My oven is working over time right now. It's constantly on. I honestly put oven mitts on my hands to go outside because I thought they were my actual mittens. Time to get out of the kitchen, don't you think?
Things that have been in my oven in the last week:
Granola, a turkey, squash, random vegetables, muffins, date squares, garlic, pie, cookies, fish, cupcakes, play-doh (don't ask), appetizers...you get my drift. My oven needs a break.
Screw the oven-I don't want to sweat anymore while I'm standing in the kitchen.
Enter NO-BAKE cookie dough bites. That's right. The joy of cookie dough without the raw egg or the effort of baking sheet after sheet. Just shove-it-in-my-mouth goodness. Covered in chocolate. Stress eating, here I come!
Oh-and you can eat these if you're vegan or gluten-free, and a quick switch these can be made dairy-free as well. Happy cookie dough scarfing!
In a food processor, place all ingredients except chocolate
Buzz that up. Scrape the sides. Let it whirl until creamy
Let sit in the fridge for 30 minutes to set up
Melt chocolate in the microwave (SLOWLY!) or in a double boiler over the stove
Using a teaspoon, make balls out of dough and roll in melted chocolate
Place on a wax paper covered baking sheet
Place in fridge for 30-45 minutes, until hardened
Assume superhero pose because you're awesome and so are these bites
This will make somewhere between 25-50 balls depending on the size. You can also freeze half of this dough so it's ready anytime. You know, for company, or a really sad Christmas movie-anything that requires cookie dough.
