They’re sweet and fudgy and kind of dangerous in my house. I seriously can’t stop eating these things!

Why You’ll Love These No-Bake Edible Cookie Dough Bites

Full disclosure: all cookie dough is edible in my book!

But if you need something without raw eggs or just want some peace of mind, I’ve got you covered!

Here’s why this recipe is a must-make:

Quick Treat: As the name suggests, this recipe involves zero oven time. And they only need about 30 minutes to chill once rolled. 

Egg-Free Snacking: Since we don’t need these to rise in the oven, there’s no need for eggs! So you can enjoy the delicious taste of raw cookie dough without any safety concerns.

Make Them Your Own: Get creative with mix-ins. Try different types of chocolate, chopped nuts, dried fruit, or even sprinkles to customize the flavor.

Party Perfect: Wow your guests with these cute, pop-able treats at your next gathering. They’re sure to be a crowd-pleaser!

Here’s what you’ll need to make these yummy cookie bites:

  • Salted Butter: The creamy base that binds the dough together and adds rich flavor. Feel free to use unsalted butter if you prefer.
  • Light Brown Sugar and Granulated Sugar: This duo makes chocolate chip cookies so incredible! So, for that signature taste, use both.
  • Vanilla Extract: Infuses the dough with a warm, irresistible aroma and classic cookie flavor.
  • All-Purpose Flour: Heat-treated for safe snacking, it provides structure to the bites.
  • Cream (or Milk): Just a splash keeps the dough moist.
  • Mini Semisweet Chocolate Chips: Bursts of chocolate in every bite-sized morsel.

How to Make No-Bake Cookie Dough Bites

I almost always have a stash of these in my fridge or freezer for when those cookie dough cravings hit. 

They’re also great for sharing with friends and family – if you can bear to part with them!

And luckily, they’re a cinch to make! Here are the steps:

1. MICROWAVE. Pour the flour onto a plate and microwave for 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute. Let it cool completely before proceeding.

2. BEAT the butter and sugars until smooth. Add the vanilla and cream and beat again until fluffy.

3. STIR. Add the flour and mix gently. Stir in the chocolate chips just before all the flour is blended.

4. CHILL. Portion, roll, and chill the balls for at least 30 minutes before enjoying.

Tips For the Best No-Bake Cookie Dough Bites

I had so much fun developing this recipe, and I can’t wait for you to try it!

But before you get mixing, I have a few tips to keep in mind:

Enter your email below & we'll send it straight to your inbox.
  • Soften the butter. If you gently press the surface, your finger should leave an indent, but it shouldn’t go through into the block – that’s too soft, and you’ll have to chill the balls for longer before enjoying.
  • Use a cookie scoop or a small ice cream scoop. It guarantees evenly sized dough balls.
  • Don’t skip the heat treatment. It kills any harmful bacteria, making the flour safe to consume raw. If you don’t have a microwave, bake the flour on a sheet tray at 350°F for 5-10 minutes (until it reaches 165°F).
  • Adjust the consistency. Depending on the flour brand, you might find the dough too stiff or too soft. Feel free to play around with more milk or flour, as needed. 
  • Pair with ice cream. Crumble cookie dough bites over your favorite ice cream for a delicious sundae topping.
  • Gift them. Dip or drizzle them with melted chocolate and add a sprinkle of sea salt. Package them in cute bags or boxes and share with friends and family for a sweet homemade gift.
  • Blend into milkshakes. Toss a few cookie dough bites into your next milkshake or smoothie for an extra indulgent treat.

Recipe Variations

As mentioned, you can easily add different mix-ins to make these your own. But that’s not the only way to tweak this recipe!

  • Make it vegan. Use vegan butter and chopped dairy-free chocolate. 
  • Go gluten-free. Use a blend of almond flour, oat flour, and gluten-free flour. I suggest 1/2 cup each almond and oat flour. Then, top it up with gluten-free flour as needed.
  • Add nut butter. Skip the butter and use peanut, almond, or cashew butter instead. 1/2 cup should be enough as it’s much thinner than butter. Add more as needed.
  • Go sugar-free. Swap in Stevia (to taste), or use 1/3-1/2 cup maple syrup.

How to Store

This recipe makes a pretty big batch. Even my family can’t devour them all at once!

But the good news is, they store really well in the fridge and freezer. Here’s what you need to know:

To Store: Keep the cookie dough bites in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. Enjoy chilled or at room temperature.

To Freeze: Place leftovers in a freezer-safe container or bag and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight or at room temperature for 15-20 minutes before enjoying.
