Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

I, like many people (I suspect), eat chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream solely for the cookie dough bits. Whenever I buy it, the container ends up full of gouges where I’ve tried to dig deep for just one more sugar rush of a cookie dough hunk. How fortunate that there exists a candy that’s…
