  • 1 tub (15 ounces) edible chocolate chip cookie dough, chilled (SEE NOTES FOR HOMEMADE VERSION)


  • 4 bars (4 ounces each) semi-sweet baking chocolate bars, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and remove the chilled cookie dough from the refrigerator.

  2. Scoop out the cookie dough with a one tablespoon scoop and roll it into a ball. Place it on the parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining cookie dough.

  3. Place the balls of cookie dough in the freezer to chill while you prepare the chocolate coating.


  1. While the balls of cookie dough are in the freezer, melt the chocolate. Add the chocolate pieces and oil to a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 20-second increments, stirring after every 20 seconds, until the chocolate is melted and creamy. Let it sit for about 5 minutes to cool before dipping the cookie dough balls.


  1. Remove the cookie dough balls from the freezer. Working one at a time, gently drop the cookie dough into the melted chocolate, making sure they are completely covered in chocolate.

  2. Using a fork, lift out the chocolate-covered cookie dough. Use a toothpick or another fork to slide the cookie dough candy onto the parchment-lined baking sheet.
  3. Drizzle the remaining chocolate over the candies. Place in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes, or until the chocolate has set.
  4. Store candies in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
