No Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

When I was a kid, a favorite childhood memory of mine was when my mom baked cookies and I got to use my finger to swirl around the big bowl and eat up all the leftover cookie dough.  I almost think the cookie dough tasted better than the actual cookies.  These days, we’re so worried about uncooked eggs and salmonella that my kids haven’t experienced that yummy thrill before.  One of their favorite foods however is chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream so they get to indulge that way.

The little balls of cookie dough are made without eggs so they’re safe to be eaten just as they are.

A delicious idea for these no bake chocolate chip cookie dough balls, are to add them your pancake of choice! I made up a batch of cookie dough the day before, rolled them into little balls and placed them in the fridge to firm up a bit.  In the morning, I used my instant pancake mix recipe and mixed up a quick batch pancakes. While the pancakes were on the griddle, I dropped a few cookie dough balls onto each pancake.

I loved how the cookie dough softened in the pancake when it warmed up from heat of the griddle.  It tasted just like a chocolate chip cookie pancake.

There are limitless possibilities for these little cookie dough bites.  When rolled into balls, they’re a great little snack when you want something small but sweet, and we’ve even put them into homemade vanilla ice cream. When we haven’t rolled them, the dough makes a great dip (just add a spoonful of water at a time until you get the perfect consistency) and use graham crackers to scoop.
