Note on flour: 

Heat treated flour is best to ensure the recipe is the safest to eat. You can purchase heat treated flour but it is often pretty hard to find as not many brands or stores carry it.

An easy way is to just do it yourself. You can put the flour in a microwave safe bowl and microwave a few minutes. The flour needs to reach 165 degrees. You can check this by using an instant read thermometer.

If you prefer to use your oven, put the flour on a baking sheet and bake for about 8 to 10 minutes at 350 degrees. This will prevent you from having to eat raw flour.

It is really easy to do.

How Long Does Cookie Dough Last in the Fridge?

Refrigerate in an air tight container for up to 5 days in the fridge. If you love cookie dough as much as we do, they won’t last long in the fridge.

Can I Bake This Cookie Dough?

No, you cannot bake the cookie dough. Since ,there are no eggs or leavening in the recipe. it will not rise.

Tips for Edible Cookie dough bites:

  • The cookie dough will be harder in the refrigerator as the butter solidifies.  Let the cookie dough sit a room temperature for a few minutes and it will soften.   
  • Cookie scoop – Use these to make the dough balls. It goes super fast and helps to make the dough into uniform balls.
  • More ideas: We also like peanut butter cookie dough. You can reduce part of the butter and add a little bit of peanut butter to the recipe. The flavor combination of peanut butter and chocolate is so yummy. You can also try white chocolate chips. Either mix them with the milk chocolate or substitute entirely.
  • Topping ideas! Break up the balls and put in vanilla ice cream. It tastes like cookie dough ice cream.

How to Freeze Edible Cookie Dough

You can also freeze this up to 3 months. We love it and often make a double batch and put some in the freezer. You will love having this readily available.

To thaw, simply allow them to thaw in the fridge or on your counter until ready to eat.

Edible Cookie Dough Flavor ideas

  • Peanut Butter Cookie Dough – Reduce part of the butter and add a little bit of peanut butter to the recipe. The flavor combination of peanut butter and chocolate is so yummy.
  • White Chocolate Chip – Try white chocolate chips instead of the regular chocolate chips. Either mix them with the milk chocolate or substitute entirely.
    • Funfetti or Birthday Cake Cookie Dough – Eliminate the chocolate chips. Instead add in white chocolate chips and 2-3 tablespoons of rainbow sprinkles. This is my kids favorite edible cookie dough.
