Edible Cookie Dough

Sometimes you want something sweet but don’t necessarily want to put in the effort involved in baking. Maybe you’re having a lazy weekend with your friends, or maybe you’re cuddling up for a movie night with your sweetheart. Whether it’s one of those reasons, a bad day (or week), or just because you’ve got a sweet tooth, edible cookie dough is sure to hit the spot. Back in my hometown, my friend Rachel would sometimes come over for movie hangout days, and one of her favorite movie foods was cookie dough. When I made this batch, she was the first person I contacted to say “look what I made!!”

Even over here on the other side of the country, I know I have girlfriends who would love to grab some big blankets, a bowl of cookie dough, some coffee, and a good movie and enjoy the afternoon on the couch. At some point, I might work out a recipe for “doggie dough” as an alternative to put in a Kong toy so that our furry friends can join in on the fun. There will likely be more dog-friendly recipes in the future, now that we have a pup of our own. To meet her, go on over to the About The Author page.

Ingredients
1/2 cup Brown sugar, packed
4 tbsp Butter, softened
1/4 tsp Vanilla extract
2 tbsp Milk
3/4 cup Flour
1/4 cup chocolate chips
2 tbsp Rainbow sprinkles

If you want to be extra safe, bake your flour at 350 degrees F for 5 minutes to kill off any bacteria before you start. Once that’s done, mix everything but the chocolate chips and sprinkles together in a bowl. Once everything is combined, fold in the toppings and enjoy. The recipe makes enough for three to four people (or two very ambitious ones).

Experiment with other combinations. Throw in some cocoa powder in place of half as much flour and some shredded coconut. Add in butterscotch chips. Skip the toppings and roll the dough into nuggets before tossing it in cinnamon and sugar. Add nuts. The possibilities are endless!
