Peanut Butter Fudge Cookie Dough Bites

These lovely sweet, chocolatey cookie dough truffles are perfect for any sweet-tooth.

I am not a chocolate lover.  There, I said it.  I’ll eat it, but don’t love it like some people do.  But when I want some chocolate, brownies are where I turn.  You might be asking yourself why I’m talking about brownies when the post is titled “…cookie dough bites.”  There is reason.  Read on.

I  recently found a recipe for brownie cookies; just the look of them had me hooked.  I’m the person who wants to eat the chewy edges around the brownie pan and leave the inside for everyone else.  These cookies seemed like the perfect way to enjoy that chewy edge.  We’re getting there, hang with me.

I also have a weird affinity for raw cookie dough.  I know raw eggs are bad for you.  I know, I know.  But I’ve been eating cookie dough for years and I’ve never had any trouble.  (I’m knocking on wood as I type this!)  But I keep seeing posts and recipes and pins for cookie dough truffles and cookie dough dips.

And so was born and idea for brownie cookie dough bites.  So I played with the recipe, took the eggs out, and there we had it.  But my husband and a couple of our friends all agreed that they tasted more like no-bake cookies than like brownies.  EVEN BETTER, I thought.  Since you endured this story, your reward is sweet, addicting and chocolatey cookie dough bites, and even if you don’t like chocolate, you’ll adore these little guys.

Sweet, chocolatey cookie dough truffles. Perfect for any sweet-tooth!


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 ounce unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour

  1. Combine butter and both kinds of chocolate in a heavy saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until butter and chocolate melt. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and vanilla. Mix until combined.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk milk and sugar together. Add to chocolate/peanut butter mixture. Combine flour and salt in a small bowl and add to the liquid ingredients and mix until well-combined.
  3. Scoop and roll dough into 1-inch balls and place onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until set, about 60 minutes.
