You might want to loosen your belts for this one, ‘cause it’s a doozy. You know that moment when you’re making chocolate chip cookies and slowly, but surely munching on the yummy cookie dough, wondering whether you like that or the baked cookies better? That happens to us every time, but we decided to take things to the next level and make a treat entirely devoted to the uncooked goodness – don’t worry, no raw eggs to worry about here!
These cookie dough buckeyes are sinfully delicious and we can’t get enough of them. The dough is a cinch to make and then all you have to do is dip each adorable buckeye into some melted chocolate and let them all cool. Whether you share these with your friends and family, or accidentally eat most of them before they make it to the table, these bite-sized goodies are one of the best things you’ll make this season!
Cookie Dough Buckeyes
Yield: 2 dozen
- 1 (12 oz.) bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup mini chocolate chips
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup whole milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- In a large bowl or mixer, cream together butter and brown sugar for 2-3 minutes, or until smooth.
- Beat in flour, milk, mini chocolate chips, vanilla extract and salt, and mix until everything is incorporated.
- Using a spoon or a melon baller, scoop out cookie dough balls, roll them in your hands to smooth them out and place them on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
- Freeze cookie dough balls for 15 minutes, or until firm.
- Place remaining chocolate chips in a microwaveable bowl and heat at 20-second intervals, stirring in between, until chocolate is completely melted.
- Spear the side of each cookie dough ball with a toothpick and dip into bowl of melted chocolate until just the top of the cookie dough is uncovered. (Optional: smooth over toothpick hole with your finger.)
- Return cookie dough ball to lined baking sheet and repeat with remaining buckeyes.
- Once you’ve dipped all buckeyes, return baking sheet to freezer so chocolate can set. 15-20 minutes.
- Serve buckeyes immediately or keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
