Mixing Up Cookie Dough

We all know most of us eat or have ate chocolate chip cookie dough before. How can you resist that sweet goodness? Eating chocolate chip cookie dough is part of everyones childhood, isn't it?
I am still guilty of sampling chocolate cookie dough, sugar cookie dough and even my cake batter.  I came across the recipe for Frozen Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough on AllRecipes and I knew I had to make it. First, it is super easy to whip up...it only takes a few minutes. Second, I had some other ideas of how I could use this.
In case you don't know, I am pretty much the only one who eats sweets in my home so I cut the recipe in half. After I mixed the cookie dough I decided to make half into the frozen cookie dough balls, which I dipped into milk chocolate and the other half I made into extra small balls that I can use to add to homemade ice cream as a mix-in.
When was the last time you ate chocolate chip cookie dough?
Here is the link to the recipe I used:

Well Well, look at You Young Lady! LOL I am sure they tasted as Great as they Look:) Aren't you clever indeed!! What do you think of adding a couple tbls of malt, like the kind in the sugar aisle? Just a thought. As if these yummy treats need more flavor. HUH! I will give them a try and my DD will be in heaven! Thanks Sweety for sharing:)

Thanks Patty, I am sure your children will enjoy them. They tasted better the following day. I never noticed malt in the grocery, I will have to keep an eye out for it. :)

Next to the Nestles chocolate milk mix. They have regular and chocolate flavor. It is for malt shakes but why not these? It also is blond color like the dough so no worries there.

Hey Marvel, I grew up on a farm in Iowa! I enjoy visiting my family there each summer.

These look delicious... how do you get your chocolate coating so smooth?
Jan. 23, 2011 12:57 pm
I temper my chocolate so I do not have to refrigerate it to set, it dries within a couple of minutes to a nice hard, smooth finish. Mostly it takes some practice. I coat one ball at a time and lift it out using a fork and tapping off excess. The trick to getting it off the fork, just takes pratice!

Your pics are stellar...can't wait to try this recipe..where can I find out how to temper the chocolate?
Jan. 24, 2011 7:46 am
These look delicious! And the pics you took are amazing! The chocolate looks silky smooth and perfect... Just read your other blog and really enjoyed it :)

I believe AllRecipes has a section on how to temper chocolate but you can also simply type it into an internet search. Tempering means you melt the chocolate to up to a certain degree, let it cool to a certain degree and then slightly warm it up again. I also reserve some chocolate to for seeding which helps with tempering. With tempering the chocoolate dries to touch within just a couple of minutes and requires no refrigeration. I hope that helps! I think most people just melt chocolate, dip, and use the fridge to help set the chocolate.

Small world! I'm in Peosta, IA, grew up on a farm in E. Iowa too! Thanks for the ideas, I think my kids will love these. Can't keep them out of the cookie dough! PS - it's cold here!

SW, oh my gosh, Peosta! It is a small world. I grew up just past Asbury on a farm. I enjoy visiting each summer when the weather is warm and everything is green. I can't say I miss the cold weather though!

cookie dough and cake batter is a favorite in my house!! will try this out for sure!

You can never go wrong with chocolate ship cookie dough batter, right? If you make this, make sure to reserve some dough to make cookie dough pieces for your ice cream!

How did you get your chocolate and the balls so smooth? I make cake balls quite a bit and can't get them that smooth. Thanks!

I am going to post a video on my YouTube Channel showing how I roll the balls, but it is very easy. I use a small cookie scoop to get the general ball shape and I roll them smooth between my palms and drop onto a cookie sheet and freeze so they retain their shape before dipping.
