Two words that just belong together are cookie dough and then when followed with chocolate is a win in my book… who does not like dipping your finger right into a big batch of cookie dough when whipping up your favorite chocolate chip recipe?! We were always told growing up not to eat it because of the raw eggs… but I feel like that’s just a wives tale so as kids we wouldn’t get all hyped up on sugar pre-baked cookies!
I kid I kid… I know eating raw eggs can be risky business.
But that does not keep this little lady from crushing a batch of cookie dough, it just means I’ve had to recreate the dense, chocolate-y, creamy, melt-in-your-mouth, nastolgic mix so that no one gets hurt in the process!
I’ve shared my love for raw cookie dough in the past through lots ‘o recipes including Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bars, Edible Raw Cookie Dough, and Raw Peanut Butter cookie Dough Bars, plus so many more!
So clearly I like to take a classic and incorporate it in any way to get my cookie dough fix!
Another one of my favorite things to whip up in the kitchen is treats that are easy to grab and can be enjoyed on the go and of course guilt-free and JAM PACKED with deliciousness!
That’s why anything that has to do with rolling up in a ball, popping in the refrigerator and allowing time to do it’s thang without having to do much work, but dig in when ready, is a PLUS!
Raw ‘baking’ is kind of like a crockpot, you set it and forget it!
What I’m about to bring you will blow your taste-bud’s FACES off..
Just look at that texture.
….are you drooling yet?!
Ready to get the how-to? Because as always these babies are about to be easy on that waist-line, gluten-free and packed with FLAVAH that you think you’re being naughty!

Place back on plate and when all dough balls have been covered stick back in refrigerator for about 30 minutes again, or until chocolate hardens up!
