Before {and while} I became a teacher, I owned and operated a small deli in my home town, The Happy Horse.  The best selling dessert was always the cookie dough brownie.

There were times when I would sell over 100 of those chocolate chip cookie dough brownies.  With a population of around 2000 people…that is a whole lot of brownies!  I would go home at night and dream about them because I made them so much.

So I just couldn’t wait a minute longer to add a version of them here on Practically Homemade.  As you know, cookies are my jam!  So a cookie combination was definitely the way to go.

Baking the cookie dough in a mini muffin pan was such a great idea because it created the perfect little cup to hold the dough.  

Making the Cake Mix Cookie Dough Bite in a Mini Muffin Pan

To make the cookie dough, combine your cake mix {be sure to whisk the dry mix and remove any lumps},  2 whisked eggs and a stick of softened butter with a hand held mixer.  I have also done this by hand and that works too.

Using a small cookie scoop, scoop mounds of cookie dough into the cups of your mini muffin pan.  Be sure that you have sprayed each cup generously with non-stick spray.  I like to take my fingers and pat the dough down into the cup, so that it is level.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 8-9 minutes.  Remove from the oven and let them cool for a couple of minutes.

To remove them from the pan, run a knife around the edge of the cookies while they are cooling to loosen them up.  This should make it easy to remove them and then let them finish cooling on a cooling rack.

How to make Edible Cookie Dough

While the cookies are cooling, it is time to start with the cookie dough.  Combine the butter, brown sugar and vanilla until smooth.  Then add the dry ingredients.  If it is too dry, then you can add a little bit of additional milk.

Once the dough is to your desired consistency, then add the mini chocolate chips.  Mini chips work great in this recipe, plus they are so darn cute!

Add 2 tablespoons of mini chocolate chips {or regular sized} and 2 tablespoons of heavy cream into a microwave safe bowl.  Microwave for 20-25 seconds.  Whisk until smooth.

But it isn’t until you take a bite of these chocolate chip cookie dough bites that you truly get the heavenly tastes and textures.  The creamy cookie dough with the soft cookie on the inside, yet a little crunch on the outside is spectacular.

I can’t say enough good things about these chocolate chip cookie dough bites.  If you store then in the refrigerator then I recommend taking them out for a few minutes before eating them.  The cookie and dough tend to harden which makes them a little tough to eat.  Enjoy!  You can thank me later.
