Tips for this recipe
Now, I didn’t have any trouble with the dough being too sticky for rolling. But, if you are experience this problem you can chill the dough for 30 minutes in the fridge. Chilled dough is more malleable and less sticky to handle.
Alternatively, if you’re noticing that your hands are getting sticky after rolling a few balls, I recommend to wash your hands, wipe clean and continue. I do this often when making cookie recipes (raw or baked). Clean hands make for easy rolling.
Finally, if any chocolate chips fall out of the dough balls while rolling, you can stick them onto the surface of the finished balls at the end.
How long do these cookie dough bites keep?
These cookie dough bites will keep in the fridge for up to 10 days. Store in an air-tight container.
