Bready or Not: Rolo Snickerdoodle Bites

In this second month of cookies, there's been one prevalent theme. No, other than the cookies! And the sugar. And the tastiness and general unhealthiness of everything. No, no, everything has been baked! So it's time to do some non-baked goodies that you can throw together in a hurry.

Sugariness, tastiness, and unhealthiness are all still part of the theme.

If you love cookie dough, this is an especially dangerous recipe because there's no egg involved--you can nibble away on as much dough as you want without any worries of microscopic menaces.

Like I let microscopic menaces stop me, anyway. Pfft.

This recipe is flexible. You can stuff the dough bites with just about any small candy--Kisses, halved fun-size bars, even mini Oreos. If you have any leftover holiday candy around--or are buying some for Valentine's Day--this is a good use for it. Beyond, you know, eating it plain.

The original recipe called for heavy cream, which isn't something I keep around that often. I used vanilla almond milk and it came together just fine. You could also use milk, half and half, or soy milk, and I bet no one would notice the difference.

I used my teaspoon scoop to form the dough and it made 35 balls.

Rolo Stuffed Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough Bites
modified from Cooking Classy

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 generous tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup salted butter, softened
2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
3 Tbsp heavy cream/milk/almond milk/milky thing
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

30-35 Rolo candies, unwrapped
3 Tbsp granulated sugar
3/4 tsp cinnamon


1) In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, 1 tsp cinnamon, nutmeg and salt, set aside.

2) In the bowl of an electric mixer, whip together butter, brown sugar, 1/4 cup granulated sugar and cream of tartar until pale and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Stir in cream or milk and vanilla extract. Add dry ingredients and mix until combine.

3) In a separate small mixing bowl, whisk together 3 Tbsp granulated sugar and 3/4 tsp cinnamon. Scoop dough out a teaspoon at a time, then press one Rolo into the center of scooped dough and seal the bottom with a tad extra dough.

4) Roll each dough ball into cinnamon sugar mixture. Chill or serve immediately. Store cookie dough bites in refrigerator. Makes about 30-35 balls.
