Edible Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

I can’t tell you how many times a week that we run to the grocery store to pick up a tube of cookie dough for my 14-year-old daughter. Every time we do it, my husband asks me if it’s safe for her to eat it raw and quite honestly, I don’t know, but we continue to do it.

I thought our family was crazy when all we wanted to do is eat the cookie dough and not cook the cookies because that has always been the best part of making cookies! Licking the spoon and taking your finger and getting the last morsel out of the bowl and thinking that we are such a rebel and living on the wild side. Then the cookie dough craze began all over the country and I realized that it wasn’t just our crazy little family that the whole country felt the same way!

The closet edible cookie dough shop is several miles away from my house. Since that’s not an option and we won’t be jumping in our car to go to Salt Lake each night, we needed to come up with a solution other than running to the store for a tube! We all know the homemade is better than store-bought dough.  The best thing is that you can make it to order, go a little crazy and add a few sprinkles! Goodness, you could even serve it in a cone and everybody’s mind will be blown!

  1. What a wonderful idea – deliciously dangerous in that I might eat too much – but much safer than traditional cookie dough! Sharing on the Hearth and Soul Facebook page. Thank you so much for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Link party!

  2. Yumm, this recipe sounds amazing! I’ve tried some recipes in the past that just tasted like butter. I’m excited to try this recipe out!

  3. When I was little I used to go in the kitchen when my grandma would make cookies and always get my fingers in the dough. She would always tell me off, saying it’s not good to eat raw. So I understand the struggle! πŸ™‚ It’s great that you’ve made a recipe that it is actually safe to eat raw! πŸ™‚

  4. I’ve never thought of eating cookie dough but actually it doesn’t sound all bad!! I like that you’ve come up with your own way of making it, I am sure you are right – home made is always best! About it being safe to eat, I can’t really see why not.. if there were eggs involved I don’t think that would be ok!!

  5. Sounds tasty! I’m vegan but this is totally doable with just a switch of the butter (Earth Balance would work) and using vegan chocolate chips. Super cool!

  6. Wow! this such an amazing and tempting recipe, I would love to try this Edible Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough for my kids, and I’m pretty sure that they will love this recipe.

  7. yes! this is my favorite thing in the world! whenever I bake cookies I always end up eating half the dough by myself hahahaha
    so when I found out there was edible cookie dough I was so happy πŸ™‚ and your recipe particularly is almost just like mine! i just don’t put any sugar

  8. This will be a great recipe for the holidays! Your post is awesome and thanks so much for sharing it with us at Full Plate Thursday. Hope you have a great week and come back to see us real soon!

  9. Sounds amazing! This recipe doesn’t contain eggs, which presents most of the risk for raw cookie dough. Everything else is safe to eat raw! My husband would love this, he’s always sneaking raw cookie dough.

  10. The family is not crazy, this is genius! Who doesn’t like sneaking some cookie dough? Going to make a big batch of this for an upcoming party with friends, I know it will be a hit!

  11. Looove cookie dough- I am the same way! Rather eat the dough than the cookie… same with brownie batter lol. Honestly, the unsafe part is the egg. As long as it is fresh when you use it, and the dough doesn’t sit forever before you eat it it should be fine. Obviously refrigerate it… but cold cookie dough is better than warm imo. Plus there is enough sugar in it that it will act as a preservative.
