Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Bombs

These divine, decadent, chewy, chocolatey mouthfuls were inspired by an Ani's Raw Food Essentials recipe for raw almond cookies (pg291). I altered the recipe so much I'm happy to call it my own but it started by drooling over her pic and recipe.

I didn't feel like the intense-ness of almond essence ... and the hubs isn't a fan but I love using nuts to un-bake so I went with a traditional vanilla flavour. I made them frozen/chilled instead of dehydrated because I like my cookies doughy and chewy and what better way to top off a decadent dessert than with a chocolate coating?

Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Bombs
Makes 5
1/2 cup Raw Cashew Nuts
1/2 cup Raw Almonds
Tiny pinch of Salt
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
Stevia to taste
50g Dark Chocolate (good quality 70%+)
  • Combine nuts in food processor
  • Process until a crumb forms
  • Check the texture mixture by pressing it together in your fingertips- it should release some oil and stick together
  • Scoop into approximately tablespoon size bites/balls (I used a spoon like this)
  • Place in freezer/fridge to firm while you
  • Chop chocolate into even pieces
  • Melt in a Bain Marie (bowl over a pot of hot water)
  • Place cookies on a cooling tray with baking paper under it
  • Spoon melted chocolate over cookies- make sure all sides are coated!
  • Refrigerate to set
  • Enjoy!
  • (Sorry, I have no idea how long they keep, they were gone in a flash!)

Made 5, I ate 1. The hubs got to the others-needless to say they were a HIT! Before the last bite had been taken I heard 'so, when are you making these again?'  I just know you'll love them too.
