Cookie Dough Ball

Sometimes it feels like once November rolls around I never leave the kitchen. We have so many birthdays in winter, plus Thanksgiving and Christmas. I often feel like I never leave the kitchen! To make being in the kitchen a bit more fun for me and to include my kids in the process I try to make food a bit more fun.

I make food more fun by making sure it looks interesting and tastes amazing! I love cookie dough but it really is not good to eat uncooked because of the eggs! I kept seeing recipes on Pinterest for a cookie dough ball that had no eggs in it- it’s kind of like a cheese ball you see at parties, but instead of cheese cookie dough! To make it a bit more festive for the holidays I use red and green chocolate chips once the stores set them out!


-8 oz cream cheese, softened.
-1/2 cup butter, softened.
-1 cup powdered sugar.
-2 tbsp brown sugar.
-1/2 tsp vanilla.
-1 cup mini chocolate chips (x2)
-Animal crackers.

1. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until fluffy. Add sugars and vanilla, continue to mix until combined.
2. Fold in chocolate chips.
3. Cover and refrigerate for two hours, or till not sticky anymore.
4. Take your Cookie Ball out and shape into a ball.
5. Refrigerate for another hour.
5. Just before serving roll your Cookie Ball into chocolate chips.
6. Serve on a plate with animal crackers


  1. I would never have thought of a dessert cheese ball, but why not?! This looks yummy and will be a great dessert to keep the family together around the table after dinner instead of spreading out with cookies.

  2. That’s a cute idea. Don’t you love Pinterest?

    This sounds marvelous…I think I will make it as a pre dinner snack for Thanksgiving. They can pick on it while watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade on ‘TV.
