I'm a human being on planet earth. I've lived hundreds of lifetimes. In this incarnation I'm here to advance medicine.

Fact: this recipe is much more likely to fall under the category of “living to eat” than “eating to live”.

Fiction: healthy living blogs should not be able to occasionally feature recipes for food with little-to-no nutritional value.

Fact: ’tis the time of the year for treats and splurges (in moderation, of course).

Although I did tweak the original recipe a bit, I’m not going to attempt to pass off these sweet little bites as a healthy snack. These “snowballs” are a decadent dessert through and through, which I maintain has its place in any diet.

A rich white chocolate shell enrobes an egg-less chocolate chip cookie dough filling to create these scrumptious indulgences. What they lack in size, they make up for in rich flavor and pleasantly dense consistency. I made a batch to give out as holiday gifts, but don’t think I didn’t swipe a few to enjoy myself!

White Chocolate Cookie Dough Snowballs

adapted from Paula Deen’s Cookie Dough Truffles

yields 25-30 snowballs (I halved the original recipe)


  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 (14-ounce) can fat-free sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips
  • 3/4 pound white chocolate, chopped


  1. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter (or margarine) and brown sugar in a large bowl until creamy. Add vanilla. Gradually beat in flour and milk. Add chocolate chips and fold in with a rubber spatula.
  2. Using a mini ice cream scoop, spoon dough onto waxed paper-lined cookie sheets. Chill in the refrigerator for about 1 hour, then roll into balls using your hands. Chill the balls for at least 2 additional hours.
  3. Set a large glass bowl over a medium pot filled with 1-2 inches of boiling water. Add the white chocolate to the bowl, and stir until melted.
  4. Using two forks, dip each cookie dough ball into the melted chocolate and roll around until completely coated. Place on waxed paper-lined cookie sheets and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
