This Cookie Dough BonBons recipe is a special one. Not only because they are beyond delicious and insanely easy to make, but because it was featured on one of my first ebooks. A few years ago I embarked on a fun journey with my business partner, Michelle Cehn (founder of World of Vegan), to write a vegan ebook with approachable and tasty recipes. It was called The Friendly Vegan Cookbook, and it was the first spark that brought to life our latest cookbook (also called The Friendly Vegan Cookbook)! It’s so exciting to be able to share this recipe with you all!
Who doesn’t love cookie dough? It’s soft, sweet, and amazing. This bonbon recipe is half the trouble and double the fun since it is basically two recipes in one. The bonbons are made with this simple cookie dough recipe and then covered in melted chocolate. You can use the dough for any dessert you like, including our favorite ‘straight out of the bowl’ special.
You can use the same dough to bake some simple chocolate chip cookies. Instead of melting the chocolate chips, mix them into the batter. Scoop the dough into large spoonfuls and place on a cookie sheet (lined with parchment). Pat down the dough slightly to flatten and bake them at 350 degrees F for 10 mins. Voila! Freshly baked cookies and bonbons in one go.
These tasty cookie dough bonbons are such a great option if you’re looking to gift something but don’t want to keep on buying “things”. You can make double the batch and then store them in some pretty glass containers. Add a sweet note and a cute ribbon and you’re set. There is something about homemade gifts that have the ability to really touch people’s hearts.
