Chocolate chip cookie dough balls!

Remember when you were a kid and your mom made chocolate chip cookies?  You always had to make sure there was some cookie dough left over in the bowl so you could eat in while the actual cookies baked.  Of course if you are from a younger generation than I am you may not have partaken in this rite of passage because someone came out with a report that eating things with raw eggs, like cookie dough, was possibly bad for you, ie: you might get salmonella.  Well, thankfully, even if you don’t believe the statistics at how rare it is to actually get salmonella (I mean Rocky Balboa drank raw egg shakes while training), here is a recipe that will allow you to enjoy in the delicious treat that is raw cookie dough.  And, these take less time to make than baking cookies, so if you are in the mood for cookies you don’t have to wait 10-15 minutes for the cookies to be done!

The recipe for the cookie dough is from Cupcakeproject.com, and can be found here: http://www.cupcakeproject.com/2009/03/raw-cookie-dough-thats-safe-to-eat.html

I added the melted chocolate for dipping the cookie dough balls into because who thinks you can have too much chocolate?

So, next time you get a craving for cookie dough give these a shot.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of all purpose flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/3 cup of unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup of white sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/8 cup of soy milk (any milk will do)
  • 1/4 cup of chocolate chips
  • 2 ounces of semisweet chocolate, melted
  • 2 ounces of unsweetened chocolate, melted

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except the chocolate.  Stir in the chocolate chips.

Roll into balls and dip in the melted chocolate.  Place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes to allow the chocolate to set.

I want to work on the chocolate coating, by trying other combinations of chocolate and maybe layering various types of chocolate.  I also think mini chocolate chips and toffee chips would make great additions to the cookie balls.  Let me know what you guys try, I will be interested to see how creative everyone gets with these.
