Cookie Dough Brownie Bites use a homemade, safe to eat cookie dough rolled into a ball and surrounded by a rich and fudgy brownie and covered in melted chocolate to create a large truffle or bite!
Cookie dough and brownies are two of my favourite things! Mixing the two to create cookie dough brownie bites is just perfection!
The idea came to me when I had leftover brownies and I was thinking of different ways I could jazz them up. Cue the craving for cookie dough and here where are!
What I love about bites or truffles is that they are perfect single serving desserts. They’re great to just pick up and eat if you’re on the go, they look gorgeous if you take them to a party and for those of us in a small household they’re great to pop in the freezer and just take out one at a time when the mood strikes.
For the recipe we use one of my favourite brownie recipes that I have used time and time again. This recipe results in a rich and fudgy brownie every single time! I recommend sticking to this recipe as other brownie recipes may be too dry or crumbly to hold the ball shape or be far too fudgy and gooey. For instance I wanted to use my flourless brownie recipe but they are just far to fudgy and gooey to hold their shape in this instance.
We then make my super quick and easy, homemade cookie dough recipe for the cookie dough portion of the recipe. This cookie dough is completely safe to eat with no eggs and options for cooked flour or oat flour instead.
Roll the cookie dough into balls as if you were making cookies and wrap the brownie around the cookie dough, sealing it in the middle. Cover in melted chocolate (whatever chocolate you like) and you have Cookie Dough Brownie Bites or truffles!
As you can see from the photos my bites are rather large! They were actually nearly the size of a tennis ball! Not quite a tennis ball but close.
This recipe made around 14 of that size. To be honest I was playing around with the size so I’ve put recommendations with size in the recipe.
I would say this in that 12 large bites are 12 VERY large bites. I like them big like this but if you are taking them to a party or just want little bites the 24 small is perfect.
I hope you enjoy this recipe and as always be sure to #lightscamerabake on Instagram if you make this or any of my other recipes. I love, love, love seeing your creations!
