Valentine's Day is just days away and I wanted to give my loved ones something sweet, but easy to make. I received a review copy of The Healthy Gluten-Free Life, and it inspired me to make cookie dough bites. Although I've already made two recipes from this cookbook and loved them, I decided to use my grain-free, refined-sugar free recipe for these cookie dough bites.
What I love most about this cookbook, beside all the great chicken and side dishes, is the photos. My husband, the book designer, and I disagree here. This is the second review cookbook we've been given by this publisher, and he thinks the size of the book is too big. But the size is exactly what I love about this book! (Lets just say I'm right ;-) The book is as big as a magazine but much thicker (like four magazines put together), and with beautiful mouth-watering full-page photos on every page. The photos make me swoon.
I've already made the Ginger Lime Chicken Bites & Coconut Chicken Strips, and they were yum-o. I haven't made any of the breads, but I'm sure that if you use gluten-free grains (we don't often eat gluten-free grains), these would be stellar. The English Muffins look amazing. Most of the desserts also use more gluten-free grains than we like to eat, but I'm more than happy to use this cookbook for the entrees and side dishes only —there are tons of them.
For the cookie dough bites pictured above, I used this cookie dough of mine, minus the chips. I froze the dough in small balls for a good eight hours or more. Then I melted this chocolate over a double boiler and rolled each frozen cookie dough ball in the melted chocolate.
Place the coated bites on parchment paper to dry, then store them in a container in the freezer.
