If you’ve ever wished you could eat cookie dough right out of the bowl without baking actual cookies, you’ll love these scrumptious cookie dough balls. My girls were absolutely thrilled to make this cookie dough recipe, and it’s a wonder there was any left to make into balls. You can dip them in melted chocolate after their time in the freezer, but my daughters actually preferred them without the chocolate coating.
My 10-year-old felt that they had too many chocolate chips and suggested cutting back a bit, though others felt the chocolate chip amount was just right. I used mini chocolate chips because that’s what I had on hand already, but I’m sure you could use regular-sized chocolate chips. You might also experiment with white chocolate or peanut butter chocolate chips – whatever sounds good to you.

No Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites Recipe
- 1 stick butter, melted
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt (may also use regular yogurt)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup plus 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- dash of salt
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 pound melting chocolate (optional)
Cream the sugar and melted butter together until well mixed.
Add the yogurt and vanilla, and mix until combined.
Add the flour, shake of salt and baking soda and stir well.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Spread a sheet of wax paper or parchment paper over a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan. Scoop spoonfuls of the cookie batter onto the wax paper and make them into approximately one-inch balls.
Optional: If using the melting chocolate, place a toothpick in each ball so that you’ll have something to hold onto when dipping them into the chocolate.
Place the tray in the freezer for an hour and remove. You can now either dig in and start eating the balls, or melt the chocolate and dip the balls to coat them.
In the unlikely event that you have any cookie bites left, they’ll keep for a few days in the fridge.
