If you're like me, then half of the time you find yourself eating all the cookie dough before it makes it into the oven. I feel guilty every time that happens, so I came up with the perfect creative solution. These chocolate chip cookie dough truffles are meant to be eaten in dough form and are eggless, so don't worry about the dangers of salmonella. Plus, they're small enough that eating one is (nearly) guilt-free. That is, of course, if you can stop yourself at just one.
