Updated: Jan 23
Happy Vday! Show them u love em with Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Bites. Made with brown honey butter, and sprinkled with flaky fleur de sel, this is now the only appropriate way to you I love you.
Makes 30-60 bites
1/2 cup butter
2 tbs honey
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbs white sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 & 3/4 cup flour
1-2 tbs milk (if needed)
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
2 cups bittersweet chocolate
1 tbs vegetable oil
Fleur de sel
In a small, heavy bottomed saucepan, add the butter. Brown the butter over medium low heat, stirring constantly. It should take 4-5 minutes. Once there are brown bits in the butter, add the honey and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for an additional 2-3 minutes to cook the honey, stirring often.
Transfer the honey butter to a bowl and put in the freezer for 30 minutes, or until it solidifies. You can also leave it out at room temperature over night.
Add the honey butter, both sugars, and the vanilla extract to the bowl of a kitchen mixer. Using the paddle attachment, beat on medium (4) speed for 2 minutes, or until pale and fluffy.
Add a pinch of salt and the flour in increments, waiting until fully combined to add the next addition. Once all of the flour has been added, scrape down the sides of the bowl. If the dough is crumbly, add the milk, a little at a time, until a cohesive, uniform dough is formed. Reduce the speed to low and add the chocolate chips. Mix until just combined.
Press the cookie dough into a parchment or foil lined baking tray in a thin layer. Place in the fridge for 1 hour to firm up.
Once firm, use a heart shaped cookie cutter to cut out hearts. Alternatively, you can also use a knife to cut the dough into small squares instead. Keep in the fridge until ready to dip in chocolate.
Use a double boiler to melt the chocolate. Once the chocolate has started melting, add the vegetable oil and stir. Once fully melted, remove from heat.
Dip the cookie dough bites into the melted chocolate using a fork. Make sure to only work with one or two bites at a time. Scoop the bites out of the chocolate and lightly shake to remove excess chocolate. Place the bites on a parchment or foil lined tray or cooling rack. While still wet, sprinkle with fleur de sel. Place in the fridge to set the chocolate, then serve.
