Chocolate Chip Dough Balls Success

Oh yes…chocolate chip dough balls…finally!

Chocolate Chip Dough Balls Recipe

7 batches later, I finally have a chocolate chip cookie dough ball recipe to share with you guys!

But maybe you’re wondering what the heck dough balls are anyways. Well…

IMG_8357.jpg

…back at the Foodbuzz Festival a couple weeks ago (wow, has it already been that long?), the buzz of the tasting pavilion was Annie the Baker’s dough balls. I had two. They were amazing. I knew as soon as I tasted them that I just had to try to re-create them at home.

On Monday, I was too jet-lagged to be creative, but on Tuesday, I attempted my first batch. Little did I know that on the other side of the country at (possibly) the same time, Mama Pea was working diligently on a vegan version of dough balls in a peanut butter flavor. Her balls came out beautiful and perfect.

IMG_8724.jpg

Mine started out ok, but…

…they baked up completely flat. (real photos from batch #1…oy vay! I was too embarrassed to publish them last Tuesday)

IMG_8740.jpg

I mean they were flatter than normal cookies, even. It was a total fail. *tear*

But, you guys know me…I like a good challenge. And, I would NOT let these dough balls get the best of me.

I researched what caused flat cookies and tried to do the opposite. My main takeaways were:

  • I needed to put the dough in the refrigerator before baking it
  • I needed to reduce the amount of baking soda I used
  • I needed reduce the amount of liquids in the recipe

So, I modified my recipe and tried…and tried…and tried again.

As I mentioned earlier, my second batch more resembled dog treats than human treats.

I tweaked the draft recipe and while my third and fourth were pretty good, but didn’t have the right texture (though they were at least no longer flat).

My fifth made for a delicious regular chocolate chip cookie, but once again, they were flatter than they were supposed to be (though not nearly as flat as the dreaded batch #1).

Chocolate Chip Dough Balls Recipe

By batch #6, things had gotten serious. I knew I was on the verge of success, but wanted to put the dough balls through several tests before finalizing my recipe. I tried various variations of the draft recipe with the same dough, but different baking methods:

  • I tried refrigerating the dough
  • I tried freezing the dough
  • I tried baking the dough balls at 350, 375, and 400 degrees F

I tried various trial versions of the dough balls and made hubby do a taste test.

He thought they all tasted really good.

Notes on baking times and modifications.

A strange collection of dough balls baked from frozen, refrigerated, and at 350, 375, and 400 degrees F.

Which version will taste the best?

Only a taste test would tell.

I liked the version that was refrigerated and baked at 350 best.

So, here we are at lucky batch #7. See below for full recipe, but here are some photos to help.

The wet just before stirring into the dry.

Chocolate Chip Dough Balls Recipe

It will look like there is entirely too much flour and not enough dry. You may think you’ll never be able to get cookie dough out of this desert of a bowl, but keep working the dough. Trust me. Just press the wet dough back into the dry parts, using the back of the spatula. Try to not over-mix, though.

Chocolate Chip Dough Balls Recipe

Add in chocolate chips and Boom!

Chocolate Chip Dough Balls Recipe

You have chocolate chip cookie dough.

Now, you won’t actually want to eat this dough. Since it has raw egg in it (unless you use a flaxseed egg, and trust me, I will be testing that version of the recipe out sooner than later to ensure it works), you can’t safely eat it until it reaches 160 degrees F, according to various web sites.

First you’ll want to chill the dough a bit. You could probably skip the refrigeration step, but your dough balls may be a little more flat and cooked through in the center.

Chocolate Chip Dough Balls Recipe

Use a small scooper to scoop out same-sized balls of dough.

Chocolate Chip Dough Balls Recipe

I think this is either a melon baller or a sorbet scoop. Use the one that is smaller than an ice cream scoop. The one with the little sweeper button will make this process a bit easier for you.

Roll the into balls.

Chocolate Chip Dough Balls Recipe

You can try skipping the ball rolling step, but since the balls will flatten out a bit during baking, I find it best to try to get them as “tall” as possible so they stay more ball-shaped throughout the cooking.

IMG_9713.jpg IMG_9705.jpg IMG_9708.jpg

Bake and you should have perfect little dough balls.

Chocolate Chip Dough Balls Recipe

You’ll want to look for very light browning on the raised area of the dough balls. For the most part, they may look like raw cookie dough when you remove them, but you don’t want to cook these too long or you’ll just have tall cookies and not dough balls. Likewise, you don’t want to undercook these because of the eggs. I used a meat thermometer to ensure the centers of my dough balls were over 160 degrees F to be safe.

The bottoms will be lightly browned.

Note cooked outside edge and tender inside. That’s pretty much what you’re looking for.

But, you can cook your balls a minute or two longer if you want your center a bit more set, like this.

Chocolate Chip Dough Balls Success

  • Author: Diana of thechiclife.com
  • Prep Time: 1 hour 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour 25 mins
  • Category: Dessert
  • Cuisine: American


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 stick butter, softened/room-temp
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 egg (or flaxseed-egg)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

Newer and Preferred Method (Scoop and Freeze)

  1. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix sugars and butter till creamy. (I used a handheld mixer, but you could probably just use a whisk). Add egg and vanilla and mix till combined.
  4. Mix wet into the dry. Note: it will appear there is not enough liquid for the amount of dry ingredients, but continue mixing. It will form into a dough, it will just be a firm dough. See tips above for combining. Careful to not overmix.
  5. Gently fold chocolate chips into the dough, without overmixing.
  6. Use a small sorbet scoop (about 1″ wide) to scoop out dough into small mounds. Note: In this method, I don’t roll the dough into balls, I just scoop straight to the baking sheet. Try to not let dough touch too closely so they don’t freeze together. Freeze for at least 30 minutes, though 1 hour is better if you can wait that long. See Notes below for tips on baking/freezing.
  7. When you’re ready for some sweet and delicious dough balls, pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees F. Bake balls for 8-10 minutes, depending on how set you want your centers (I find mine are perfect at 9 if the oven is well pre-heated). I usually consider mine done when the tips of the dough are lightly brown. If you use egg, and you’re paranoid like me, you can use a meat thermometer to ensure the centers of the balls are at least 160 degrees F, which many web sites say is the safe temp to eat eggs.
  8. Let your dough balls cool till they’re save to eat and enjoy!

Original Preparation Method (Chill and Scoop)

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix sugars and butter till creamy. (I used a handheld mixer, but you could probably just use a whisk). Add egg and vanilla and mix till combined.
  4. Mix wet into the dry. Note: it will appear there is not enough liquid for the amount of dry ingredients, but continue mixing. It will form into a dough, it will just be a firm dough. See tips above for combining. Careful to not overmix.
  5. Gently fold chocolate chips into the dough, without overmixing.
  6. Refrigerate dough for at least 20 minutes before using a small sorbet scoop to scoop out dough into small mounds. Roll each mound into a ball and spread evenly on a baking sheet, leaving roughly 2-3 inches between each ball.
  7. Bake balls for 10-14 minutes, depending on how set you want your centers. If you use egg, and you’re paranoid like me, you can use a meat thermometer to ensure the centers of the balls are at least 160 degrees F, which many web sites say is the safe temp to eat eggs.
  8. Let your dough balls rest on the baking sheet to cool at least 5-10 minutes or until they’re safe to eat. Enjoy!

Notes

I almost always make a double batch of these, especially using the “Scoop and Freeze” method. I like to freeze the scooped dough balls on a baking sheet for at least an hour to overnight before moving them to a flat tupperware container. This way, you have dough balls ready to bake whenever you’re ready to eat them!

This is my favorite dough ball flavor, but the sugar cookie version is a close second!

I’m hoping to try out some other flavors I’ve been dreaming about (I’m thinking of mixing in oatmeal and almond paste!), but be sure to check out Mama Pea’s scrumptious Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Balls for another wonderful flavor option and a vegan version.

  1. I have been waiting for this recipe since all of you Foodbuzz goers posted pics a couple weeks ago! Thank you for doing all of the hard work of figuring out a great recipe! I’m going to make them tomorrow, and I’ll come back to let you know how they turned out for me! Thanks again!

  2. Mmm!! Thanks for sharing all your hard work with us and the beyond amazing results. Just so you know, I would be happy to take some of your test cookies and success cookies off your hands. Don’t want to crowd the kitchen too much! Also, I’m pretty sure I’m available for taste testing 😉

    Reply
    • Hey Natalie! I think your kitchenaid would be just fine. The only part I’d watch for is when you’re mixing the wet into the dry. I would think that the kitchenaid would be pretty good at combining the two, but if it looks like it’s not coming together, you may want to mix this part by hand. Just keep an eye on it. 😉

  3. In all seriousness, I think this is a great idea. I mean, how many people LOVE to eat cookie dough? This combines the best of both worlds. This is baking season, right???

  6. Hi Diana,

    After hearing so much about the infamous cookie dough balls, I’m excited to have finally found a non-PB version. I might just try them right now. But…I do have a weird request: could you email me the recipe for the failed first attempt? I love the looks of the pics you posted. I know – I’m weird, but I love a good flat cookie, as long as it is really soft and chewy. Those pics remind of of a total cookie failure I made many years ago that turned into a happy accident when I made chocolate chip cookie bowls and then used then for ice cream sundaes. I’d love to lood at attempt #1 and try it out!

    Thanks,
    Alanna

  7. Ahhhh! I’ve been waiting for a peanut butter-less, chocolate chip version of these! Thank you so much for having the patience to go through the trial and error of seven batches. I really appreciate your mad recipe-tweaking skillz, and I’m so excited to make these tomorrow. Thanks again!

  9. Yesyesyes!! Thank you for going through 7 batches to perfect this recipe Diana. Your efforts are worth it! I’m happy there is a non-vegan version out there now too, because now I don’t have to buy vegan margarine to try it 😛 These are happening in my kitchen sometime this week – I’ll report back on how it goes!

  10. Thanks for the recipe! I tried making these but modified it by replacing the chocolate chips with walnuts and adding oats. Turned out pretty good!

  11. I just made a batch of these, and must say – well done, Diana! You have captured the deliciousness of Annie’s cookie dough balls in a great homemade version 🙂
    I am going to figure out a way to make sugar cookie dough balls and maybe even decorate them a bit, for the Holidays… fun!

    Reply
  12. I made these tonight – I nixed the chocolate chips and added oats and cinnamon. I also rolled them in a cinnamon sugar mix before baking. They turned out great. I’ll put ’em up on my blog this week.

    Reply
  13. I made these last night, and while they were tasty…they were very dry and crumbly, and I even baked them for slightly under 10 minutes….

    Anyone know why that might be?

    Reply
    • Hmm…not sure why. Did you use the proper portions of wet ingredients for the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar and eggs? I wonder if maybe you didn’t mix them enough? The flour should be incorporated fully into the wet. Hmm. Does any one have any ideas?

      Reply
      • I measured everything out correctly and the batter looked really good, so I don’t think it was that.

        I did however have to make my own baking powder by using baking soda+cream of tartar, but I doubt that variance would change the texture that much….

        Oh well! Just means I’ll have to make them again 😉

        Reply
        • Hey Amalia…maybe you baked them too long so they got dried out? Or maybe your oven is hotter than it says. So hard to tell with ovens being so different, etc. lol. Good point about “having” to make them again. 😆

  14. I tried your recipe the other night. Are they supposed to taste like raw dough? I love raw cookie dough but the taste kinda made me sick to my stomach. The bottoms were browned lightly. Did your batch taste too doughy or just like a soft cookie?

    Reply
    • Hey Emily, the texture if really a personal preference thing. But, it sounds like you didn’t cook them long enough. If there are any left, you could possibly try baking them another minute or two. You may need to play around with the baking time. When I was testing, I would bake two at a time and cut into them to see how they looked before I baked a whole batch. Mine turned light brown on the bottoms before the top started to get golden. You’ll probably want to wait till the raised tips in the tops of the balls are juuuuuust golden. But you can also let them rest a few minutes and cut into one to test. I would say next time, you’ll probably just want to go about 2-3 minutes longer than you did this time. Happy baking! 🙂

  15. I made these tonight with a flax egg instead of a real egg. They turned out great!

    The last time I made them (using mama pea’s recipe) I didn’t soften the butter like I should have and they were crumbly. I think the proper softening is really important.

    Reply
  16. I have to say that I am totally impressed by your dedication! I’m glad you stuck with it though because these are amazing!! I made them the other night and already can’t wait to make my next batch 🙂 I have to admit I accidentally added too much butter (oops), though it didn’t exactly hurt the flavor any, haha

    I took a whole bunch to work yesterday and they were a huge hit! After handing them out to several co-workers I put the extras in the kitchen and they were devoured in about 2 seconds. So thank you for the recipe!!

    • Yay Lauren! I’m so glad to hear the dough balls were a hit not only with you but your co-workers. It’s amazing how fast things can get devoured in an office, no? lol

  17. I saw Susan Balancing ACt link these…and yes, you did a great job. 7 batches later. Girl I would have given up! I am like a one shot to get it right girl. I keep messing w/ the batter til I can “Save” it. I am cheap…on both ingredients$$ and time and never want to throw anything out…or repeat performance it. You are dedicated 🙂

    Reply
    • I am pretty cheap with the ingredients, too. Luckily, the “messed up” batches were just not right in texture/flavor, but were still pretty tasty. Hubby has eaten an insane amount of cookies over the last few weeks. hahahahahaha 🙂

      Reply
  18. I made these and followed everything exactly except I used Smart Balance margarine and they turned out pretty dry and crumbly- not doughy at all! I baked them for 11 minutes…could my butter sub have been the problem?

    Reply
    • It’s possible. 🙁 Did you soften the margarine before mixing?

      Also, I sent out a tweet to my twitter friends to see if anyone else has tried Smart Balance yet. I know a lot of people have used Earth Balance with success, so you could possibly try that?

      Reply
  19. The texture was absolutely perfect but mine were not sweet at all! My husband asked “is this bread or a cookie?” I read and re-read the amount of sugar a zillion times. Did anyone else have this issue? Afraid if I just dump in more sugar I will mess up the texture.

    Reply
    • @Jennifer – I just made them last night and had the same issue! Have you tried to re-create them? It needs more sugar for sure, but I’m also afraid to mess up the texture.

      Anyone have any advice or suggestions?

      Reply
      • Adding too much sugar or butter may make them flatten out. I actually like it when cookies aren’t too sweet, so I may have been a little light-handed on the sugar on purpose. Whoops! 🙂 I would suggest adding sweet mixins, or possibly rolling the balls in sugar to add extra sweetness without changing the texture. Happy baking!

        Reply
  20. I’m catching on late… I just made these and they are absolutely heavenly!! The texture was perfect.. I was so tempted to add a tbsp of milk to the mixture and I’m so glad I listened! I was reading some of the comments regarding the sweetness of the cookies… maybe using more regular sugar in place of brown sugar will make the cookies sweeter? I did 1/4 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup regular sugar and a tbsp of brown sugar. Thank you. I’m building the tower to take to my office bake off!!

  22. I made these today for a party tonight along with a peanut butter version of the butterscotch ones. They are so tasty I am not sure if they will all make it to the party ;). I wanted to post a note because I substituted in wholewheat unbleached flour on both recipes, and I used chia seeds+water in place of the eggs. They turned out beautifully. Thank you so much for the all the hard work on getting this recipe together. I will be making these again soon!

  23. Hi!
    After hearing about these amazing balls, but knowing I’d never be able to buy them, as I live in Australia, I knew I had to make them one day. And then you posted your trials! Amazing!!

    I made them today – SUCESS. Good news is they work down-under too!! And even if your egg is a double yolked egg (I didnt pour it into the glass first – thats the last time I try to rush my baking) – they just end cracking (maybe I overbaked?!) Sounds like it might be a little forgiving, so I might try experimenting with flavours/health later.

    I found them sweet enough and I am a sweet tooth. I am not very accurate so maybe I added a tbsp more of the brown sugar, but they retained their shape.

    Husband loves them too!

    Thanks sooo much!

  24. Just tried these with a flax/chia egg (i did mixture of flax and chia – the flax wasn’t getting very gelatonous on its own) and the dough tasted AWESOME and the cooked dough balls turned out great too!!

I thought they were perfectly sweet– and that’s coming from someone who adores over-the-top sweet things, too! I’m going to have a hard time NOT eating all of these in the next two days. Just wondering– did you end up with 16 cookies, too? That’s how many I made using a 1″ baller.

    Thanks for a great recipe! Love your blog! 🙂

  37. Hi Diana!! I know I am a bit late to this post/receipe, so I hope this message gets to you! It is just a few days away from Christmas and I decided to bake these little cute cookies for everyone. Everyone includes A LOT of people. What can I say? I have a HUGE immediate family.
    Anyway, I was wondering what the yield was for the receipe above. I just wanted to know how much, or an estimate of how much cookies will come from this batch.
    Thank you SO MUCH in advance!!! Not just for reading this and responding, but for providing us with this delicious little treat. You definitely deserve kudos for making sure these turned out PERFECT! You’re a gem! 🙂 Looking forward to your reply! Thank you!!!!! 🙂

    Reply
    • Hi again! I guess I was excited an spoke too soon about the yield. I see now its about 16…which is exactly how much I got out of the mix using a melon baller lol!
      I just want to say how delicious these turned out! I made 3 batches and need to make a couple more, but I cant stop eating these! So good! Would change a thing about them! They are the perfect little bite size chewy cookies! Mine might have turned out a tiny bit smaller than the rest due to using the baller. Thanks again dahling! For a fantastic treat! 🙂

      • Hi Erin! Thank you so much for your kind comments! I’m so glad these turned out so great for you! The single batch isn’t too big since I originally came up with the recipe for just me and hubby. However, most days, I’ll double the ingredients and make a double-batch and freeze whatever I don’t feel like baking so I can bake off however many cookies I want later. I’ve never tried making three batches at one time, but it doubles nicely. Not sure if that helps. If you need a lot, maybe you can do two double batches? Anywho, thanks again for stopping by! Merry Christmas! 🙂

        • Hi again, I hope you and yours had a wonderful Christmas. 🎁🎄🎅
          Cookies were a HUGE SUCCESS!!! I am actually making more as we speak LOL.
          Came back to write down the receipe this time and file away in my little box of treats. 😉 Every single cookie was eaten, so now I am making another batch for the boyfriend and me! Ive successfully bookmarked this page too and look forward to more of your great posts! Have an amazing New Year! I feel like i owe you something since you “gave” me this perfect receipe haha! 😊❤

        • Hi Erin! You are too sweet! I’m so glad to hear the cookies were such a success. Woop! There’s a “Print” button with the recipe details. I’ve converted almost all of my recipes (at least the popular ones) to a print-friendly version. The button is just below the small photo that goes with the recipe (on the right side of the recipe details). Anywho, you definitely don’t owe me anything for the recipe. But I’m so happy you came back to comment and let me know you enjoyed the recipe. These are the things that keep me experimenting in my kitchen. 🙂 Merry Christmas! And Happy New Year!

  38. I personally dont care for cookie dough per say. But I hate chocolate chip cookies because of how flat they are. I recently had one at a get together that reminds me a lot of these except they were cooked in the middle and a scoop wasn’t used. Which I liked the look of them better because of that. A fork was used to scoop little mounds into the cookie sheet and it gave them a homemade look with little peaks on the top. They were almost but not quite cake like in the middle. Would these turn out that way if cooked a bit longer? Thx

    Reply
    • Hi Carrie, I formulated this recipe so it doesn’t spread too much when you bake it. It does a wee bit, but it mostly holds its shape. Especially if you use the “scoop and freeze” method. I don’t think the scoop makes as much of a difference as the ingredient proportions and freezing the dough before baking. But I’ve only ever made it using the scoop, so I can’t say for sure. Hope this helps. Let me know how it turns out if you try it. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

  39. A few years too late haha thanks Google…No matter what recipe, mixing method, ingredient/dough temperature, or oven I use my chocolate chip cookies almost always turn out like your #7. It’s actually kind of annoying because I want them to be semi-flat with obvious chunks of chocolate in them. Oh well. Kudos to your saintly patience!!

    • Hi Katherine! Lol! Cookies can be so fickle! But they’re fun to make…and even more fun to eat! Hope you nail that semi-flat cookie one day. Cheers! 🙂
