Any suggestions? June 30, 2012 at 6:09pm Reply

  • Jaclyn: Anonymous – I think the next best lactose free thing would be non-dairy coffee creamer powder (maybe 1 Tbsp) along with a few Tbsp water. You could even try almond milk, soy milk or coconut milk (although though dough bites won’t be quite as creamy), if you do opt to use one of those I would start with 2 Tbsp then add an additional tbsp near the end if needed since it’s not as thick as cream. Hope that helps! Enjoy! June 30, 2012 at 7:48pm Reply

  • Kate: yummy! I wish I had these right now… but it’s probably a good thing I don’t! ;) September 19, 2012 at 11:58am Reply

  • Anonymous: Will it work with unsalted butter? There’s no way for me to get salted butter here. November 16, 2012 at 8:48pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Yeah that would be totally fine, you may want to increase the salt to 1/2 tsp. I hope you enjoy! November 16, 2012 at 9:41pm Reply

    would you use whipping cream instead heavy cream? (we don’t have heavy here) February 10, 2015 at 12:50pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: That should be just fine. Hope you love them! February 23, 2015 at 6:39pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Thanks Juliana :)! August 13, 2017 at 11:19am Reply

  • Tuxieo: What do you do with the floured sheet since the bites are not being baked? August 13, 2017 at 8:34am Reply

    • Jaclyn: You sprinkle the flour onto the baking sheet then bake it to kill any bacteria in the flour, then let it cool then pour it into the dough as directed. Hope that makes sense. August 13, 2017 at 11:17am Reply

  • Yvelyn: These are absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to try them.

    One issue is that my country doesn’t have half and half.

    May I ask what else can I use and in what portions? Whipping cream? Heavy cream? Thickened cream? Whole fresh milk?

    Thank you so much and hope to hear from you soon. August 14, 2017 at 12:53am Reply

    • Jaclyn: Whipping cream or heavy cream will work here as well. Hope you love them Yvelyn! August 15, 2017 at 4:02pm Reply


    Would coconut oil or vegetable shortening work as a sub for the butter? I may try to make these vegan with almond milk and subbing some coconut oil for the butter…experimentation is fun! August 14, 2017 at 7:40am Reply

    • Jaclyn: Coconut oil should work here as well, I’d definitely go with that over shortening for better flavor. Hope you love them! August 15, 2017 at 4:02pm Reply

  • Ushmana@ourfoodandhome: These cookie dough in the picture look so mellow and tempting!

  • Yvelyn: May I ask, if I don’t have a stand mixer with a paddle attachment and only have a hand held mixer. Would that be a problem?
