I’ve been making this edible chocolate chip cookie dough recipe on repeat, literally, and it’s near impossible not to sneak bites of it throughout the day from the fridge!

After making Kroll’s Kookies, I knew I had to make a version of that chocolate chip cookie dough into a safe to eat edible cookie dough recipe.

It’s loaded with mini chocolate chips, regular chocolate chips, heat treated flour (more on this below) and the perfect ratio of sugars. Trust me, I tested and tested to get that ratio juuuust right!

The reason an edible chocolate chip cookie dough recipe is preferred over snacking on the raw cookie dough from a batch of chocolate chip cookies you just made is the potential risk of consuming harmful germs that can make you sick.

Flour is considered a raw food, and if eaten without heat treating, E. Coli. is a concern. And if consuming raw eggs, Salmonella is the concern.

I know the extra step of heat treating the flour sounds like a pain, but I promise you it’s EASY PEASY and takes less than 10 minutes.

You’ll love this edible chocolate chip cookie dough recipe because…

  • No big electric stand mixer required!
  • It’s delicious as is, or mixed into vanilla ice cream or a milkshake.
  • Comes together in just 15 minutes (or even faster if you have the heat treated flour pre-made!)
  • It’s a fun, no bake treat that is loved by all.
  • It’s perfectly sweet, safe to eat, and you’ll be eating it by the spoon full!

Ingredient Notes

ingredients to make edible cookie dough.
  • All Purpose Flour and Cake Flour: Since this recipe is based off my famous Kroll’s Kookies, I heat treated both flours to create the perfect texture.
  • Unsalted butter: softened at room temperature for just 10-15 minutes is perfect. You don’t need it overly soft or melty.
  • Dark brown sugar: the dark brown sugar gives the cookie dough a rich flavor and gorgeous color.
  • Powdered sugar: In my recipe testing I found using powdered sugar, as opposed to granulated sugar, gave the cookie dough a better consistency and texture. It’s soft and smooth as opposed to grainy.
  • Whole milk: A little is necessary to thin the dough out, since we’re not using any eggs a little moisture is needed.
  • Vanilla extract: Be sure to use a high quality vanilla. You could also use a combination of vanilla and almond extract if preferred!
  • Salt: a little salt helps to cut the sweetness in the cookie dough.
  • Chocolate: I love using a combination of regular milk chocolate chips and mini chocolate chips. Feel free to use whatever your favorite is.

Step by Step Directions:

  • Heat treating the flour is very important, please do not skip this step.

FAQ

What happens if you bake edible cookie dough?

You can bake it, but it’s not as yummy as my go to chocolate chip cookie recipe. If you’d like to bake them, just know since they don’t have eggs or baking soda or baking powder, they may come out flat. try 350°F for 8-10 minutes.

How long does edible cookie dough last?

Up to 5 days in the fridge stored properly in an air-tight container or in the freezer for up to 1 month.

How do you keep edible cookie dough soft?

My recipe uses whole milk to add some moisture to get the best texture. After you store the cookie dough in the fridge, it will harden so just allow it to come to room temperature again when you’re ready to enjoy it.

What’s the difference between cookie dough and edible cookie dough?

Regular cookie dough has eggs and in edible cookie dough, there are no eggs, and the flour is heat treated so the cookie dough is safe to consume without risk of harmful germs.

How do I heat treat flour for edible cookie dough?

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spread the flour onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat and bake for 7 minutes in the oven or until the flour reaches 160F.
