Chocolate Covered Chocolate Chip cookie dough balls

This isn’t a usual healthy eating recipe that I normally post, but after seeing it on several blogs I couldn’t stop thinking about them and had to try it!

This recipe seems to be sweeping the blogosphere right now, so when I saw it, I knew I was going to make it. Last week I saw it on Year on The Grill. Also Gary from TV Food and Drink made them as well as Joanne from Eats Well With Others, who got the recipe from Annie at Annie’s Eats!!

The cookie dough part I kept the same the only thing I did differently was use a candy chocolate called Almond Bark instead of dipping them in melted chocolate chips.

You can buy this next to the chocolate chips


8 tbsp unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 lb semisweet (or bittersweet) chocolate (I just used Almond bark instead)
1/2 cup white chocolate chips (I didn’t use that)

Combine butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and cream until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes on high speed. Add flour, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla. Incorporate until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm enough to form balls, about 30 minutes.

Take the dough out of the refrigerator and roll into balls. This makes a bunch! I ended up using half the dough and I made 32 balls! I placed them on a cookie sheet covered with foil for easy clean up.

Melt the almond bark in the microwave in a big plastic bowl. Dip the cookie dough ball in the chocolate and swish it around to cover the whole thing. Lift up with a fork and shake off any excess chocolate.

These turned out so great! And the best part is that they are so rich, you can’t keep eating a ton, just one is perfect!

  1. Thanks for sharing! They look amazing! They are going on my “special treat” list!

  2. Yes, you’re right about actually being able to stop after one (or maybe just a couple more, but definitely not the whole pan), plus I think this is a recipe that’s pretty straightforward and fun, so you can definitely get your kids involved in the making of them.

    I cannot make these, because I’m sure I could house the whole batch. I’m all about not depriving myself, but I could do without the upset stomach & sugar coma that would result 🙂
