Cookie Dough Bites [vegan]

I love cookie dough and when I came across this one I couldn't wait to make it as my other half has recently become a vegan. You would never know these were vegan though unless I told you. I think people get hung up on the word vegan and think you are on some weird diet. No weird ingredients in this recipe. I already had all the ingredients for these simple to make bite size treats. So even though I am not a vegan, I am going to try out more vegan recipes. These were a good one to start out with and if you don't have vegan margarine use whatever margarine or butter you have and your favorite chocolate. It was very hard not to just eat this dough straight from the bowl. My brain is now thinking about different ways I could use the cookie dough... Cookie Dough Brownies?

Ingredients:
½ cup Vegan Margarine
¾ cup Light Brown Sugar, packed
¼ tsp Salt
1 tbsp Pure Vanilla Extract
2 tbsp Water
1 ¼ cups Plain Flour
½ cup Mini Dark Chocolate Chips
340g (12oz) Dark Chocolate


Steps:
  1. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or tin foil.
  2. Using a mixer, beat margarine, brown sugar, salt, vanilla, and water until combined. Add flour and beat until incorporated. Fold in mini chocolate chips. Cover dough and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. Roll chilled dough into 1-inch balls with the palms of your hands. Place on prepared baking sheets. Freeze for 15 minutes.
  4. Melt the remaining chocolate in a double boiler or microwave. Let cool to room temperature. Remove one tray of cookie dough balls from the freezer. Dip each ball into the melted chocolate and remove using two forks. Place the coated balls back onto the baking sheet and transfer to the refrigerator. Repeat with the second tray of cookie dough balls. 
  5. Chill until the chocolate is set, about 20 minutes. Store in refrigerator until serving. 
  6. Enjoy!
The chocolate had a bit of frost on it in the pictures as I left them in the freezer overnight... once the chocolate thawed it looked darker like in the last picture. They were very yummy!
