No-bake chocolate chip cookie dough bites recipe

Inspired by Picky Palate

Yields 18-20 bites


  • 1 stick (or 8 tablespoons) unsalted softened butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips (you can also use regular)


  1. In a mixing bowl add the white and brown sugar and the butter. Beat the mixture on high until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. Add in the vanilla, salt, chocolate chips and the flour, making sure the ingredients are well combined.
  2. With a cookie scoop or spoon, scoop out the dough and begin rolling into bite-sized balls trying to keep each the same size. Place the balls on a platter and serve at room temperature. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
