    Oh my – I HAVE to try these – I was wondering how you could make them without eggs. Now I know!


    • Anonymous replied: — December 16th, 2011 @ 12:53 PM

      you don’t have to avoid the eggs– the salmonella is from the egg shell, so just wash the egg off before you use it.

    • Jim replied: — December 19th, 2011 @ 5:38 AM

      If the chickens that laid the eggs are
      infected with salmonella, the yolks will contain it as well.
      In today’s world, the chances are 1 in approx. 100,000
      that your store egg will have it in the yolk.

  19. Becca — December 16, 2011 @ 1:26 AM (#

    I made these tonight but instead of using nuts in them(I’m not a fan) I used Heath bar pieces. And they were delicious. I sprinkled a few pieces on top to make them look pretty.

      Great idea, Becca!!! 😀

    Mine didn’t turn out in a dough form and I followed your recipe to a T. When you said 1/2 cup of butter thats 8 tbs.Mine came out more like creamy peanut butter what did I do wrong? I’m trying to refridgerate it to see if that will help. hmmm…


    • Laura Rucker replied: — December 16th, 2011 @ 10:31 PM

      Hi Lin! I’m sorry to hear that! Did you refrigerator them for 2 hours after mixing together?

    • Anonymous replied: — December 18th, 2011 @ 11:06 PM

      Hmmmmm….I would suggest making sure that the butter was softened, and not too melted…. let it sit out on the counter for a bit….also making sure it is pure butter, not margarine/ vegetable oil based substitutes?

    how many does this recipe make


    • Laura Rucker replied: — December 18th, 2011 @ 2:20 PM

      Whoops, forgot that part! Sorry! Approx. 5 dozen. The dough balls need to be about 1″ across. I hope this helps. Thanks!

    Mine also was the wrong consistency to ball. I used a small cookie scoop. Rey are in the fridge now so we’ll see how they are then. My butter was perfectly softened…just could make a thumbprint in it.

    From the original site: Just a few tips!:
    These are delicious and if you taste the batter before you chill and roll it, you WILL think something is wrong but GIVE IT TIME! The flour needs time to absorb the wet ingredients….Here is a few tips I have found while using this recipe…
    1 If you do not use nuts, it is good to compensate with something else like more chocolate chips…it helps with the thickness of the dough.
    2 You do not have to put the batter in the fridge overnight like some suggested to get the balls to roll easy, just put the batter in the freezer for around 20-30 minutes then scoop them and roll
    3 If it is a little sticky, don’t use flour to roll the balls, use powdered sugar and just put a little on your hands before rolling
    3 After melting down the chocolate, LET IT COOL before rolling…this will help with the melting cookie dough problem…and while it is cooling, leave your ready balls in the freezer to keep them cold

    I make these except I use cream cheese and oreo cookies ( or nutter butter) oh my these are so yummy , I just crush the cookies in a baggie using a rolling pin to crush them up nice and fine ( dont scrap off the insides leave it on the cookie) (reserve a few tablespoons of the cookie crumbs for topping later) mix with softened cream cheese , form into balls, I stick them in the freezer for about hour to get nice and firm, then melt the chocolate in which ever method works for you, dip them in the chocolate, (and you can use white or dark chocolate, its your choice) I sprinkle a few reserved cookie crumbs on top, pop back into the freezer for little bit and enjoy, they are soo good, especially the nutter butter, tastes better than a reese cup,
    I made some for Christmas and of course they were devoured quickly so I had to make another batch, they are so easy when using cookies, actually you can use any cookie you like, just mix into the cream cheese and dip in chocolate, Delicious and easy too

      so you make these, except you change the recipe entirely by using none of the same ingredients and getting an entirely different product. brilliant!

      Love this!!! I have to try this someday! Thanks for your version of the recipe, Debra! Mmmm!!! 😀

    Do they need to be stored in the refrigerator?


    • Laura Rucker replied: — January 29th, 2012 @ 10:10 PM

      That’s a good question, Cindy. I didn’t even think of this when I did these because they were gone before the sun set! HAHA! Anyway, I think they will hold up better if kept in the ‘fridge, especially during the warmer months. There isn’t any egg in them, but I wonder about the condensed milk going sour. Better to be safe and chill them if they are devoured in a few hours.

    Wow~ easy to make.. i do love chocolate :9
    Thanks for sharing this Ms. Wonka 😀 *are you Wonka’s wife?* LOL

    Can you use regular cookie dough? Do you have to use the condensed milk? That adds so many calories.

    Google has some stories, including one from CBS news, regarding the risk of illness from eating uncooked flour.
