Edible Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is SO Good!
Cookie dough…it’s a treat that moms and teens can completely connect over.
Just like these chocolate chip blondies!
And edible cookie dough is gaining popularity!
Even in a world with keto and kelp fanatics!
For sure we should eat healthy, but what’s life without cookie dough and super-soft Nutella cookies.
I don’t want to live in a world without those two.
Did you hear there was a shop that sales cookie dough by the scoop in NYC?
It’s on my bucket list to do!
Edible Cookie Dough is Becoming Popular!
I definitely want to try one of each of their flavors.
Big goal, I know…
But with my kids help, I believe I can conquer it!
Not really, but it sounds fun…;0)
Back to the truly unique store in NYC.
Be sure to stop by when you’re in the neighborhood! <3
Homemade Edible Cookie Dough
But let’s chat about our homemade version of edible cookie dough.
This is a fun treat I like to make for family nights, birthday parties or a weekend treat.
(We have a HUGE list of family night games and snacks here you can check out! We even created some printables to make it even MORE awesome!)
Creating my own edible cookie dough also helps my kiddos stay out of the unsafe cookie dough when we’re baking cookies!
And you can definitely make this in bulk, freeze it and use it later to make your own chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream!
And you can also try this chocolate chip cookie dough pizza when one cookie dough dessert just won’t do!
I prefer making my own anyway because I always feel ripped off when I buy a pint of cookie dough ice cream and there’s only about ten pieces cookie dough in it.
Ten, tiny little pieces.
No thank you.
Can You Can Freeze Edible Cookie Dough?
Don’t forget to keep a stash of cookie dough bites in the freezer too for those stress-eating moments — for you or your teen daughter…;0)
You can easily make cookie dough bites by pinching off the edible cookie dough in this recipe, rolling it into tiny balls and then freezing it on a parchment lined cookie sheet util firm.
Once the tiny balls of edible cookie dough are firm, you can toss them in a large freezer storage bag for emergency stress eating days.
Not like I do that or anything…;0)
To make this recipe super safe and edible, be sure to “heat treat” your flour.
There’s always a chance that your flour is contaminated, so “heat treating” is a must for our family!
INGREDIENTS NEEDED FOR COOKIE DOUGH:
Edible Cookie Dough Ingredient #1: Light brown sugar.
Please do not take shortcuts and try to use white sugar.
You will definitely sacrifice flavor.
Edible Cookie Dough Ingredient #2: Unsalted butter, softened
If you accidentally melt your butter, take extra time to chill the dough or start over and use softened butter.
Edible Cookie Dough Ingredient #3: Dash of salt
Just a dash!
Edible Cookie Dough Ingredient #4: Vanilla Extact
I recommend real vanilla!
Edible Cookie Dough Ingredient #5: Milk
Whole milk delivers the best flavor.
Edible Cookie Dough Ingredient #6: Heat Treated Flour
We talk about treating the flour below.
Edible Cookie Dough Ingredient #7: Mini Chocolate Chips
Mini chocolate chips make this recipe fun!
How to Make Cookie Dough Safe to Eat
What’s “heat treating”?
That’s the simple term used for pre-baking flour for no-bake recipe.
How to Heat Treat Flour for Homemade Cookie Dough:
Spread out the desirable amount of flour onto a cookie sheet.
Bake the flour in a 350 degree oven for ten minutes.
Doing this “heat treatment” help kill off any bacteria so you can enjoy a safe, edible, super yummy cookie dough recipe!
Super simple, right?
Oh, and I highly recommend using mini chocolate chips in your cookie dough.
They’re so tiny and cute, but more importantly when you use the mini version, you get more chocolate in every bite!
But you can be a renegade and use the normal sized ones if you like…;0)
Hey, if it’s chocolate, it’s going to be a good cookie dough!
Go ahead and make this super simple recipe to celebrate anything wonderful happening in your life!
