No-bake cookie dough balls

No-bake cookie dough balls. Here is a recipe for them:


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour (heat-treated)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Heat-treat the flour: This is an important step to ensure the safety of edible cookie dough, since the eggs are not cooked. There are two ways to do this:

    • Microwave: Place the flour in a microwave-safe bowl and heat on high for 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval. Heat for a total of 1-2 minutes, or until the flour reaches 165°F (74°C).
    • Oven: Spread the flour out on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated 350°F (177°C) oven for 5 minutes, stirring halfway through. Let cool completely before using.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a a time, then stir in the vanilla extract.

  3. Gradually add the heat-treated flour and salt to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.

  4. Fold in the chocolate chips.

  5. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls. Place the balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  6. Chill the cookie dough balls in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving.


  • For perfectly round cookie dough balls, use a cookie scoop.
  • You can substitute other mix-ins for the chocolate chips, such as chopped nuts, pretzels, or dried fruit.
  • The cookie dough balls can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.
