Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Growing up I was not allowed to eat raw dough AT ALL. Not even in small doses occasionally. So if I wanted to eat cookie dough, I had to get creative. And since I LOVE it (no one is surprised), I became a pro at making edible cookie dough at a young age. 

This edible recipe for chocolate chip cookie dough tastes exactly like the real deal! I’m an adult now so rest assured that I have done taste-test comparisons. The texture of the cookie dough is spot on and the flavor is just as dreamy as any risky cookie dough. This recipe will omit the egg and ask you to quickly heat-treat the flour in the microwave. These swaps are super easy to make and then you can eat as much chocolate chip cookie dough as you want completely guilt-free (well, at least on the food-borne illness guilt scale).

Edible Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ingredients

  • All-purpose flour – You’ll do a basic heat-treat to this flour in the microwave to make it safe to consume without baking. 
  • Salted butter, room temperature – I always use salted butter, but you could use unsalted if you’d like. 
  • Granulated sugar
  • Brown sugar
  • Milk
  • Vanilla 
  • Salt 
  • Mini chocolate chips – I don’t know why, I just love the mini chips here! You can of course use bigger chocolate chips if you’d prefer.
