Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Balls Edible Christmas Wreath

This Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Holiday Wreath is a delicious, easy and showstopping Christmas themed dessert that will wow your holiday guests.

I love treats that border on a craft, and today’s Christmas dessert idea is definitely a fun one. I’m going to show you how to make chocolate covered cookie dough pieces decorated and arranged to look like a Christmas wreath!

Feel free to use your favorite eggless edible cookie dough recipe, but I used a mix and it was delicious. I found these bite sets from Betty Crocker and knew they would be good and easy. There are even different flavors!

Instructions for use

Step 1: Follow the instructions on the box to mix the cake batter.

You need 2 grams of cream cheese and 2 tablespoons of butter for each package you use from the box. I used three packets from the box and needed about 24 grams of candy melts, which was two bags of the type I bought.

Step 2: Roll the dough into smooth, even balls and place on a baking sheet. I used a cookie scoop to help me get about the same amount of dough for each ball. Freeze the dough for at least 20 minutes.

Step 3: Place candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 30-second intervals until smooth. It is best to heat it gently and less than you think, otherwise you can burn or seize the chocolate and then it has to be thrown away.

Step 4: Use a fork to drop the balls of dough into the hot chocolate one at a time. Cover the entire surface with chocolate, then tap with a fork until much of the excess chocolate drips off. Place a piece of waxed paper on top of a cookie sheet and repeat. When the chocolate no longer covers the balls evenly, put it back in the microwave for 12-15 seconds to reheat it. Then continue dipping balls and placing them on waxed paper until all the balls are coated. If you want to add sprinkles, do so immediately after dipping while the chocolate is still wet. Otherwise, the litter will not stick. Another option would be to drizzle a coordinating chocolate color on top of the green. The mix comes with a packet of chocolate to sprinkle on, so this would be super easy.

Put the whole pan in the fridge until the chocolate has set, then you can remove the balls and break off any excess chocolate that has collected around the bases.

I’m telling you, these were a real treat. The crunchy chocolate outside with the creamy cookie dough inside is super good.

Step 5: When it’s time to serve the dessert, place the cookie dough balls on a round platter in the shape of a wreath and top with a red ribbon. Easy peasy! Just be sure to refrigerate any leftovers.
