Homemade Anniversary

My better half loves Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites, but naturally, I do not. I try my hardest not to pull faces or voice my opinion whenever a box shows up, but eww! Just look at them!
Am I the only one who thinks they look like animal leavings?
So what's a girl to do? Shut your mouth and get in that kitchen!
I came across this recipe during an afternoon of Pinterest-ing. Yeah, it's a verb.
The recipe is very simple; beat the butter and sugar together, mix in the remaining ingredients, roll into 1" balls, and chill for half an hour. Melt 6 ounces of chocolate in a double boiler while the bites are chilling, then drizzle with melted chocolate.

Word to the wise: the original recipe claims to yield 24 1-inch bites. I used a melon-baller to help me roll mine and I got SEVENTY 1-inch bites! Yikes! My only advise is to share the wealth and freeze any surplus. It worked out great for me because I had the opportunity to give my better half these treats in celebration of our two-year anniversary. Te amo mi mundo!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites
1 c salted butter, softened (if using unsalted butter, add 1/2 tsp salt)
1 1/2 c packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 c all purpose flour
6 oz mini chocolate chips
Cream butter and sugar. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Roll into 1" balls and chill for 30 minutes. Drizzle with melted chocolate. Store in the refrigerator.
Until next time!
